The Spearpoint ‘Forest Grove’ features a light and resilient frame in aerospace grade titanium, inlaid with a beautiful piece of orange spalted beech wood. The blade hand-forged 'Intrepid' Damascus steel by Chad Nichols. The one-hand button lock and the thumb stud are set with citrine gemstones. A remarkable design that gives you an instrument with a full-size secure grip, and a versatile deep-belly blade, the Spearpoint epitomizes William Henry’s core philosophy – that superlative function deserves to be elevated to superlative art. The ‘Forest Grove’ features some of the exotic materials and hand-forged metals that are the hallmark of William Henry's collections; a distinctive personality statement to be worn and used for a lifetime.
Beech is an important and widely-used hardwood. Its hardness, wear-resistance, strength, and excellent bending capabilities, make this hardwood a mainstay for many skilled woodworkers. Depending on soil conditions, Beech can grow to very large sizes.
The veneer tends to be slightly darker colored, as slicing the veneer usually requires the wood to be prepared with steam, which gives the wood the beautiful golden tone.
