William Henry Studios describe their knives as 'functional artistry', which is a great description of knives known for both their elegance and their exacting quality. William Henry has produced a variety of American-made knife types using a stunning array of beautiful materials. The B12 Shale is both a functional and beautiful folding limited edition knife.
The B12 Sable's 3-inch blade is 'twist' pattern damascus steel that is hand forged by blacksmith Chad Nichols. The damascus on this knife is not only beautiful, it is made with stainless steel to prevent rust.
The blade isn't the only beautifully crafted part of this knife; the handle is impressive as well. The 4.13-inch handle in made of hand forged mokume. Mokume is a similar material to damascus steel but it is made of non-iron metals like copper, brass, and nickel. Both the blade and the handle have a unique pattern, the mokume provides the knife with some heft in the hand. Between he bolsters of mokume, the upscale folding knife features a contoured handle of weave carbon fiber.
The thumb lug and button lock construction allow the knife to fluidly open/close with ease and one-handed. The knife has a one-hand button lock and thumb lug set with spinel gemstones. In fact, the knife is easy to open or close, even one-handed.
