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.

~ Direct from the Maker from the ECCKS 2017 ~
I simply cannot keep Herb’s knives In Stock for long, they are renowned for their performance and the price for the artistic quality of the knife just cannot be beat!
Here is a Rare Model from Herb with a Natural Shaped Warthog Tusk / Ivory Handle. This is Herb’s Personal Pistolero model ~ aptly named for its resemblance and the comfortable grip akin to a fine old Six Shooter!
The knife was made Herb’s Sole Authorship Raindrop Pattern 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 Birds Eye Carbon Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. Herb enhanced the natural contouring of the handle to help improve the fit.
The handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Redwood Burl forward spacer which adds a splash of color to the knife. Also, this one has a Subtle Double Nickel Silver Guard – Wonderful Secure Grip.
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.
One of the things that sets this knife apart is the generous Full Grip handle of South African Trophy Warthog Tusk that has beautiful natural color variation, reminds me of a pistol grip.
The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has a Sea Snake Skin inlay along with Custom Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice full secure fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife.
Don’t miss out on this one.
