William Henry B09 Glow Knife
B09 Glow – Light & Resilient
Edition of 250 pieces.
The Kestrel ‘Glow’ features a light and resilient frame in aerospace grade titanium, inlaid with Zinc Matrix apple coral. The blade is hand-forged ‘Boomerang’ damascus by Chad Nichols; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with white topaz gemstones. The Kestrel is a compact but versatile folder that works and presents beautifully in any situation; the design, which offers a deep finger groove at the intersection between the handle and blade, makes this knife remarkably comfortable in the hand while being very small and easy to carry.
ZINC MATRIX APPLE CORAL
Apple coral is part of the species of corals known as melithaea sponge, which is commonly found on the ocean floors around the waters of Taiwan, Indonesia and southern China.The destruction of coral reefs around the world led to a global ban on coral mining and collecting in 1992, but apple coral was not included.
The United States has placed a ban on shipping coral in and out of the country, but there is no ban on the melithaea sponge corals.
Our apple coral is infused with zinc to obtain a beautiful and original pattern.
