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

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.

Gil Hibben is a knife maker well known for designing the knives used in Rambo III and Rambo IV. However, one of his first major contributions to the knife world was the Kenpo knife, a knife now used in the Kenpo long form VIII. A handmade version of this knife was given to both Ed Parker and Elvis Presley, fellow practitioners of Kenpo. The Karate Master is a classic reproduction of the Kenpo knife by United Cutlery which is being brought back due to popularity.
The shape and weight of the blade allow for excellent penetration, and the slant of the hilt allows it to be held with the thumb on pressed against the hilt. This method of holding the knife is much more stable and powerful than the common method, which results in the thumb pointing down.
