Monarch - Wave' Damascus with ZDP-189 / Box Elder Burl / 'Brain Wave' Damascus
The Monarch is a simple design that is easy on the eye and effortless in the hand – practical, comfortable, and stunning in an array of color and texture that could only come from the William Henry Studio. The Monarch likes to dress in style, and has received multiple awards in the ‘investor/collector’ category of fine cutlery. The elegant shape of the handle on this design is a great place to show off exotic materials, so they use it as a canvas for the natural beauty of a range of organic scales.
William Henry crafts each tool as a distinct piece of art – the goal is to build the finest knife possible, using any means available, with an eye towards excellence above all else. To that end, they integrate a variety of modern technologies into a component manufacturing system; laser cutters, water jets, blanking presses, CNC machines, Swiss screw machines, vacuum chamber ovens, and other specialized tools are employed to turn raw materials into precision components. From there the exceptional craftspeople at the studio take over, working with hand-selected sets of components to build knives, one a time, that measure to the highest standards of fit, finish, and function. The hands and eyes at work on each piece impart warmth, elegance, even a soul, to each piece they produce. William Henry’s magic is in creating a whole that can be more than the sum of its parts, each piece a unique and timeless testament to quality where art and utility merge into one. Every knife in their collection is created through their unique synthesis of technology and craft.
Each Monarch includes either a titanium pocket clip or a lanyard system – the lanyard system also includes an leather ClipCase carrying system. Each piece is engraved with two distinct numbers – a serial number on the blade and limited edition number on the leading edge of the handle. The numbers, along with the details about the knife’s construction, are listed in the included Certificate of Authenticity.
