William Henry S07 Evolution G-10 Knife
The Evolution series of knives from William Henry are entry level luxury utility folders with a bit of tactical flair, with the shadow-boxed handles and G-10 handle material. The frames are stainless steel, and the William Henry logo is set in a globe, indicating it’s overseas origin. In the case of these Evolution folders, production took place in Japan. Not too shabby.
These Japanese made William Henry knives are made with quality VG-10 steel, and come exceptionally sharp out of the box. I have owned several different incarnations of the Evolution knives, and they are all very sharp and consistent in quality.
The shadow boxed handles on these models gives the knife a bit more design appeal, but in my opinion makes the knife feel less solid in the hand and a little less comfortable to hold. It actually makes it feel a bit cheaper when you are holding it to use. When you torque the knife a bit it does slip a bit on the lock, so the knife isn’t really designed for hard use.
These models come with a clip sheath which is really handy for EDC. These might be appropriate for EDC with a more dessed-up look, or casual khakis, but wouldn’t be out of place with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt either.
Overall, the S07 Evolution in G-10 is a great casual EDC for lighter work, just don’t put too much stress on it. Nice design and very classy grinds make a great choice for an entry level luxury utility folder.
