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 from the Blade Show 2021 ~
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 Random Pattern Damascus blades all have over 2,500 layers. The knife has a Full Four Finger Grip handle of Fossilized Oosic Bone. This material is very dense and has beautiful Natural deposits of color.
The Single Piece Oosic Bone handle has a Nickel Silver Spacer and a Spalted Oak forward spacer which compliments the handle very well. On this knife Herb has expertly Contoured the Nickel Silver Guard for a very Secure grip.
The Beautiful Damascus Wharncliff Blade is approx 1/8″ Thick and has enough cutting edge for any daily cutting chore.
The Thick Leather Neck sheath has an Amazing Feature – Herb has embedded a pair of Strong Rare Earth Magnets inside the sheath!
The Rare Earth Magnets are a unique enhancement. They holdthe knife very securely inside the sheath ~ even upside down! Plenty of MilSpec Paracord and a Slide adjuster are included.
Great package and really fun to own, wear and use! I have Only ONE!
