Gil Hibben Knives Classic 12" Bowie, Rosewood & Brass / Polished High Carbon Steel - Produced 1970
Out of stock
Gil Hibbens is a household name in knife making culture. Over the years Gil achieved fame as a premier custom knife maker and his work has been featured in, and on the covers of, national gun and knife magazines. He has established a whos-who following of collectors including John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Steve McQueen, Sylvester Stallone and Steven Segal or world leaders such as Israel's Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, the Sultan of Brunei and Vice-President Dan Quayle. You may have seen his work in Rambo, as the now iconic knife that Rambo exclusively uses.
This particular "knife" borderlines on short sword territory. A fully custom, one of a kind bowie made by Gil Hibbens himself during his stint in Alaska during 1970. Made from high carbon steel with a bowie style blade measuring 12" in length, with a hefty brass bolster, rosewood and composite handle and large brass pommel. This is truly an awesome blade to behold.
