William Henry Studio Starship pocket knife in 24k yellow gold and silver koftgari, inlaid with carbon fiber. The 2.13 inch Damascus blade is hand forged by master artisan, Mike Norris. The one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with spinal gemstones, which are hard glassy minerals occurring as octahedral crystals of variable color and consisting chiefly of magnesium and aluminum oxides. Koftgari is the name for fine gold patterns inlaid into parkerized steel. This ancient Indian technique, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold (and/or silver) into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Beautiful and timeless, koftgari is nearly a lost art. All William Henry knives feature a unique serial number which is engraved into the blade to assure the authenticity and lifetime traceability of the product. This knife is shipped in an elegant wood presentation box.
