William Henry A200-2
William Henry’s A200 expands on our tradition of fine folding knives with a design that has a little attitude, a lot of finesse, and remarkable utility in a compact and lightweight package. Each blade is crafted from CPM 20-CV stainless steel honed to a razor edge. The frame is hand-finished aircraft grade titanium with inlaid Kirinite, an exceptionally durable polymer. Finished with a stainless clip and stainless fittings, and proudly built in the USA.
CPM 20CV STAINLESS
CPM 20-CV is an ultra high-grade stainless steel developed by Crucible Metals, the leading US innovator of performance steels. CPM stands for Crucible Powder Metals, their most exclusive engineered alloys, and the 20-CV indicates an infusion of Vanadium, Chromium, Molybdenum and Tungsten for wear resistance, sharpness, and corrosion protection. Tough, durable, razor sharp while still being ‘sharpenable’, and stainless. Built to last a lifetime, proudly offered on select models from William Henry.
Kirinite is a custom acrylic polymer, sets the standard in elegance and durability. Originally developed by Eagle Grips, this material has been engineered and tested in the toughest environments. It is color-stable, durable, and hand-finished beautifully in our shop. Kirinite is crafted in the USA, using a single-batch process, so every piece is unique. Worthy of an heirloom tool, worthy of a William Henry…
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.
