Description

HERB DERR

  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 recent NYCKS 2014

  Here is a great Big Game Drop Point Hunter from Herb that has high contrast Sole Authorship Ladder Back 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 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 knife is Sized for a Med to Large Grip, or would work well if you wear gloves.

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. 

The handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Spalted Maple forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle.

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 Heavy Leather RH Leather Belt sheath has the Skin of an African Ostrich Skin as the inlay.
