    Um, yeah, I have to agree. William Henry knives are extremely pricey. (usually $2,000+). Beautiful knife though.

    William Henry knives can be had for sub 500 dollars. they are definitely expensive but very awesome knives. I saw one sell for 300 dollars the other day. It just depends on the model.

    edited saw the budget now.

    Get on blade forums and go to the exchange. buying used can save you a good bit of money. If not maybe get on benchmade's sight and design him a custom griptillian knife. you can get stuff put on the blade pick shapes and colors. it would be a very personal knife.

    If your going to buy something new though definitely get with brad he usually has the best prices.

    I have a few William Henry knives in stock, but they are in the $700 to $800 price range. These are very limited editions with only 25 made (model B12-Mediterranean) on the one model, and it normally sells for around $1400 and the other model that I have, only 100 were made (model B-12- Jackson Creek) and it sells normally for $1350.00.

    I was told once that you had to own a Rolex watch in order to be able to own a William Henry knife.

    Will this simply be a collector item for your dad or will he be using it as well?

    The reason I ask is damascus steel has such a range of quality, a lower grade damascus steel will not have a good hardness rating or hold an edge very well. A nice damascus steel can have similar characteristics to a high grade knife blade with a 58-60 HRC and good edge retention. So if he is going to use it regularly maybe a nice benchmade blue class is in order. I bet Brad could get you a great price. Products

    If he is not going to use it I would think you would want a real collector item and not something that just looks cool. Something he could maybe give to your son someday and could become a family heirloom. A benchmade Gold class? I bet Brad could get pretty close to your price on a few of these (Others maybe not) Products

    Talk to Brad about prices I bet he can beat any price on the website by a long shot.

    Im a little partial to BM and it doesnt have to be but that is just something to think about.

    He doesn't know much about knives nor would he probably use it much. Probably just use it occasionally or to have to pull out of his pocket to show his buddies when they come over to play pool. So this knife is more for aesthetic appeal. He makes sure the waterworks in his gated community in
    Florida is operating as it should, so his job doesn't require a knife on the job at all times. So that's why I'm going more for a wow look than a solid utilitarian approach. I can always get him a good EDC knife, but I'm not sure he worry's much about that like you or I may.

    Cool thread... my dad was in the Corps in the 70's and was issued a folding pocket knife. He's been out of the Corps for a long time, but he had kept that knife with him for 30+ years. I remember playing with it as a kid... and at his current job he used the knife and stored it in a small tool bag.

    Well unfortunately someone stole that tool bag 2 weeks ago. He had hundreds of dollars worth of tools in that bag, but when he was telling me the story, he mentioned that knife specifically and while my dad would never say it, I could tell that it bothered him that it was gone. Mind you, my dad isn't a knife expert (nore am I for that matter) and isn't the type to jump on the internet to try and replace it.

    Lucky for him I am A little searching the internet (and my memory bank) and I think I found it. Its a Camillus TL-29. I already have one on the way and I can't wait to see his face when he opens it up at Thanksgiving!

    Sorry for the thread jack... but I couldn't help but share.

    there is a william henry auto in the cove on USN right now with leather sheath and everything for 250 bucks. It's a smaller knife but very cool. has a jewel for the release.

    Check ebay if the william henry is really what your looking for. there is a nice one going for 260 right now. that's not to far out of your budget. One has a mother of pearl handles for 240. very nice looking blade.
