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 at the ECCKS – superb Bird’s Eye Damascus blade, this High Carbon Damascus has over 1,200 layers and will perform as well as it looks. The blade is a full 1 1/2" wide and provides plenty of belly for skinning. I did not picture it but the spine is almost completely Fileworked.
The handle is made of 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.
It is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Sapalted Maple Burl spacer, these really accentuate the natural colors of the handle. The full grip handle shape has been contoured with a slight swell toward the rear which fills the palm nicely. Generous in length so even wearing gloves this knife will feel right!
The Heavy Leather sheath has a Ostrich Leg 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.
