  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 Gun & Knife Shows, most 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 Dealer for Herb Derr 

  ~ Direct from the Maker from the Blade 2019 ~ 

  Here is a Massive Bullnose Skinner from Herb that has high contrast Sole Authorship Birds Eye Skinner Damascus.  This is a great looking knife knife with artistic attributes, but I guarantee it will perform as good as it looks.  

 Herb explained that his high contrast – High Carbon Damascus blades have over 2,500 layers. This one is Especially Striking due to the beautiful & intricate Birds Eye Pattern. This Big Blade is one of the Thickest that Herb has Forged for me ~ measuring a Whopping .180 Thick!

 The knife has a comfortable Full Grip handle Crafted from an Extra Large South African Gemsbok Horn.

This knife is Sized for a Large to XLarge Grip, or would work well if you wear gloves. 

Gemsbok Horn is very dense and has beautiful Natural Ridges that work alternately as Finger Grooves HERE  is a link to some information on this majestic animal. 

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

The handle is flanked by Nickel Silver Spacers and a Stabilized Curly Maple forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle. 

The Heavy Leather RH Leather Belt sheath has the Skin of an African Crocodile as the inlay.  

Don’t miss out on this one.
