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 ~
Here is a unique, innovative creation from Herb ~ a knife that is easily carried, quickly accessible and a wonderful way to showcase Herb’s work to those you meet.
Herb explained that his high contrast Birds Eye Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. The knife has a Three Finger Grip handle of Fossilized Stellar Sea Cow Rib Bone ~ this material is very dense and has beautiful Natural deposits of color.
This handle material was Thousands of Years in the making. HERE is a link to some information on the Extinct Stellar Sea Cow.
The Single Piece of Fossilized Material is flanked by a Nickel Silver Spacer and a Stabilized Iron Wood forward spacer which compliments the handle very well. On this knife Herb has expertly Contoured the Double Nickel Silver Guard for a Secure grip.
The Beautiful Damascus Dagger Blade is approx 1/8″ Thick and has enough cutting edge for most any daily cutting chore. Marked on the Tang with Herb’s Makers Mark.
The Heavy Leather Neck sheath has an Amazing Feature – Herb has embedded a Strong Rare Earth Magnet inside the back of the sheath!
The knife rides deeply enough inside the Thick Leather sheath so that the cutting edge is completely covered.
The Rare Earth Magnet is a unique enhancement. Plenty of MilSpec Paracord and a Slide adjuster are included.
Great package and really fun to own, wear and use!
I have Only One!
