Re-Release of the Gil Hibben Dragon Lord 1996 Annual Edition
United Cutlery re-releases one of the best selling knives of all time. The Dragon Lord Fantasy Knife was the 1996 Hibben Knives Annual Custom Design Series and was popular with collectors for many years. When it was released, KnifeCenter.com was the only place on the web that you could find it! In fact, we were the only web site selling production knives, swords, machetes or shaving products from 1995 through most of 1996 and we are still the best place for these products – of course, I am biased!
Back to this knife- it’s a beauty. Now made in China instead of the original Taiwan, the quality is every bit as good as the original.
Here is the information from United:
The Dragon Lord was built in remembrance of ancient dragons that once ruled the lands. Each classic knife offers an ABS imitation Chinese carving stone handle with a relief carved dragon scale texture. The dragon-like curves of the cast metal guard, sub hilt, and pommel feature a steel gray chrome finish while the 8 1/2″ 420 stainless steel blade is accentuated with dragon-wing curves and a cast winged dragon at the base of the blade. Includes leather sheath. 14 1/4″ overall. 8 1/2″ blade. Handcrafted in China.
