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.

~ 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 Twist Pattern Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. The knife has a Three Finger Grip handle of Maple Burl & Black Palm Wood ~ this material is very dense and has beautiful Natural Grain and color.
The Single Piece of Maple Burl is flanked by a Nickel Silver Spacer and a Stabilized Black Palm 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 on either side for most any daily cutting chore. Please note ~ this IS a Double Edged blade.
The Thick 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!
