Limited Edition B05 Apple Valley Knife
The Monarch ‘Apple Valley’ features an elegant frame in ‘Twist’ Mokume Gane (the ancient forging technique used for decorating the hilts of Samurai swords) by Mike Sakmar, inlaid with black matrix apple coral. The blade is hand-forged ‘Intrepid’ damascus steel by Chad Nichols. 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 elegant shape of the handle on this design is also an ideal canvas to showcase fine hand-engraving or exotic materials. The ‘Coco’ features the rich and unique synthesis between function, exotic materials, and the superlative artistry that is the hallmark of William Henry’s collection.
The elegant shape of the handle on this design is a great place to show off exotic materials, so we use it as a canvas for the natural beauty of a range of stunning scales. From rare and storied woods to hand-carved silver, from state-of-the-art hand-forged metal alloys to the finest hand-engraved artistry, the Monarch incorporates most of the materials and techniques that are the hallmark of William Henry’s creations.
Each Monarch includes either a titanium pocket clip or a lanyard system – the lanyard system also includes a leather ClipCase carrying system. Every piece is engraved with two distinct numbers – a serial number on the blade and limited edition number on the leading edge of the handle. The numbers, along with the details about the knife’s construction, are listed in the included Certificate of Authenticity.
