Edition of 50 Pieces

The Cabernet ‘Leaf’ is a beautiful rollerball pen featuring a full body in 24K gold koftgari, titanium and carbon fiber. Koftgari is the ancient, and almost forgotten, Indian technique of inlaying gold and/or sterling silver in tool steel. The mesmerizing pattern on the ‘Leaf’ is created in one of the few Indian villages that still master this technique. The pocket clip is set with citrine. This beautiful writing instrument also features William Henry’s patent-pending Wavelock™ cap closure system – a ring of chromium steel balls embedded in a titanium ring which are captured in wave-shaped grooves in titanium collars for closed and post positions.
The Cabernet ‘Leaf’ is an extremely limited edition, a rare opportunity of owning one of the only 50 pieces available worldwide.

Description

KOFTGARI

Koftgari is the name for fine gold (and/or silver) patterns inlayed into parkerized steel. This ancient Indian technique, done entirely by hand, involves creating a very fine cross-hatch grid in the steel and then burnishing 24K gold (and/or silver) into a pattern that is bound by the cross-hatch. Parkerizing involves soaking the steel in a boiling solution of salts to oxidize the steel a deep brown/blue. Beautiful and timeless, koftgari is nearly a lost art.

William Henry’s koftgari comes from 2 small villages in India, home of the very few Indian artisans that still master this techique.

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. Several thousand carbon fibers are bundled together to form a tow, which may be used by itself or woven into a fabric.
Carbon fiber’s properties, such as high stiffness, high tensile strength, low weight, high chemical resistance, high temperature tolerance and low thermal expansion, make them very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, competition sports. William Henry uses the highest grade, and beautifully textured carbon fiber for its collections of jewelry, knives, money clips and cufflinks.

CITRINE

Citrine is a variety of quartz whose color ranges from a pale yellow to brown due to ferric impurities.
The name is derived from Latin citrina which means “yellow” and is also the origin of the word “citron.” Sometimes citrine and amethyst can be found together in the same crystal, which is then referred to as ametrine.
