Yup, Herman Knives are Art. They are also supposed to be knives. If I ever get the D2 Sliver that Tim agreed to make for me, I would let you all know if they are Real knives, or just pretty things to look at.
And yes, I do use knives I bought at KnifeArt, Nordic Knives, Arizona Custom knives, and Robertson Custom Cutlery. I use some of them shamelessly, enjoying their perfect symmetry in the comfort of my hand. And some of them get to cut stuff.
My new PJ Tomes mid-lock folder with a CPM-420V hand finished blade and pearl scales is truly wonderful and slids into my pocket every day. I bought it direct from PJ. And I love it as a knife, and as Art.
Paracelsus, still waiting to tell you more about Tim's knives
It won't be too long now until you'll be able to buy the "sliver" from us (Delta Z Knives) in production form under the trademark "DECO by Hermanª". The best part? The price will be a fraction of what Mr. Herman charges for a hand made one, making this knife design available to many of us who can't afford the custom version. We promise you great production quality when it is released.
Just curious, anyone interested in such a collaboration knife? Chime in so we'll know how many to make!
Hang in there!

I finally got to Tim's website the other day and was amazed. His blades are just beautiful! I'd love to find out how they work as well but that pipe dream is a while away. After I win Lotto I'll be flying my jet to many a custom maker to introduce myself and place orders. BarnZ I'd love to see a collaboration and I'd buy it as quick as I could. I'll have to quit giving Tim a hard time on Chat as, after seeing his website, his knives are awesome. Any good makers in Mexico? Pesos are a great exchange! Maybe someone down there makes a 'Sliver-o'?
1-have they been tested and approved by Cliff Stamp?
2-Has anyone done performance comparison tests between Tim's Sliver and Cold Steel's Trailmaker?
3-Is Tim Herman a real person or did PhilL create him on his computer so he could give out that neat trophy with the flexible gentleman on it?
4-Would Tim trade a knife for 2 ghillie suits?
How bout this? I know knives can be art, and I agree, but why aren't they ever in a museum? I see paintings..black background, 1 white dot and that is art. We need to get some knives and swords in museums! They are art too!
I agree with Allen, all knifemakers are Artists, they create something functional and sometimes beautiful out of nothing. I will say that not all knives nor all knifemalers can approach the level of artistic achievement of one of Tim's knives. Tim was an artist long before he made his first knife and I don't just mean a BS artist either.
I have had the chance to handle one of Tim's knives and they move just as pretty as they look.
Now, I've never actually heard of anyone using a Herman knife, but Tim assures me nobody has ever worn one out. Come to think of it I've never heard of anyone who actually owns a Herman knife, but then again I don't hang out with 'The Donald' or Bill Gates.
Barnaby, I can't wait to own a Herman/DeltaZ knife, because Tim said if you can match the action on one of his customs he'll kill himself. Not that I want that, but can you make him sweat just a little bit?
wow, i dont know what to say. thank you for that fantastic compliment.
thank you all for the compliments. i first and foremost do try to make the best and strongest knife possible. to design knives that feel good and look good, then get the best fits and finish i can do by hand. i dont own a buffer and finish every piece by hand.
after i have a strong, well built knife then i can make it pretty
para, when you get the d2 sliver i do hope you use it
taz, i do have one of my knives in a museum in tennessee. Larry Fuegen also has a knife in the smithsonian museum
