William Henry B12 Spearpoint V-8
Edition of 100 pieces: #49
The Spearpoint ‘V-8' features a mesmerizing frame in hand-forged 'River Rock' damascus by Chad Nichols, inlaid with Fordite (aka 'Motor City Agate'). The blade is hand-forged 'Intrepid' damascus steel by Chad Nichols; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with Kashmir Blue topaz gemstones. A remarkable design that gives you an instrument with a full-size secure grip, and a versatile deep-belly blade, the Spearpoint epitomizes William Henry’s core philosophy – that superlative function deserves to be elevated to superlative art. The ‘V-8’ features some of the most exotic materials, artistry, and hand-forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a timeless heirloom to be proudly carried and used for a lifetime before being handed-down to another generation.
Fordite, also called Motor Agate or Detroit Agate, is an entirely man-made jewel created by scraping layers of the enamel paint slag that had been dripped into pools onto the metal tracks during the “old days” when Ford and other assembly-line cars were spray-painted by people, not robots. The colors and patterns of Fordite can vary dramatically, and no 2 pieces are ever the same.
