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.

Here is a great Personal Drop Point Hunter from Herb that has high contrast Sole Authorship Random Patter Damascus. This is a great looking knife knife with artistic attributes, but I guarantee it will perform as good as it looks.
Herb explained that his high contrast – High Carbon “Birdseye” Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. This is a Gorgeous Example of Herb’s Hand Forged Damascus!
The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle molded from a Large Single piece of Fossilized Oosic Bone.
Oosic (also known as baculum) is a Bone that assists in copulation in a variety of very large cold water dwelling underwater species of animals. A very unique material that was thousands of years in the making!
This knife is Sized for a Medium to Large sized Grip, however, it would also work well if you wear gloves.
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 handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Spalted Maple forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle.
The Heavy Leather RH Leather Belt sheath has exotic Boa Constrictor Skin as the inlay.
Don’t miss out on this one.
