The William Henry B30 Gentac ‘Dark Waters’ features a light and resilient frame in aerospace grade titanium, inlaid with carbon fibre, and a titanium pocket clip. The blade is 'Jet Stream' damascus by Chad Nichols; the one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with spinel gemstones.


An exceptional design that offers rigorous performance in a sleek, comfortable knife, the Gentac is also the perfect canvas to showcase William Henry’s range of exotic materials and techniques. The ‘Dark Waters’ features some of the hi-tech materials and hand-forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a modern design for a timeless heirloom to be proudly worn and used for a lifetime before being handed-down to another generation.


HAND-FORGED DAMASCUS


Damascus steel was a term used by several Western cultures from the Medieval period onward to describe a type of steel created in India and used in swordmaking from about 300 BC to 1700 AD. These swords were characterized by distinctive patterns of banding and mottling reminiscent of flowing water. William Henry's damascus is made from several types of steel welded together to form a billet. William Henry damascus billets are forged with a minimum of 300 layers.


TITANIUM


Titanium is a low density, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including sea water, aqua regia and chlorine) metal with a silver color. William Henry use 6Al/4V, it is titanium with a little aluminum and vanadium added in for additional toughness and tensile strength.


CARBON FIBER


Carbon fiber is a material consisting of microscopic fibers composed mostly of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms are bonded together in crystals that are more or less aligned parallel to the long axis of the fiber. The crystal alignment gives the fiber high strength-to-volume ratio. William Henry uses the highest grade, and beautifully textured carbon fiber for its collections of jewelry, knives, money clips and cufflinks.


SPINEL


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 colour.
