High End Knives: William Henry Pocket Knives

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

Case or Buck that will function flawlessly for farm and ranch use, or for hunting or defense for 50 bucks give or take. You could pick up a good fast opening light weight “tactical” knife from one of these or another company specializing in such knives for about the same, and certainly under 200.00 as well. Some of us might even top out at the 3 or 4 hundred dollar range for that “just right” tactical knife that is so fast to deploy that one might think it had read the bad guys mind before he even approached. That is not most of us, though.

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!

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.

Buck Chinese Made Knives Are they Any Good?

Buck Chinese Made Knives Are they Any Good? You might be surprised at our conclusions! In the end, I reached a conclusion that even I didn’t expect. I do not dislike foreign made knives. In fact, I love those great German and Brittish and French and Swiss and Japanese knives, but I always prefer them to be made in their respective countries! The problem is that there are few knifemakers throughout the world who make all of their knives in their home country. There are a number of different variations on this theme. For instance, French knife maker Opinel does not use French steel but rather relies on Sandvick from Sweden, which is great steel. Honestly, I don’t see a problem with that. Some companies make all of their own components and then have them assembled elsewhere. Some of the old Solingen German knife makers do it this way around I understand. There are even variations in the variations, but that is getting a little far down the rabbit hole for this article. Still, by f

The Buck 110 Folding Hunter

The Buck 110 Folding Hunter This knife and its locking system may be the most significant event in the history of knives since the invention of carbon steel! In 2014 Buck Knives celebrated the 50th anniversary of the most significant event in the history of folding knives since carbon steel! They also celebrated because this innovation may well have been the salvation of the company, and possibly even the salvation of the industry! The Buck 110 Folding Hunter Back Lock What was this monumental innovation? It was a locking system which upon opening the knife to the fully open system, locked it down tight and rigid like a fixed blade knife. This invention, when used with a large sharp knife could keep you from chopping off some fingers with an accidental closure, and made it possible for a knife of the type and size needed for hunting and defense to be placed inside a pocket, or in a small scabbard on a belt without getting all that unwanted attention one might get when carrying a fi

Republic Of Knives

Republic Of Knives Republic Of Knives, what is it about? Republic Of Knives is first and foremost, about knives! We are not, at the moment at least, attempting to found a new republic known as “Knives”, although we think that would be an awesome republic, and we may have to give that idea some serious thought in the future! Republic Of Knives Is about the state of Knifedom! Once again, we are not concerning ourselves with a state called “Knifedom”, but the state, that is, the condition of knife “culture” and knives in today’s world. Not all is well. There would appear to be a decline in the stability of commercial handmade or mostly handmade knife companies in their respective home countries with the movement of much of the manufacturing to countries where labor is less expensive, and in some cases, where quality may be questionable. This has some mixed results. On the other hand, there seems to be a resurgence of custom knife making and hundreds of talented custom k
