Description

HERB DERR

  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 from the recent Blade Show 2015

This is one of the Largest Hunters from Herb Derr that he makes ~ blades larger than this one will be his Bowie style knives! 

  Here is a great Big Game Drop Point Hunter from Herb that has high contrast Sole Authorship Raindrop Damascus.  This is a great looking knife knife with artistic attributes, but I guarantee it will perform as good as it looks.

 Herb explained that his Mosaic – High Carbon Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. Of the many Derr Damascus blades that I have sold, I can honestly say this knife has one of the Most Unique Patterns that I have seen!

The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle molded from a Large Single piece of of Fossilized Walrus Jaw Bone.  This knife is Sized for a Med to Large Grip, or would work well if you wear gloves.

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 for grip enhancement.

The handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Spalted Maple forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle. The Maple Spacer has Beautiful, Subtle Greens and Browns.

The Heavy Leather RH Leather Belt sheath has the Skin of an African Ostrich Skin as the inlay.
