William Henry B10 TAOS Pocket Knife
LIMITED EDITION OF 250 PIECES
The Lancet ‘Taos’ features a beautiful frame in ‘Wave Mokume’, inlaid with orange spalted beechwood. The blade is ‘Wave’ damascus with an extra strong core in ZDP-189; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with citrines. Sleek, elegant, refined, and comfortable in the hand and to the eye, the Lancet defines the essential gentleman’s folder in the modern world. The ‘Taos’ features some of the exotic materials and hand-forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry’s collections; a timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime before being handed-down to another generation.
William Henry’s patent-pending Wave Damascus features a core in ZDP-189 (HRC 67) or VG-10 (cryo-tempered to a hardness of HRC 61) for superior sharpness and edge retention over time.
Wave Mokume is another William Henry exclusive material (patent pending) that fuses traditional metal forging with modern fabricating technology. This alloy features copper, stainless steel, and pure iron in a 55 layer billet patterned with our undulating Wave.
Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities.
The name is derived from Latin citrina which means “yellow” and is also the origin of the word “citron.”
Beech is an important and widely-used hardwood. Its hardness, wear-resistance, strength, and excellent bending capabilities, make this hardwood a mainstay for many skilled woodworkers. Depending on soil conditions, Beech can grow to very large sizes.
The veneer tends to be slightly darker colored, as slicing the veneer usually requires the wood to be prepared with steam, which gives the wood the beautiful golden tone
