The Bighorn features a beautiful bolster finely hand-engraved with 24K gold inlays by Don Patch, and scale in desert ironwood. The blade is hand-forged 'Hornet's Nest' damascus by Mike Norris; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with citrine. The Spearpoint is a simple design that is easy on the eye and effortless in the hand; the elegant shape of the handle on this design is also an ideal canvas to showcase fine hand-engraving or exotic materials. This stunning engraved piece features a rich and unique synthesis between function, exotic materials, and the superlative artistry that is the hallmark of William Henry's collection.

Our Desert Ironwood is sourced responsibly from Arizona and Northern Mexico, from the lower reaches of the Sonoran desert. It is very hard, very dense, and is one of a handful of woods that sinks in water. Ironwood also features some of the highest contrast and striking patterns of any wood in the world. Once used by the Seri Native Americans of Mexico for tool handles, we proudly offer premium grade ironwood on a variety of William Henry tools.
Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities. The name is derived from Latin citrina which means "yellow" and is also the origin of the word "citron." Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine.
