  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 ~    

  I hand picked this beautiful hunter from Herb’s Table at the last Show, it was one of only Two Knives that Herb had with Mammoth Bone Handles. This is an excellent Personal Sized Drop Point with a special 20,000 year old Woolly Mammoth Bone handle that is spectacular.

(Please excuse the Yellow Putty peeking out from behind the knife, this is just stuff I use to “pose” the knife)

  Herb’s Hand Forged – High Carbon Damascus is over 2,500 layers thick. This one has an Expert Etch that clearly shows the especially striking Birds Eye Steel Pattern.

The 20,000 year old Mammoth Bone has an amazing variety of natural colors due to the Minerals that the material absorbed over many Millenia while waiting to be discovered. 

The Bone is contoured into a comfortable Oval shape, it has Nickel Silver Spacers and a forward Stabilized Spalted Maple wood spacer for color.  

On this knife Herb has added Vine Filework on almost the entire length of the Spine which looks great but has a dual purpose of also replacing Thumb Ridges for grip enhancement. 

I guarantee that this special piece will Perform as Good as it Looks!  A Comfortable Hunter, Hand Made from very exotic materials.

  The Heavy Leather RH Belt sheath has an inlay of African Crocodile Skin inlay with custom Tooling around the mouth of the sheath. Beautiful exotic materials in this entire package!

 Don’t miss out on this one.
