~ Just Received – Direct from the Maker ~
This is only the Second knife I have ever had from Herb with his New Frogs Hair Damascus
Here is a Rare Sole Authorship piece from Herb, it is a Stag Hunter that he has forged with his NEW Frog’s Hair Pattern Damascus. This is a knife with artistic attributes, but I guarantee it will perform as good as it looks.
Herb’s Hand Forged “Frog’s Hair” Damascus has an Extremely Fine pattern and is over 3,500 layers thick! This is a Forged Damascus pattern, not etched or engraved. The Mid Height Hollow Grind is impeccable and Herb’s Makers Mark is on the Tang near the Guard.
The knife has a Nickel Silver Guard with a Subtle Top Thumb Rest. The Dark Stabilized Curly Maple Spacer in front is a nice contrast to the Gorgeous Sambar Stag handle. This is an amazing piece of Stag ~ since the Embargo more than a decade ago on the Export of Sambar Stag from India ~ Fat, Gnarly Stag like this is long gone from today’s market.
Herb used the Natural Shape of this Gorgeous material to create a Full, Comfortable – Hand Filling Grip.
Herb also gave this blade some unique Filework on the Spine, this would do double duty as Thumb Ridges if you choke up on the blade.
This is a truly great piece from Herb and it would be among the best of any Derr or Damascus Collection.
The Heavy Leather Belt sheath has an Boa Constrictor Snake Skin inlay along with Custom Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife.
I love this combination on Herb’s knives. Such a Great Value in top quality materials.
