This knife was designed by master knife maker Gil Hibben, an avid hunter and fisherman. His firsthand experience as an Alaskan hunting guide contributed to the design of this custom knife, which is used and fully endorsed by the prestigious Alaska Professional Hunters Association. It has a 6 7/8" laser-etched, 420J2 stainless steel blade with the Hibben Knives logo and Alaska Professional Hunters Association Seal etched on it and a black Micarta handle. A premium quality, genuine leather sheath is included.
I think that this fine fixed blade is Gil's finest design! Built like a brick craphouse yet able to be finessed into doing some skinning. Beautiful, practical, and fits your hand like a glove! GREAT knife!
This is absolutely built to last generations. Very thick full tang and gorgeous. Detail to handle is perfect and feels like it was designed around my xl hands.
I just got this and I am so impressed with this knife. The craftsmanship just shines from design to finish. They took the time to insure every detail was finished. Extremely sharp out of the box. This knife fits my hand perfectly.. It is super comfortable to work with. This is a complete knife. You can do large work and detail all with one knife.
That Knife definitely does feel like it belongs in your hand because of the curvature and how I can hold it and then open my hand and spread my fingers allowing my index and pinky finger(s) to latch on and hold the knife comfortably in my hand and it is quite a chopper with all that heftiness on it, it is a well built Knife!!!
Mine arrived in superb condition, razor sharp and needed no real issues addressed. It is HUGE on your belt. HUGE. I must say I love it. May not use it for everyday carry, but then again maybe I will, it's a beast! Very pleased with this one.
I bought this blade some time ago and I was happy right away. I'm not one to buy a knife for display (that's what coins are for) but to use, and I've put this to some use with confidence. For the price, it's not supposed to be a Bugatti, but meant to get dirty and used. I've developed some snobbiness in that I'm not a fan of leather sheaths, but that's just being picky. If I had to, I could find a more suitable one or get it made. But this is a hefty and tough knife, and nice for the price.
The knife itself is pretty to look at, but I would not put my life in its hands. 420 should not be a viable option when choosing a survival blade. Only exception for me is the Gerber strongarm. This blade is heavy and just not meant to be a true survival blade. I'm pretty sure Dave Canterbury would laugh if you gave it to him to use on a survival trip, but I'm sure he could make it work. I don't trust this blade and won't pack it for a trip. If you want a true survival knife go get a bk2/7/9 or a TOPS even look at esee or condor. If you want to hang this on your wall go for it, but don't pack it.
Love the knife had mine for over a year now but my sheath's strap has broken so I got a new one for it but the knife is amazing
Just got my Hibben Alaska Survival Knife what a great knife. This knife is built to last, great job in manufacturing, and a beautiful finished product. I am an avid outdoors man and will be putting this knife through it's pace's. Looking forward to my next Gil Hibben purchase. Thanks BudK!
This knifeGreat knife my first knife for hunting bear and last of all. I take it with me on my outdoor usr.,also dedicate the knife to riverbabe and I in our relationship .
Every Hibben knife that I buy seems to be better than the previous one. This knife was no exception. It is a "beast" and it would take on any task. I would recommend this knife to everyone.
You can tell by its weight alone that this knife can do some damage, even right out of the box, it comes well sharpened.The sheath is just as sturdy as the knife itself, and it is well tailored for it. Great work, beautiful product!
This is one great knife. Have owned several Hibben knives through the years. This one is really beautiful and sturdy and ominous looking and useful. Wish handle was more easy to grip when might be wet. Overall very glad I have one.
This knife is beautiful. Solid . Sharp as hell . The balance and grip make it feel like this will stay in your hand till the Grim Reaper takes you. The sheath is good quality also. I could sell this knife to guys at my work tommorrow for $100.
This is one beauty of a knife to bad it is made in china but very nice made the mistake from buying it from some other company paid double what united cutlery is selling it for like it so much I ordered another one since its cheaper hear cost wise NOT QUALITY !!!!!!!!!!
WONDERFULL KNIFE..DEBATED FOR MONTHS IF I SHOULD PURCHASE IT, FINALLY DID ,RECIEVED IT ,COULD NOT FIND A SINGLE FLAW. COMPLETELY BALLANCED..NO B/S IVE PAYED ALOT FOR OTHER KNIVES.THAT WOULDNT EVEN STAND UP TO THIS PARTIQULAR KNIFE ,I WAS IN THE MARINE CORE FOR 4 YEARS,AND WOULD RECOMEND THIS TO ALL MY MARINE BROTHERS.''SEMPER FI''
and it won't be my last! Great balance, feels great in the hand, and reeks of strength. If I want to keep this perfect, I'll just have to buy another because this is not a knife for the collection. It practically begs to be used. It came sharp, cuts paper smoothly but didn't shave my arm hair. There is no reflection off the edge.
A great knife! Workmanship top notch and great materials. It should last several lifetimes.
THIS IS MY 9TH GIL HIBBED KNIFE, I'VE ALWAYS BEEN DRAWN TO HIS SENSE OF STYLE, I THINK ALL OF HIS KNIVES ARE A WORK OF ART. I'M IN THE PROCESS OF MAKING A GLASS TOPPED COFFEE TABLE TO DISPLAY THEM IN MY GUN ROOM. BUT ASIDE FROM BEING A DISPLAY ITEM FOR ME, IT IS WELL BALANCED AND NICELY MADE.....
Gil Hibben hit it out of the park on this knife. Out of the box supper sharp. I love this knife and is one of my favorites.
Okay, I'll be one to admit that knives (or blades in general) are usually priced as low as 'United Cutlery' and others are more than likely to be laughed at by snobby hunters and 'knife experts', and I also know that gil hibben merely allowed this to be designed by some Chinese knifemaking factory, (The real version he makes of this knife is higher quality, but costs a bunch) but even after all of that, this knife simply rocks. Seriously, I've bought a LOT of weapons and most of them were under $50, so I was a bit scared when I bought a simple foot-long knife for that much, but the second I held this knife, I knew it far surpassed every single knife and sword I own. It is 100%full tang, has a great wood finish handle that fits wonderfully in either hand. The blade is incredibly durable and has that fish-head tip that could stab through just about anything. It's appropriately heavy, and balanced I'm a way that makes it so versatile for just about anything you could need with a knife. Bottom line: great stabbing, stationary chopping, all other forms of cutting, all with a great design, blade, handle and even a great sheath. The only thing getting between me and usuing this knife for anything, is I don't wanna disrupt it's beauty.
This is one of my favorite knives. Very well made. A joy to hold. This is the one I would carry if everything went bad.
i got this knife ealier this month and it came razor sharp fits my hand like a glove and is heavier than i expected all in all a great knife
very nice knife ! i have carried a knife since i was 6 this is a very nice addition to my collection .it has become my new every day carry . little heavy but looks great and is very functional.its the smallest hibben i have so you know ive gotta show it off.
This is one Serious Blade! Right out of the box it would totally shave a swath of hair right off the top of my forearm to test the razor sharpness. Handle is very heavy duty and grip "wise" if not a bit tight quartered. This is not the blade to flip to a reverse grip mid stream but handles well if reverse grip is used from the start. The thickness and overall size of this blade belies the fact that the point is also very very sharp which is often not seen with a lot of large thick and wide blades. So this one is good for either thrusting to the hilt (shudder to think) or to lop off an incoming threat, and I mean take it off in one motion. As an overall camp and survival knife I would definitely feel comfortable with it even without a sawback. As a fighter, whew! Sure wouldn't want to face this one. A total winner for the price as well. Well done by Master Bladesmith Gil Hibben and one of the better offerings here at Kennesaw. I have my eyes on that new Bowie he has out now, the Legionaire Bowie!
I've had this knife for about a month now and I still absolutely love it! Mine was extremely sharp out of the box, it is very well balanced, not one single flaw, the handle fits perfect in my hands but my hand are fairly big. I had to make some modifications to the sheath but still gets the job done. In a nutshell GET THIS KNIFE!
This knife is awesome, fits your hand like it belongs there every groove fits every finger perfectly and it is very sharp. Recommend anyone to buy.
This blade shipped as advertised, not a flaw on it. Out of the box it was beautiful and VERY sharp. Tested it out on misc. stuff laying around my room,(oops!) slices very clean. Great knife, great purchase. Thanks budk!!
Positive: Wonderfully balanced blade. Fits the hand like it individually designed. High quality edge on arrival.
I bought the Alaskan Survival Knife from Hibben and it is beautiful. Mine came with a sharp edge already, I only applied minor sharpening to make razor sharp. Sturdy, comfortable grip. Beautiful handle. I have not had a chance to field test yet but from playing with it in my garage it gets my approval for sure. I know this is a bit much but i feel like I could kill a grizzly with this knife. I'm sure I can't but thats probably my lack of skill and not the knife's awesomeness.
Had the knife little over a year still one of my favorites but the sheath is garbage made a new one from real leather not that pressed crap other than that it's my go to blade I carry almost every place I go
great knife, got it a few months ago for christmas. Great sheath, I gave it a 4 because they didnt ship it in the sheath like i think they should have because the knife stabbed through the box and arrived with a broken tip. i was very disappointed. i had been looking forward to getting a hibben for a while and mine was broken. i think ill put an edge on the top because i want one there and it might fix the tip
