Herb needs no introduction as most folks who know quality Custom fixed blades and unique Damascus have heard his name many times.
Direct from the Maker at the 2009 BLADE Show. The most striking feature of this special knife is of course Herb’s Bullet Hole Damascus which is over 1,200 layers thick. What is not visible (email for pictures of these features) are things like the Fileworked spine, amazing handle contouring and the ever present immaculate attention to detail that Herb provides with every knife.
The Walrus Jaw handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Box Elder Burl spacer for color. The balance on this knife is just behind the Box Elder spacer. There is a slight upswept curve to the NS Guard. The Handle has a natural gentle curve that fits the hand so well, and Herb has contoured the sides for a better fit also.
The Leather sheath has stipple Ostrich Skin inlay and Tooling around the mouth of the Sheath. Nice snug fit and a wonderful compliment to the knife. Don’t miss out on this one.
Check back often as I have more from Herb Derr that I will be listing.
