  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.

The Thick Stag Handle on this knife is Incredible 

  Here is a Massive Sole Authorship Herb Derr Bullnose Skinner that has some of the best Hand Forged high contrast Birds Eye Damascus that I have seen.  This is a great looking 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 measures .155 Thick!

 This Herb Derr Bullnose Skinner has a Full Grip handle from a single MASSIVE piece of Sambar StagSince the embargo on the Exportation of Indian Sambar Stag a decade ago, a piece of this size and quality is Rare! 

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

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 Stabilized Spalted Maple forward spacer which adds a dash of contrast to the handle. 

 The Heavy Leather sheath has Boa Constrictor Skin as the inlay.

Don’t miss out on this one.
