Blade is good, stealth is garbage

The Blade is very heavy and sharp. Able to chop wood with it. However, the stealth fell apart. It is made of pressed leather. Stealth lasted about a year before starting to crumble.

The sheath sucks

The sheath is breaking apart on the belt Loop and I had to rewrap the handle.

Not to shabby

This is a great machete, its dull out the box (duh), and it has a big handle that might be uncomfortable for people with small hands. The cloth wrap will come off and it os NOT a gil hibben. It is a Licensed replica of a hibben design. This thing is a work horse non the less.

worth it

Got mine on one of the % sales. Strong heavy but only some of it was sharp the rest of the edge was like a spoon. The rap was lame replaced it with 550 cord Me and Lansky will work on the edge. This WILL be a great blade.

Instant trust !

Heavy Strong elongated axe !! Love the heft of it ! I put it on an grinding wheel and ground it to a hook angle that is not only plenty sharp but will hold that edge quite a while! A good file will do the same job, just takes a little longer! This Monster will get the job done!! By the way, if you have to pay to get it sharp you don't belong out in the outdoors. You won't be able to last ! Better stay in that cozy townhouse!

My favorite blade!

I wanted this blade for a few years now and now that I finally got it, and I'd describe this primitive knife as a cross between a machete, cleaver, and a hatchet. The end product is a heavy and solid chunk of steel. In addition, you get a sleek leather sheath and Hibben's certificate of authenticity. The blade isn't the sharpest, but due to it's weight, it'll just crush anything that gets in it's way. This replica does the one Stallone used in the movie maximum justice, right down to the hammer marks and scuffs. Quite possibly the most favorite knife in my collection.

Nice Heavy Duty Machete

I got this machete on sale for $28 and I must say, it is my favorite machete. Its a bid shorter than I expected but is definitely thick and heavy. Seems great for chopping. The sheath is nice quality and fits well. I have 2 complaints about this knife though. One would be the handle wrap is some kind of cheap fabric, and two would be the condition I received it in. Due to the hot weather, the foam from inside the box actually melted onto the handle and will not come off so one side of the handle is solid white. Mine also came with a bit of rust on it as well. Other than that though, this is a great machete even for double what I paid.

"Solid and Hefty, But no edge"

Have looked at this for a while now. Finally decided to take the plunge and get it. It is strong and solid, very strong quality steel. The finish looks amazing and this is the first piece i got the customized 3 letter thing. I really do like it, i would say for the money if you are looking for similar items why not. I think it has collectors value. Although neither of these things i'm about to mention would deter me from buying it all over again i wanted to note that mine game worse than extremely dull. It had no edge whatsoever. it more resembled a grinded flat edge or cut out of stock metal. Even so, i actually don't mind at all. I get to put my own edge on it, its going to take a lot of work but i want to use this as a hatchet/wood working replacement. The way mine came allows me to remove as much metal as i want and i can get the wt appropriate for me. The 2nd slight downfall is the handle is very tall, comfortably thick and well wrapped with a comfortable leather band, but i have small to medium hands and i can tell if i don't reduce some material in the height of the handle it will get uncomfortable chopping against hardwood. This is ok still to me for similar reasons of being able to reduce metal there and maybe even add some grooves for fingers.

Rambo worthy

This is an extremely strong blade. It came with a little gunk on the handle, but came off right away. Takes a stronger arm to swing it continuously, but it hits amazingly hard and cuts deep.....thanks BUDK

Machete

I wanted this knife for my collection and when it arrived I was surprised as to how massive this knife was. Now i just have to keep on working on my Gil Hibben collection and I just hope the rest of the my knife collection will be as great as this machete. If anybody wants a great knife for a collection or to use for hunting you have to buy this knife and you can't beat the price.

Nice

I got this knife just yesterday.....I got to say this is one rock solid peice. It's heavy, thick, and just plainly a beast. It's got a good edge on it out of the box, sadly some Styrofoam mixed with the oil and I had to clean that out of the leather. Good thick sheath, it's a heavy blade, but all in all well worth it.

ALL THE HYPE THE BLADE IS DULL STUPID!!

I BOUGHT THIS KNIFE BECAUSE THE HYPE THAT IT WAS BAD-ASS AND WHILE IT LOOKS KOOL THE BLADE IS COMPLETELY DULL WHICH MEANS IT DOESN'T CUT AND YOU WILL NEED TO SPEND 7-10 BUCKS TO HAVE IT SHARPENED.. DISAPPOINTED WITH BUDK THAT THEY WOULD SELL SOMETHING THIS DULL... IF YOU BUY IT EXPECT TO HAVE IT SHARPENED MORE OF A NOVELTY THEN A REAL KNIFE.. SHAME!!! RAMBO WOULDNT BE DEAD OUTTA LUCK ..

GIL'S MACHETE

I've always wanted one of these units so when the price was very, very right I made my purchase. The peice arrive in a really quick fashion and was packaged very well. the machete proper is a handfull of material. It's heavy, in a substantial way, good I mean. Not much will stand up to blows from this piece. I've seen other reviews mostly indicating the "heft of this blade, my reaction to those statements are mixed. I my experience in the Adirondacks and wilderness, low impact adventures in the Rockies, This is a "taking care of business all-in-one tool". To me, and I consider myself a "Seasoned Woodsman and long and short pull camper" I equate this piece to the BroadSword of old. Not a slicing or piercing tool but one that will pummel anything in its path h. I'm glad to pack it wherever I trek. rd of o

Rambo Knife

This is a very sturdy knife machste. The big problem I have with it was it did not come sharpened. I'm going to have to sharpen it before it is combat ready. This knife is not for everyone. It is much heavier than a regular machete or parang. Overall, it is a sturdy piece of metal.

Great Blade

I have to say, I have not spent this much on a blade in a very long time. When I pulled it out of the box I didn't know what to say. Looked beat up and unfinished. Well I was unwilling to send it back as I waited for 5 days to get it, so I did my homework. I LOVED that RAMBO and so I read about this blades story on Hibbens' website. Turns out Stallone wanted the blade to look like this. Rough. Unpolished. Well it is all that, plus it looks like it was only meant for one thing...to kill. In short buy this blade for what it is. It is not razor sharp, but I can fix that should I choose. Also...I did alter the handle by removing the thin leather straps. It fist my hand better and I can swing this all day long now (matters not that it is VERY heavy for a blade) with abandon. Respectfully, Keston

Hibben disapointment

I am kinda obsessed with knives and machetes, I would highly recommend ANYTHING made or designed by Gil Hibben. How ever I was GREATLY LET DOWN by this machete. It is overly heavy the handle is too thick for comfort for working, the leather wrap for the hand "grip" is a joke as far as Hibben is concerned. It was Dull out of the box, and hard to bring to a good edge. It is called the Hibben IV, which is also a name used for the Hibben Combat machete, of similar design. (Which I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING, DONT WASTE MONEY ON THIS GET THE COMBAT MACHETE made my Hibben it is 20 x the tool this one pretends to be.

Gil hibben

You get what you pay for. Wished it was lighter but awesome. It wasn't as sharp. It is what it is. Will put the best edge I can on it and then use. Would I recommend it yes. This is a bone crusher with a work out. Thanks for asking will continue to purchase products, I have a passion for collecting cutting tools.
