  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 Derr Neck Knife

 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!
