Titanium is a low density, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including sea water, aqua regia and chlorine) metal with a silver color. It was discovered in Great Britain by William Gregor in 1791, and named by Martin Heinrich Klaproth for the Titans of Greek mythology
William Henry uses only aerospace-grade titanium alloy for our frames, clips, and micro-fasteners. Called 6Al/4V, it is titanium with a little aluminum and vanadium added in for additional toughness and tensile strength.
KASHMIR BLUE TOPAZ
Topaz is a rare, extremely hard gemstone with an exceptionally wide color range that, besides brown, includes various tones andsaturationsof 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, whileblue topaz is a birthstone for December
William Henry’s VG-10 damascus is created from billets with 67 layers of three different alloys. The center, or core, features premium VG-10 stainless steel tempered to an optimal hardness of HRC 60-61 for exceptional sharpness and wear resistance. The core is sandwiched between 33 layers of alternating nickel and steel which we use for tensile strength thru the blade, and to reveal the remarkable forged patterns within the composite alloys in the finished piece of steel. Our final acid etch and hand-polish reveals the tapestry within, as each alloy reacts to the acid and emerges in contrasting tones of black, grey, and silver. Each unique pattern is created by different forging dies used on each sandwiched billet of steel.
