Herb needs no introduction as most folks who know quality Custom fixed blades and unique Damascus have heard his name many times.
Direct from the Maker – beautiful Bird’s Eye High Carbon Damascus blade which has over 1,200 layers, with decorative Fileworked spine.
This is a medium Model with a handle made for a Med to Large grip. The handle is Fossilized Oosik – the Oosik (also known as baculum) is used for copulation and varies in size and shape by species. A very rare and unique material indeed.
This is the most colorful Oosik handle that I have purchased from Herb.
It is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Box Elder Burl spacer, these really accentuate the natural colors of the handle.
The handle shape has some curve to it and a slight drop going toward the rear which will help fill the palm. Very generous in length so even wearing gloves this knife will feel right!
The Heavy Leather sheath has a Snake Skin inlay and Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife. Don’t miss out on this one.
Check back often as I have more from Herb Derr that I will be listing.
