Limited Edition B11 Swerve Knife


The Persian ‘Swerve’ features a mesmerizing frame in 24K gold Koftgari (the ancient Indian technique of inlaying gold and/or sterling silver in tool-steel), inlaid with a stunning piece of 10,000 year-old fossil woolly mammoth tooth. The blade is ‘Wave’ damascus steel with a core in extra-strong VG-10 steel; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with citrine gemstones. The Persian is an elegant synthesis of dramatic lines, graceful curves, and exquisite materials. A bold interpretation of a timeless design, the ‘Swerve’ features the exotic materials, and superlative metals that are the hallmark of William Henry’s collections; a timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime.

Persian Series Knives:
Dramatic lines, graceful curves, and exquisite materials all find harmony in this exotic design. The Persian is a return to an early William Henry model, re-designed from the ground up, keeping the dramatic upswept curve of the blade. The B11 Persian is a bold interpretation of a timeless icon of cutlery. We use the Persian to showcase our extraordinary range of natural materials: the frames range from aerospace grade titanium to damascus and mokume gane; the scales range from exotic woods to mother of pearl, black lip pearl, and fossil mammoth tooth and bone.

Each Persian folder includes a bail, braided leather lanyard, and leather ClipCase for safe and secure carry in the pocket or purse. Every knife 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.
