Limited Edition B05 Departure Knife
The Monarch ‘Departure’ features an elegant frame in hand-carved sterling silver by Lee Downey, inlaid with fossil coral. The blade is hand-forged ‘Hornets Nest’ damascus by Mike Norris; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with sapphire gem stones. 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 our exotic materials. The ‘Departure’ is the beautiful balance between elegance, function, modern and exotic materials.
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.
