 Fort Henry Custom Knivesis proud to be a Direct Dealer for Herb Derr custom knives  

 This is a Rare Pattern from Herb ~ This is Herb’s Cowboy Bowie


Herb explained that his high contrast – High Carbon Birds Eye Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle molded from a Large Single piece of of Fossilized Stellar Sea Cow Rib Bone.  

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. 


This knife is Sized for a Med to Large Grip, or would work well if you wear gloves. The Blade of this Big Bowie is 1  1/2″ Wide!  The knife also has a Wide Oval Guard in front of the Stabilized Spalted Maple spacer. This is an amazing combination of materials.

On this knife Herb has also added some Vine Filework oin front of the Oval Guard. The Filework looks great but serves a dual purpose of also replacing Thumb Ridges for grip enhancement. 


  The Heavy Leather Belt sheath has an Exotic Sea Snake Skin inlay and it has a Removable Belt Loop so that the Sheath can also be carried in the Boot! Nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife. 


I love this combination on Herb’s knives.  Such a Great Value in top quality materials.   

Previously owned but never used, carried or sharpened!
