A Hibben I Can Carry
I have a large Gil Hibben collection and they are impressive but most of them are not made to be used. This knife is perfect for an unobtrusive EDC. I love the balance and the heft of it and the sheath is great. And it is built with more beauty in mind than awe at the size of it. I’ll have to get another one to carry though, cuz this first one is going in display!

A Gil Hibben Knife I Can Use!
I have a large collection of Gil Hibben knives and this is one of the only ones that I could carry and use every day. It’s also the only one with brass bolsters and mosaic pins, so it’s beautiful as well as functional. The sheath is well-made, good thickness, supple leather, probably needs waterproofing. It’s a real departure from the Rambo style knives that we usually see from United Cutlery.

Compact heft.
I am very pleased with this Gil Hibben knife. It is beefy. For those seeking to hike ultra-light, you'll want something lighter. But blade size, hand fit (normal) and heft are great for me. Thanks for delivering such  a great knife, Atlanta Cutlery. Cal

Interesting knife
I carry this guy lots. I can carry anything in Arkansas, It is heavy. It is classy,  it is a hollow grind. I like the swedge. It really is a little tank. Just know that the "pins"  are not the real ones custom makers use, Rather they are just covers that look like they run all the way through the handles. But what do you want for this price? It really is a great, very sharp useful knife. Again,heavy though.

A weighty Small Sheath Knife
This is a very well made, solid knife. Most of the weight is in the handle of this knife, unlike most other knives of this type that are neutrally balanced or blade heavy. I think that you'll like it!
