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 Knife Shows and Gun Shows, 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 direct Dealer for Herb Derr
~ Direct from the Maker ~
Herb has not Forged any knives in many Months ~ this is one the Last of his knives I have In Stock
I am very excited to feature this Gorgeous Trailing Point Hunter from Herb
This special knife has Herb’s High Carbon Bird’s Eye Damascus that is over 2,500 layers thick and a gorgeous Stellar Sea Cow Rib Bone. This handle material was Thousands of Years in the making. This Fossilized Stellar Sea Cow Rib handle has Rich color and Beautiful natural Grain.
HERE is a link to some information on the extinct Stellar Sea Cow. The Handle material is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Spalted Maple spacer for color.
On this knife Herb has also added some Vine Filework on the Spine which looks great but has a dual purpose of also replacing Thumb Ridges for grip enhancement.
This is a truly great piece from Herb and it would be among the best of any Derr or Damascus Collection.
The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has an Ostrich 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.
