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.
Fort Henry Custom Knives is proud to be a Dealer for Herb Derr
~ Direct from the Maker ~
This is a Perfect EDC sized model ~ a Practical / Tactical called the Cross Over. It features Herb’s Hand Forged, high contrast Birds Eye Pattern Damascus.
Herb explained that his high contrast Carbon Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. This knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle of Fossilized Stellar’s Sea Cow Rib Bone ~ HERE is a link to some information on the extinct Stellar Sea Cow. This material is very dense and has beautiful Natural deposits of color.
The handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Maple Burl forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle.
This example has a Double Guard, meaning the Top of the Nickel Silver Guard is Recessed to accept your Thumb, this adds a bit of extra security when using the knife.
On this knife Herb has also added some Vine Filework on almost the entire length of the Spine which looks great but serves a dual purpose of also replacing Thumb Ridges when using the blade for close up work.
All Herb’s knives are Sole Authorship and this great looking knife will perform as good as it looks.
The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has an exotic Lizard Skin 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.
