From the depths of the ocean to the palm of your hand. The Coast features the timeless iridescence of Mother of Pearl, the original shell of the mollusk that gives birth to precious pearl beads. Always shifting colored highlights flash against a white backdrop. The pearl inlay is framed in a black G10 composite handle, tough and comfortable. Fully polished by hand, assembled and dissembled multiple times, this architecture has an open channel to see thru to the damascus tang. The blade/tang are forged from 67 layers of three alloys, with a core of VG-10 at HRC 60 for optimal sharpness and wear resistance. Finished with a leather lanyard, sterling silver accents, and includes a sturdy black leather sheath.
Overall Length: 6 7/8"
Mother of Pearl is the common name for iridescent nacre, a blend of minerals that are secreted by oysters and other mollusks and deposited inside their shells. William Henry uses premium mother of pearl material sourced directly from suppliers in Australia, selected for maximum color and figure.
