Ventana 'Harmony'

Edition of 5 pieces
B06 HARMONY

Ventana 'Harmony'

B06 HARMONY

The Ventana ‘Harmony’ features a beautiful frame in 24K gold Koftgari (the ancient Indian technique of inlaying gold and/or sterling silver in tool-steel), inlaid with a scale in gold lip mother of pearl. The blade is 'wave' damascus with an extra strong core in ZDP-189 steel; the one-hand button lock is set with a citrine. 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 'Harmony’ features a perfect synthesis of our most admired and unique 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

'Wave' Damascus with ZDP-189 material image

'Wave' Damascus with ZDP-189

William Henry's patent pending Wave Damascus features a ZDP-189 core (HRC 67) clad with alternating layers of stainless steel and nickel silver. The billet, 45 layers in all, is patterned with a custom die to create the undulating waves that emerge across the bevels of the blade. This material can be dark-etched for contrast, or etched and re-polished for a more subtle pattern.

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 techique.

Goldlip Mother of Pearl material image

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.

Citrine material image

Citrine

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.
