High End Knives: William Henry Pocket Knives
High end knives from William Henry are knives made for those with discerning taste, and a big wallet, but are they worth the price? You decide.
Most of us who have a working or tactical relationship with our knives would be a little resistant to the thought of a folding knife costing more than 100.00 or 200.00 dollars.
For many, probably most of us, that would be in the upper range or maybe even out of range. You can pick up a great American made
What if money was no object?
But, what if, what if money was no object? What sort of knife might you choose to obtain? Would you commission your favorite knifemaker, maybe Boz or Onion to make you a one of a kind piece? Well, of course, you would! That would be great! Now, you can sit back and wait several years, and it would be worth the wait, but in the meantime, it would also be worth your trouble to take a look at a seemingly unlikely source:
William Henry specializes in high-end products for men. Some of us might not want to wear a bracelet or a chain, or may not ever need cuff links or tie clasps, but if we were so inclined, this is the sort of stuff that doesn’t leave one looking like he has run out of testosterone because he wears it! I am talking about the sort of products that real cattle branding, chainsaw using, construction working kinds of men like us could appreciate! In fact, I am pretty sure that most men would like some of their products, but what I really appreciate about them is that they have not gone soft on the gentlemanly art of the pocket knife!
High End Knives High Quality Workmanship
Knives as expensive as these would generate some high expectations for a high level of craftsmanship! The craftsmen associated with the William Henry brand do not disappoint! Each knife is carefully and meticulously custom-crafted with the skills of fine blacksmith joined to the exacting detail of a fine jeweler!
Rare And Unique Materials
William Henry high end knives are made of some of the finest and most unique materials on the planet. Most have one pattern or another of Damascus steel blades with bolsters from Damascus steel, or Titanium, or silver, or gold inlaid exotic materials, with handle scales made from everything from fossilized mammoth tooth on the terrestrial side, to meteorite on the extraterrestrial side and other exotic materials in between!
Are these simply for display?
I would question the practicality of using most of them for butchering a deer, but some would seem to be fine for doing so. Others I would want simply for the sheer artistry of the pieces. I am certain they would function well in any circumstance, but the fact is that something that attractive should be admired and displayed. These high end knives are also high quality practical works of art!
Some models do seem to be more practical than others and would lend themselves easily to everyday carry and use.
