Edition of 100 pieces
M3 ANTON

Zurich Anton

M3 ANTON

The Zurich ‘Anton’ features a frame in hand forged 'Raindrop' Mokume Gane (the ancient Japanese forging art used to decorate the hilts of Samurai swords) by Mike Sakmar. The inlay is signature wood from Hawaii, punctuated with white topaz. The clip is machined and polished from tempered stainless steel, with a beautiful engraving bright cut against the matte-finished background.
The ‘Anton’ money clip is a beautiful, and functional personality statement featuring some of the exotic materials and forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime before handing it down to another generation.

Unique Material Info

Unique Material

This piece features one of our hallmark materials.
These natural materials owe their patterns and distinctive color palette to the specific and often unique conditions in which they came to exist.
Because of the fossilization process, soil composition and meteorology, these rare fossils, exotic woods, shells and rocks can show dramatic differences in color and pattern, making every piece a one-of-a-kind.
 
When you purchase a piece featuring our Unique Materials logo, the object you receive is indeed truly unique. It becomes a distinctive symbol of your own character, and an integral part of your living legacy;
a rare and precious personality statement that will accompany you for a lifetime before being handed down to another generation.
 
Please note that for these reasons, when you buy a William Henry featuring one of our unique materials, the piece you receive may look different from the one shown on our website. A truly original one-of-a-kind.

Materials

Mokume gane material image

Mokume gane

Mokume gane was developed in the 1600s in Japan, allegedly by an Akita prefecture metalsmith named Denbei Shoami (1651 to 1728). He used the mokume gane technique to dress up samurai swords.
The mokume gane technique involves fusing several layers of different metals, and artistically exposing sections of lower layers. The metal is often made to display a pattern that mimics wood grain. A variety of metals can be used to give different arrays of coloration.
Layers of metal are pressed together and fused with heat. The forged layers are carved to expose lower layers and are then pressed again. The carving and pressing is repeated to develop the pattern. 

Today, some of the finest mokume in the world is made here in the USA, and William Henry is proud to offer a range of this material on our collections. Our mokume is generally made with copper, brass, and nickel silver in either a 45 or 89 layer billet, forged and patterned by hand.

White Topaz material image

White 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.

Today, topaz is one of the US birthstones for November, while blue topaz is a birthstone for December
