Custom Knives by Herbert Derr (H.K. Derr), are each individually 100% hand made from start to finish.
Derr started making knives in 1990 and in 1994, he became a full time knifemaker.
From the tip of the blade to the butt of the handle, Herb goes all the way in creating a unique, one of a kind custom knife every time. He also makes his own custom sheaths - usually using exotic animal skin inlays such as sting ray or ostritch skin - which are beautifully tanned and hand tooled.
Perhaps Derr's greatest talent is hand forging stunning, 2700 layer, oil quenched, Nickel/Carbon Damascus blades. These can be sharpened to a razors edge, and hold that edge for a great length of time. Herb calls his custom knives "functional art."
