This is what William Henry do. Amazing materials, simple and elegant design, exceptional craftsmanship. The Forge will wear as beautifully and sensibly in a 100 years as it does today. Offered in hand-forged and sculpted Mokume Gane with a sterling bail on a stainless chain.


Mokume gane was developed in the 1600s in Japan, allegedly by an Akita prefecture metalsmith named Denbei Shoami (1651 to 1728). He used the mokume gane technique to dress up samurai swords. The mokume gane technique involves fusing several layers of different metals, and artistically exposing sections of lower layers. The metal is often made to display a pattern that mimics wood grain. A variety of metals can be used to give different arrays of coloration. Layers of metal are pressed together and fused with heat. The forged layers are carved to expose lower layers and are then pressed again. The carving and pressing is repeated to develop the pattern.


Today, some of the finest mokume in the world is made here in the USA, and William Henry is proud to offer a range of this material on their collections. This mokume is made with copper, brass, and nickel silver in either a 45 or 89 layer billet, forged and patterned by hand.
