The Lancet 'Smoke' features a resilient frame and pocket clip in anodized, aerospace-grade titanium. The razor-sharp blade is in ZDP-189 steel. The one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are stainless steel. Sleek, elegant, refined, and comfortable in the hand and to the eye, the Lancet defines the essential gentleman’s folder in the modern world. The ‘Smoke’ features some of the hi-tech and forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a distinctive personality statement to be worn and used for a lifetime.
Titanium is a low density, strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant (including sea water, aqua regia and chlorine) metal with a silver color. It was discovered in Great Britain by William Gregor in 1791, and named by Martin Heinrich Klaproth for the Titans of Greek mythology. William Henry uses only aerospace-grade titanium alloy for our frames, clips, and micro-fasteners. Called 6Al/4V, it is titanium with a little aluminum and vanadium added in for additional toughness and tensile strength.
Smoky quartz is a grey, translucent variety of quartz. It ranges in clarity from almost complete transparency to a brownish-gray crystal that is almost opaque.
Smoky Quartz was known as a Stone of Power. To the ancient Druids, it was sacred and signified the potent dark power of Earth gods and goddesses.
