Gil Hibben Hibben Sub Hilt Assault Bowie
This is a great sub-hilt combat knife from United Cutlery and designed by the infamous Gil Hibben. It has a Micarta handle that really fits your hand nicely- at least it fits mine which is a medium size. The price is exceptional especially when you compare it to the Cold Steel Black Bear model, although that one is of a much finer quality, made in Japan with San Mai steel. The look is similar, but the similarity doesn’t extend much further. Smith and Wesson came out with a monster subhilt recently that even has this one beat on price, although it doesn’t have Gil Hibben‘s sense of design. This Gil Hibben one is affordable and has a nice, leather sheath included. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
