William Henry Knives Steampunk Viperfish Engraving


Recommended Posts


Seems like forever I've been working on a major project for William Henry Studios - a steampunk suite for one of their B12 model folding knives. Here’s the beauty shot. The details: William Henry model B12 scales, 4 inches long 416 stainless steel, hand engraved with 24 karat gold and copper inlays.

Lots of fun, I learned a lot and sharpened my technique. Look for more steampunk themes in the near future!


You can see a goodly number of in-progress photos at my blog, and my Instagram and Facebook pages.

Thanks for looking!

Wow!! Stunning work!!!thumbup.gif

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft

Very cool! I really like the blending of colors on some of the spines and fangs

I have always thought that one man of tolerable abilities may work great changes, and accomplish great affairs among mankind, if he first forms a good plan....

Sometimes I see stuff on here that is beautiful, but I know that I could some day achieve if I work at improving my skills. There are other days that I see things so stunning that while I understand the steps involved, I don't dare to dream of matching the craftsmanship necessary to pull it off.


Then there are days I see something that so blows my mind that I don't have any understanding of how it was done. This is one of those days...


...absolutely beautiful.

I can't imagine that much fine detail work. It would make me explode.


I really love the tentacles made from bicycle/motorcycle chain (don't know the technical name).


you have done well.

I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” E. V. Debs

Crazy cool. Wow. Your steampunk stuff always makes my jaw drop. Well done, man.




"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelt

I am at a loss for words... well done man.
