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 Knife Shows and Gun Shows, 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.

I was Herb’s first Customer at the Blade Show and I was able to pick the very best knives from his Table
This is a Rare Pattern from Herb, I have only had this Model Once before, many years ago. This is Herb’s New Gamblers Vest Bowie
This big knife has a nearly 3/16″ Thick blade crafted from Herb’s Hand Forged
Birds Eye Damascus which is over 2,500 layers thick.
Herb’s expert Heat Treat and Etch brings out the Incredible Pattern of the Forged Damascus layers very well.
Herb also added a Thick Buckeye Burl Spacer and some Custom Filework on the Spine of the blade.
This Hand Ground Blade has a Distal Taper and a Sharp “Persuader Tip” on the Spine
The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle of 20,000 Year Old Wooly Mammoth Bone that has some Beautiful natural color variation ~ best suited for a Med to Large Grip.
This knife has an Oval Nickel Silver Guard and a classic Long Bowie / Clip Point blade.
The Heavy Leather Belt sheath has an Python 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.
Herb’s knives are a Great Value with top quality materials. Toss a bottle of EDCi in with your Order to protect this beautiful Damascus Blade ~ HERE
