This exquisite fixed-blade is built from one solid piece of forged damascus steel.  We start with a big billet, 108 layers in all, of stainless damascus and then grind away material to reveal the final form.  We use alternating layers of 9Cr Chromium steel and Cobalt, for a tough and durable edge with a hardness of HRC 59-60, worthy of the most challenging tasks.  The Techno is finished with inlays of carbon fiber, shaped by hand to the frame, and double etched and polished to reveal the unique pattern of the damascus within.  Limited edition of 250 pieces, includes a sturdy leather sheath and certificate of authenticity.

Materials & Artistry
Carbon Fiber

Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is a material consisting of microscopic fibers composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio. Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.
Carbon fiber's properties, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, competition sports. William Henry uses the highest grade, and beautifully textured carbon fiber for its collections of jewelry, knives, money clips and cufflinks.

VG10 Damascus

VG10 Damascus

William Henry’s VG-10 damascus is created from billets with 67 layers of three different alloys.  The center, or core, features premium VG-10 stainless steel tempered to an optimal hardness of HRC 60-61 for exceptional sharpness and wear resistance.  The core is sandwiched between 33 layers of alternating nickel and steel which we use for tensile strength thru the blade, and to reveal the remarkable forged patterns within the composite alloys in the finished piece of steel.  Our final acid etch and hand-polish reveals the tapestry within, as each alloy reacts to the acid and emerges in contrasting tones of black, grey, and silver.  Each unique pattern is created by different forging dies used on each sandwiched billet of steel.
