The Monarch 'Jade Palace' features a frame in hand-forged 'Twist' damascus by Chad Nichols, inlaid with green jade scales. The blade is 'Wave' damascus with a VG-10 core. The one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with spinel gemstones. The Monarch is a simple design that is easy on the eye and effortless in the hand.
The 'Jade Palace' features some of William Henry's signature metals, and represents the perfect synthesis between elegance, function, modern and exotic materials; a distinctive personality statement to be worn and used for a lifetime.
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. The core of the blade is clad with alternating layers of stainless steel and nickel silver. The billet, 45 layers in all, is patterned with a custom die to create the undulating waves that emerge across the bevels of the blade. This material can be dark-etched for contrast, or etched and re-polished for a more subtle pattern.
With its beauty and wide-ranging expressiveness, jade has held a special attraction for mankind for almost 7,000 years.
Still today, this gem is regarded as a symbol of the good, the beautiful and the precious. It embodies the Confucian virtues of wisdom, justice, compassion, modesty and courage, yet it also symbolises the female-erotic.
Itcomes in many fine nuances of green, but also in shades of white, grey, black, yellow, and orange and in delicate violet tones.Only in the very finest jade is the colour evenly distributed.
This material obtained by immersing a traditional damascus billet it in an acid solution. The processcreates a striking visual contrast by enhancing the components that are more susceptible to the etching of the acid.
Natural spinel is a gemstone that has become a great favorite with gem dealers and gem collectors; one might even say that spinel is for gemstone connoisseurs only.
It is a hard glassy mineral occurring as octahedral crystals of variable color and consisting chiefly of magnesium and aluminum oxides.
Some spinels are among the most famous gemstones in the world: among them are the Black Prince's Ruby and the "Timur Ruby" in the British Crown Jewels, and the "Côte de Bretagne", formerly from the French Crown jewels.
