William Henry Knives

William Henry Knives @ New Graham Knives

William Henry is an American luxury brand devoted to the vision of designing and building superlative functional jewelry crafting collections that integrate form and function into exquisite and unique pieces that belong to a category all their own.  Designer and entrepreneur Matt Conable founded the company in 1997 and is now the sole owner. The brand was established creating exclusive and award-winning pocket knives, effectively transforming the archetype of all tools into a superb piece of functional jewelry for men. Today’s collections include writing instruments, money clips, cuff links, golf tools, and William Henry has proudly grown to become one of the most admired and sought after brands in the world of luxury for men.

The seamless integration of classic natural materials, precious metals & gemstones, and state-of-the-art alloys is a hallmark of William Henry’s work.

But what makes this brand so distinctive is that it has proudly retained the aura and feel of an artisan workshop, where every piece is designed and created exclusively in small, limited, often unique editions. “For many premium watch brands, an edition of 1,000 numbered pieces might be an ‘exclusive’ offering” – says Matt Conable. “At William Henry, that would be the largest and least exclusive offering in our history.”

Hand-forged tapestries in metal, chisel carved silver, hand-burnished gold inlay, fine hand engraving, exotic materials, and inlaid gemstones are interwoven into stunning pieces of timeless stature. The distinctive character of the artistry and the personality of the materials make this brand’s every creation truly unique. No two pieces are alike.

“I like the idea that William Henry’s creations strike a personal chord in our clients” – says Conable.  “Every now and then, it is important to invest in objects that are personal, immediately useful, yet timeless in their appeal and relevance – these rare pieces are imbued with the personality of their owners, and become part of their living legacy”.

Matt Conable founded the company with the belief that he could create objects he could be proud of and that would stand the test of time; and that he could take care of people along the way, building a culture more akin to a family than a corporation, a studio than a factory.  That’s the dream that started William Henry, and that’s the dream we live today.

Designed to be used with TUF-CLOTH™ and MARINE TUF-CLOTH™ it makes difficult to access areas of firearms and equipment easier to protect. TUF-GLIDE™ should be used on all types of metal finishes, and woods for protection and lubrication. It makes oil and silicone products obsolete.
Sentry uses state-of-the-art dry film technology to make TUF-GLIDE™ a superior, long-lasting product for both rust protection and lubrication. Sentry developed a proprietary formula of dry film rust inhibitors and lubricants which have a natural affinity for metals. Pure mineral spirits is the carrier, so TUF-GLIDE™ is fast drying and easy to apply.

TUF-GLIDE™ penetrates hard to access areas and displaces water. It provides cleaning, rust protection and lubrication. Pure mineral spirits carries the active ingredients and provides cleaning action. It evaporates, and Sentry’s proprietary ingredients bond to the surface; this bonding ensures long-lasting effectiveness.
TUF-GLIDES’ waterproof protection will not wash off and won’t thicken in the cold (even down to -40°F/-40°C).

It will not attract dirt like oil-based products, nor is it a slippery film like silicone. It is great to use on wood and is safe for most plastics.

Knife care products: Militec-1

Militec-1
Militec-1 metal conditioner

https://newgraham.com/MiliTec-1-Oil-1oz-MILITEC1OZ/

Militec-1 is our favorite metal conditioner / oil here at New Graham. Great for knives and firearms. Below is some usefull information about Militec-1.

CHARACTERISTICS: MILITEC-1 Synthetic Metal Conditioner has the unique ability to create a complex, molecular compound within the surface of heated gunmetal. This causes MILITEC-1 to become part of the metal, not merely a temporary coating or a boundary film. There are two main characteristics of this safe new compound. First, it seals and conditions the metal by stiffening (not hardening) the metal surface. Second, it makes the gunmetal self-lubricating under all environmental conditions.

SELF-LUBRICATION: After a complete application, a MILITEC-1 conditioned firearm is self-lubricating. Self-lubrication gives the firearm’s gunmetal the dry lubricity that is required for sustained fire under all environmental conditions. If exposure to dust, sand, or extreme cold is a concern, all excess MILITEC-1 must be wiped away, leaving the firearm’s surface metal clean, dry, and constantly lubricated. Please note: Complete corrosion protection and self-lubrication is attained only after both Step One and Step Two (below) are completed.

PREPARATION: To take full advantage of MILITEC-1’s unique properties, start with a clean firearm. Although MILITEC-1 contains a mild detergent that will help with subsequent cleaning, there are no solvents or other hazardous materials in MILITEC-1, so it cannot remove old caked-on fouling and build-up from other lubes. Thus, if a firearm is dirty, you must clean it with a solvent before you proceed. Normal field strip cleaning should be perfectly adequate. If possible, remove the hand grips, clean and prepare.

INITIAL TREATMENT: Applying MILITEC-1 to a firearm for the first time is a two-step process: (1) Application and (2) Firing.

STEP ONE: APPLICATION. Now that the firearm is clean and dry, apply a light film of MILITEC-1 to all surfaces, including the bore. Burnish/polish MILITEC-1 into exterior surfaces by rubbing rapidly using a cloth lightly dampened with MILITEC-1. Sparingly apply drops into the action, concentrating on springs, moving parts and metal-to-metal contact areas. If your firearm has a magazine, be sure to apply MILITEC-1 both inside and out. Leave a very light film of MILITEC-1 on all surfaces during reassembly. Now proceed to Step Two.

STEP TWO: FIRING. Once you fire your weapon enough times to reach operating temperatures, the heat and friction will activate MILITEC-1, strengthening the bonding process that was started in Step One. While firing, MILITEC-1 creates a self-lubricating, water-repelling, dry compound within the gunmetal.

Additional Application Instructions: If Step Two is not immediately possible, consider applying low heat to the firearm to facilitate the bonding process until you can perform Step Two. In field conditions, place your lubed firearm in the sun underneath black plastic or a similar ventilated heat source for at least two hours. Alternatively, you may use a heat gun, hairdryer, burnishing or polishing tool to heat the gunmetal. In heat controlled environments, do not exceed 150° F (65° C). In all applications that require heat to condition the firearm, always insure proper ventilation and wear protective clothing. Please consult our MSDS for additional information.

ULTIMATE PROTECTION: To maximize the effects of MILITEC-1, repeat Step One and Step Two while the firearm is still hot from the first firing session. MILITEC-1’s impregnated molecular bond intensifies during the next 2-3 applications on hot gunmetal. MILITEC-1 has now become a physical part of the gunmetal.

Another new Boker, the Kwaiken Folder

The Boker Kwaiken folder at New Graham Knives.com

Introducing the Kwaiken Folder by Boker, designed by knife maker Lucas Burnley from New Mexico, was created after a long period of development. Burnley, whose most popular model is a fixed blade Kwaiken, wanted to translate his typically slim concept into a folding knife without drastically changing the proportions. The result is a design which has fascinated us at first glance. The clear lines and the slender knife which houses the entire blade in the closed position are absolutely unique. Until recently, the so-called duplex grind, with its two different grinding planes, was mainly reserved for expensive custom knives. The Kwaiken Duplex offers this unique grind as a production knife, and is a real treat for the many fans of this series.

–Opening aid: Flipper
–Designer: Lucas Burnley
–Blade length: 3.5 in

Boker / Marlowe Squail Jr.

The Boker Plus Squail Junior pocket knife is a prime example for how much a different size of a knife can change its look. While the normal Squail with its 4″ blade is more of a tactical knife, the Squail Junior feels light and elegant, which classifies it as more of a gentlemen’s folding knife. Without being delicate, the Squail Junior is sturdy enough to master any cutting chore in everyday use. Featuring a sturdy liner lock mechanism, titanium bolsters and a VG-10 blade for outstanding edge retention. Includes pocket clip.
