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 ECCKS 2011.
Of all the knives that I purchased from Herb at the Show this one is probably the nicest overall in materials and comfort. The knife has Herb’s Bird’s Eye Damascus which is over 1,200 layers thick. It has a unqiue Fileworked spine and an amazing blending of rare natural materials. The handle is made from 20,000 year old Fossilized Mammoth Bone with wonderful natural coloring and an oblong shape which Herb has expertly oriented to fit the hand.
The Walrus Jaw handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a gorgeous Stabilized Spalted Maple Burl spacer for color.
The Leather sheath has stippled 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.
