William Henry
Dedicated to designing and building the finest tools possible, the William Henry Studio was founded in 1997 by partners Matthew William Conable and Michael Henry Honack. Since then, the studio has expanded from a modest one-man shop to a 20 person company that has established a new benchmark of quality and excellence in fine knives. They celebrated their 10th anniversary in 1997, which means that 2012 will allow them to celebrate their 15th anniversary as they continue to build on a legacy of exquisite craftsmanship that has gained them international accolades among connoisseurs of fine knives.

We at Andy's Jewelry are incredibly pleased to bring these exquisite tools to our customers in the Lafayette, LA area. The seamless integration of natural materials and state-of-the-art alloys is a trusted hallmark of William Henry's work — here there are neither shortcuts nor compromises, just exceptional quality. Every element is precision machined to tolerances reserved for aerospace level work and the final finish, fit, action, and sharpness of each knife is achieved completely by hand. This process is done by the irreplaceable craftsmanship developed by generations of master cutlers.

Each pocket knife William Henry makes is a distinctive, heirloom-quality testament to the ancient art of knife-making. Their knives take more over six months to produce, incorporating the work of more than 30 artisans across 800 individual operations. These tools are unmatched in performance for daily carry use and can be found amongst the finest collections all over the world.

This is the type of dedicated artisan jewelry, tools, and watches Andy's Jewelry is committed to bringing to you in the Lafayette, LA area. And you don't have to just take our word for it. The list of awards William Henry Studios has won, such as Town & Country Couture Design Award, is quite impressive itself. Especially when you consider that they've won certain awards, like the Investor/Collector Knife of the Year for Blade Magazine, many times over.

William Henry designs have been called "functional and edgy" by Int'l Watch Magazine. They've also been featured in periodicals such as Guitar Aficionado Magazine for their guitar money clip shows, which clearly demonstrates that they not only create masterful knives, but an impressive array of other high quality tools. Along these same lines, their Facebook page has a post about their D3 Fairway golf divot tool which "stands apart and above." It goes on to say that the "gorgeous golf tool is built with precision and passion, and works with the same comfort and style that has made WHS one of the most admired creators of functional jewelry in the world." This one statement easily encompasses the artistry, craftsmanship, and devotion that goes into every William Henry tool.
