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.
William Henry Knives - Knife Reviews
William Henry knives are beautiful upscale knives which some may argue as not tactical, however some of their knives do cross over into the semi-tactical arena in their materials such as Carbon Fiber and Titanium handles and high-performance blade steels. William Henry is based in California and their knives are often considered semi-custom as all knives are hand assembled and much of the final finish is hand done.

This Westcliff model from William Henry Knives was the first of the newer button lock knives that I had ever owned from the Company. They were introduced around five years ago and replaced the Spearpoint/Lancet/Kestrel series of knives. This Westcliff has a wharncliffe shaped knife blade of S30V and a titanium handle.
This is one of a couple of William Henry knives that I have owned with a Mike Norris Raindrop Damascus blade. The pattern is simply beautiful, as is the knife. Entirely hand-finished in California, with the primary manufacturing also done by machine in California, these knives are the pinnacle of the production gentleman’s knife.
This was my first decorated William Henry knife that wasn’t just a typical base model. I had owned one of the T-10’s prior to this, and also a T-12 in Mother of Pearl. This model has the Snakewood scales, Mokume bolsters and 154CM blade. Titanium liners are annodized blue.
