I have been a Dealer for Herb Derr Custom knives for over a decade, long before I had a website I sold Herb’s knives at Knife Shows and Gun Shows, often to repeat Customers. Herb’s pieces are sole authorship ~ he forges his own Damascus, grinds his own blades, makes his own Leather Sheaths and still finds time to Teach courses at a Community College on how to make Damascus.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Herb Derr
~ Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2018 ~
I hand picked this one from Herb at the Show due to the Amazing Color and Tight Twist of the Hand Forge Damascus Blade.
This special knife has Herb’s NEW High Carbon Twist Pattern Damascus that is over 2,500 layers thick and a gorgeous Color left after Quenching of the Blade.
The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle of Fossilized Stellar Sea Cow Rib. This material is very dense and has beautiful Natural deposits of color ~ HERE is a link to some information on the extinct Stellar Sea Cow.
The Fossilized Bone is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a thick Stabilized Buckeye Burl spacer for color. This size Handle is best suited to a Medium to Large Grip.
On this knife Herb has also added some Vine Filework on the Spine which looks great but has a dual purpose of also replacing Thumb Ridges for grip enhancement.
A beautiful knife with some great handle material and a Blade that is extremely unique.
The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has an exotic Snake Skin inlay. The knife rides snug and deep to prevent loss.
Don’t miss out on this one.
