William Henry BOLT BELIZE
A sleek and elegant pen that writes beautifully, carries comfortably, and catches the eye. The Belize features our bolt action mechanism, inspired by bolt action rifles, which locks open and spring releases closed – and yes, it’s a lot of fun to play with. Barrel is crafted from solid carbon fiber (not a single wrap), and trim accents are all in stainless steel. Both the thumbstud (on the bolt action system) and the top of the pen are inlaid with blazing red topaz gemstones. Modern mechanics, clean lines and timeless craftsmanship.
Carbon fiber is a material consisting of microscopic fibers composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio. Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.
Carbon fiber’s properties, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, competition sports. William Henry uses the highest grade, and beautifully textured carbon fiber for its collections of jewelry, knives, money clips and cufflinks.
