Monarch, Hand-Rubbed ATS-34 / Mother of Pearl / Anodized Titanium
Classic Gent’s Collection –
William Henry Knives’ work in finely crafted gentlemen’s knives has set new standards in the design and production of folding cutlery. These series seamlessly integrate state of the art technology and mechanism with elegant styling and classic organic materials to create knives that reminisce on the past while leading the way into the future. All knives in these series use titanium as a base frame for strength, durability, and lightweight comfort. The handle scales are crafted from the finest natural materials. The Mother of Pearl is hand selected and beautifully polished to reveal the extraordinary range of color and figure in each piece. The ATS-34 stainless steel blades are hand-honed to a razor edge, and travel on Teflon washers for smooth action and minimal wear. Each knife is constructed with stainless screws and fittings that are permanently thread-locked at optimum tension during final assembly. Matt Conable, designer: “As a novice knifemaker, I traded some kitchen knives for an abalone handled locking liner made by Mel Pardue; the precision and smoothness of that knife inspired my first design for a folding knife. This series offer delicate curves, soft finishes, and elegant organic materials; these features are at the heart of my design choices.”
