Hibben knives

Gil Hibben lives and works in LaGrange, Kentucky. Gil grew up in Wyoming in the depression era. He began to make knives part time after he was discharged from the navy in 1956. His first Bowie knife was sold for $45. From this his long and famous career as a professional knife maker began. Over the years he achieved fame as a first class custom knife maker. His work has been featured in, and on the covers of national gun and knife magazines. In 1988 his work became even more well known when Sylvestor Stallone purchased several of Gils custom knives for his own collection. He was then asked to design the famous knife which was used in the move Rambo III. The reproduction of that knife has been the one of the biggest selling production knives ever produced, selling over 250,000 copies. Gils career as a custom knife maker has earned him fame and the respect of collectors worldwide, even taking him to Elvis Presleys home and the White House where one of the knives was entered into the presidential archives. Gil still makes knives in LaGrange and his brother Darryl who is also a renowned knife maker in his own right, lives and makes knifes nearby.
