Ventana Golden Isle

B06 GOLDEN ISLE

The Ventana ‘Golden Isle’ features a frame in 24K gold Koftgari, inlaid with a beautiful piece of gold lip pearl. The blade is hand-forged 'Typhoon' damascus by Devin Thomas; the one-hand button lock is set with blazing red topaz.
The Ventana folding knife is our homage to the classic gentlemen’s pocket knives of a bygone era. The picture-window cutouts in the frame reveal the rare and exotic inlays that are one of the hallmarks of William Henry’s collections.
The 'Golden Isle’ features a perfect synthesis of our most admired forged metals, and exotic materials; a distinctive personality statement to be worn and used for a lifetime before being handed down to another generation.

Materials

Koftgari material image

Koftgari

Koftgari is the name for fine gold (and/or silver) patterns inlayed into parkerized steel. This ancient Indian technique, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold (and/or silver) into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Parkerizing involves soaking the steel in a boiling solution of salts to oxidize the steel a deep brown/blue. Beautiful and timeless, koftgari is nearly a lost art.

William Henry's koftgari comes from 2 small villages in India, home of the very few Indian artisans that still master this technique.

Goldlip Mother of Pearl

Goldlip Mother of Pearl is scientifically the same as White M.O.P. only that Gold is taken from the reverse side of the shell. Good quality dark Gold shells come from the waters surrounding the Philippines and parts of Indonesia. The gold section is a thin lip — like a veneer — of natural color that is carefully selected and worked to yield the deepest possible gold tones.

Blazing Red Topaz material image

Blazing Red Topaz

Topaz is a rare, extremely hard gemstone with an exceptionally wide color range that, besides brown, includes various tones and saturations of blue, green, yellow, orange, red, pink, and purple.
The ancient Greeks believed that topaz gave them strength. In Europe during the Renaissance (the period from the 1300s to the 1600s) people thought that topaz could break magic spells and dispel anger. For centuries, many people in India have believed that topaz worn above the heart assures long life, beauty, and intelligence.
Blazing red topaz is an enduring symbol of love and affection; it brings long-lasting friendship and ensures the fidelity of the one you love. When worn it is said to relieve negative emotions and bring friendship.
Early Egyptians viewed topaz as the "gem of the sun " believing that the sun god Ra bestowed it with a golden glow..
