  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.

  ~ Direct from the Maker ~

It has been over Three Years since I featured this unique Model from Herb Derr

  Here is a Rare Model from Herb, I have only had one or two knives over the years that feature such a Comfortable, Natural Shaped Warthog Ivory Handle.  This is Herb’s Personal Pistolero model ~ aptly named for its resemblance and the comfortable grip akin to a fine old Six Shooter!

The knife was made Herb’s Hand Forged, Rare Mosaic 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 high contrast Carbon Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers.

 One of the things that sets this knife apart is the generous Full Grip handle of South African Trophy Warthog Tusk that has beautiful natural color variation. Herb worked with the natural contouring of the handle to insure a comfortable fit. The Incredible Warthog Boar Tusk handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Buckeye Burl forward spacer which adds a splash of color to the knife.

The Top of the Guard has a Raised Thumb Recess for increased security.  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 Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has an Lizard Skin inlay along with Custom Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice full secure fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife. 

Don’t miss out on this one.
