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 Gun & Knife Shows, most 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 Dealer for Herb Derr
~ Direct from the Maker from the Blade Show 2018 ~
Here is a Perfect EDC sized Clip Point Hunter from Herb that has his high contrast Sole Authorship Birds Eye Damascus. This is a great looking knife with artistic attributes, but I guarantee it will perform as good as it looks.
Herb explained that his high contrast Birds Eye Carbon Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers.
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 handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a gorgeous Stabilized Spalted Maple forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle.
On this knife Herb has also added some Vine Filework on almost the entire length of the Spine which looks great but serves a dual purpose of also replacing Thumb Ridges for grip enhancement.
The Heavy Leather RH Leather Belt sheath has African Ostrich Skin as the inlay.
Herb also added some Custom Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Deep, snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife.
Don’t miss out on this one.
