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 2019 ~
Here is a superb Straight Backed Personal from Herb that has his Rare Hand Forged High contrast Random Pattern Damascus.
Herb explained that his High Constrast Damascus blades often have over 2,500 layers.
The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle of Fossilized Oosic that has some of the best natural color variation that I have ever seen on this material. Best for a Small to Medium Sized Grip.
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!
The handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Maple Burl forward spacer for color. This example also has a Subtle Upper Thumb Recess built into the Guard for extra Security.
This knife has a remarkable flow to the design and perfectly matched materials. A superb looking knife with artistic attributes that will perform as good as it looks.
The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has a thick Ostrich Leg Skin inlay along with Custom Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife.
Don’t miss out on this one.
