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.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a direct Dealer for Herb Derr.
Direct from the Maker from the NYCKS 2011
Herb called me before the New York Custom Knife show and during our conversation he told me he was excited to be showing a new Damascus pattern at the Show. This is Herb’s new Feather Pattern Damascus.
This Damascus is over 1,200 layers thick. Herb has expertly forged the fine Pattern, it is repeated throughout the steel so it is the same on both sides.
The Fossilized Stellar Sea Cow handle has rich natural color and is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Spalted Maple spacer for color.
The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has an exotic Toad Skin inlay (the first time I have offered one of Herb’s sheaths with this kind of inlay) along with Custom Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife.
Don’t miss out on this one.
