I have seen so many knife fossils brown, white, tan, beige, blue, and brown fossils but bright Orange? Nature flexes every once in a while so we can see truly what the Earth can do.Hs Exclusive Wave pattern for its Damascus blade with a black-coated TUNGSTEN. The ZPD-189 core of this knife, mentioned in the COA, is at HRC 65-67. The HRC simply is the hardness of the knife. Most strong knives are around 60.
That means this knife is incredibly hard but balanced by the cutting of the ZPD-189 core that was specifically made with stainless steel and nickel. At the top of the frame is starts the Koftgari technique which is 24k gold inlaid.
Even better is the part of the frame that is gold is polished and, then parkerized. That is the process of protecting steel from effects such as corrosion. Usually the Koftgari is just at the top or just at the bottom.
This one of a kind knife will not follow standard rules or ideals. No, with this piece, the Koftgari spreads. The golden leaves slowly float from above down along the scales of the piece.Being the orang fossil that it is, it can only remind me of the time of autumn when the leave fall. The skies and land are painted orange and brown. William Henry knives seem to always follow some sort of theme. I love to find them. The button stone and thumb are two strikingly gorgeous diamonds positioned within two 18k gold bezels. The scaling is made of a piece of fossilized mammoth.
It has only been a few thousand years since they went extinct. A slice of a natural history could be in your pocket in the form of a knife or, displayed in your favorite room/office.The fossil is also ring-cut. The fantastic purpose of this particular type of cutting in this fashion is the reason for it.
You can see the aging of the animal uby the markings and rings similar to a tree. Please, refer to the COA picture attached specifically about further details into the scales mentioned above and somewhat.The removable and replaceable tray insert of the display box has are in great shape. There is only a tiny bit of natural wear on the insert. The knife has never been carried or sharpened.
It is in pristine condition. Please, do not hesitate to contact me with questions.I took a variety of pictures to try to get every angle but if you would like more just ask! If you like what you see make sure to check out my other William Henry listings! I only list one of each Collectible knife. This means there are no doubles and no second-chances if you miss out on a knife. There will be more listed over time though. If you do fancy a certain type of knife whether it be the type of lanyard, display box it comes with, scales, inlay material, certain gems involved, koftgari, blade patterns, carvings, age of blade completion, size of set, silver, or gold etc, you can message me to see if I have anything along those lines unlisted as well. New ones are going up all the time.
