“I love to bring in unusual, surprising collectible pieces that you won’t find in any other retail store and are appreciated by our clients who appreciate our collectible carvings, belts, buckles, jewelry and other accessories,” says Todd Rauchwerger, CEO of J.W. Cooper. “Every item we carry is a work of art and becomes a part of its owner, whether it’s a King Baby belt buckle, a piece of turquoise jewelry or a collectible carving crafted from fossilized walrus tusk, 50 million-year-old amber, Polish jet and sapphire. William Henry Studio collectible, one-of-a-kind knives exhibit that element of surprise we strongly value and that our clients seek, making William Henry Studio collectible knives, alongside its exquisite writing instruments and money clips, the perfect fit for our stores.”
Can I use it? Is it special? Is it the best in the world? Will it last? These are the types of questions J.W. Cooper’s male clientele will ask themselves. And with William Henry Studio’s creations, the answer to these questions is always yes.
“When I stepped into J.W. Cooper’s New York store, I knew immediately our knives, writing instruments and money clips needed to be there,” explains Dennis Epstein, vice president of sales and marketing for William Henry Studio. “A man who likes accessories of use and power will go to J.W. Cooper; we share the same type of customer. In addition, you rarely see stores designed primarily for men. J.W. Cooper’s stores in New York and Bal Harbor make a powerful statement -- like our knives, writing instruments and money clips -- and we are so pleased with this synergistic collaboration.”
Founded in 1997 by partners Matthew William Conable and Michael Henry Honack, William Henry Studio is revered today as the leading creator of the finest, collectible, American-made knives in the world. With founding partner and master knifemaker Matthew Conable at the helm of design, William Henry Studio collectible knives have become the benchmark for knifemaking.
In line with J.W. Cooper’s array of carvings and accessories, made from the highest quality and most interesting materials -- such as 10,000-year-old mammoth ivory, spiny oyster and the tooth of a prehistoric Megalodon -- William Henry Studio looks to rare, natural materials, such as Damascus steel, meteorite and koftgari, for its knives. Designed and built with unparalleled ingenuity by generations of master cutlers, William Henry Studio seamlessly integrates extraordinary materials and state-of-the-art alloys precision-machined to tolerances reserved for aerospace-level work. The final fit, finish, action and sharpness of each knife are achieved entirely by hand.
“We brought knifemaking back to an art form,” adds Epstein. “Getting a good quality tool is becoming very difficult. We went the opposite in our industry by creating knives on the ultra high-end spectrum. We don’t have a competitor; no one else is making a product to the level and quality of William Henry Studio.”
And the company has no intention of limiting itself to collectible knives. Within one year of its first unveiling of its writing instrument and money clip collections, William Henry Studio has become a tough competitor in the world of writing instruments and money clips, garnering top industry reviews and awards, as well as a newfound female audience.

Cooper on Saturday, December 19 for a special event introducing the William Henry Studio collection. The event will be held at J.W.
