Herb needs no introduction as most folks who know quality Custom fixed blades and unique Damascus have heard his name many times.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Herb Derr
~ Direct from the Maker ~
Here is an excellent EDC Sized Hunter from Herb that has some Beautiful and Unique Handle material.
Herb’s Bird’s Eye Damascus has over 2,500 layers. With a wonderful Drop Point blade shape this great looking knife will perform as good as it looks.
If you look closely you can see the Individual Linear Grain and Color of Herb’s Hand Forged blade.
It has a unique Fileworked spine that also doubles as Thumb Ridges.
The handle is made from Fossilized Stellar Sea Cow Rib bone. HEREis a Link to more info about this Extinct Sea Mammal.
Herb has worked with the natural shape of the Fossil to narrow the handle near the Finger Guard but leave it plenty thick at the butt, very hand filling and comfortable. The Rib Bone has rich natural colors and intricate grain.
The Rib Bone handle is flanked by a Nickel Silver Spacer and a gorgeous Stabilized Maple Burl spacer for color.
The Leather sheath has an Ostrich Leg Skin inlay and Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. The Sheath has a nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife.
Don’t miss out on this Special one of a kind knife!
Well balanced, great materials and extremely comfortable.
