LOOKING SHARP William Henry Knives Photo courtesy of William Henry Knives. Any seasoned chef will tell you that a really fine knife set makes all the difference in the kitchen. Essential tools of the trade, good knives should not only dice and slice with ease, but also hold up after extensive use. William Henry, a studio based McMinnville, Oregon, designs and builds a variety of quality knives, from pocket to kitchen. The name is derived from the middle names of the founding partners, Matt William Conable and Michael Henry Honack. William Henry blends state of the art alloys, timeless natural materials, and extraordinary craftsmanship to elevate “superlative function to superlative art.” It’s no surprise their exquisite creations have earned them numerous industry awards and much media attention. The Maestro Set features five knives using 45 layer Damascus blades. The core steel (cutting edge) is made from super hard and sharp ZDP 189 – a new technology in blade steels, which literally has the knife world scratching their heads and asking – “how did they do this?” The new steel raises the performance bar so high it is beyond the reach of conventional cutlery manufacturers. Handles are cocobolo wood fitted with stainless bolsters all crafted in William Henry’s artisans’ studio in the heart of Oregon’s Pinot Noir region. Furnished with a maple storage/display rack, this five piece set is equally sharp to the eye as it is on the board. Retails for $2,950. Get yours at Thee Cutlery, 3200 Sepulveda Boulevard, Manhattan Beach. 310-545-5718. • D.E. 104 Luxury Life & Style September/October 2007
