I've always wanted one of these units so when the price was very, very right I made my purchase. The peice arrive in a really quick fashion and was packaged very well. the machete proper is a handfull of material. It's heavy, in a substantial way, good I mean. Not much will stand up to blows from this piece. I've seen other reviews mostly indicating the "heft of this blade, my reaction to those statements are mixed. I my experience in the Adirondacks and wilderness, low impact adventures in the Rockies, This is a "taking care of business all-in-one tool". To me, and I consider myself a "Seasoned Woodsman and long and short pull camper" I equate this piece to the BroadSword of old. Not a slicing or piercing tool but one that will pummel anything in its path h. I'm glad to pack it wherever I trek. rd of oWould you recommend this to a friend? Yes

This is a very sturdy knife machste. The big problem I have with it was it did not come sharpened. I'm going to have to sharpen it before it is combat ready. This knife is not for everyone. It is much heavier than a regular machete or parang. Overall, it is a sturdy piece of metal.Would you recommend this to a friend? No

Rating5 star5
I have to say, I have not spent this much on a blade in a very long time. When I pulled it out of the box I didn't know what to say. Looked beat up and unfinished. Well I was unwilling to send it back as I waited for 5 days to get it, so I did my homework. I LOVED that RAMBO and so I read about this blades story on Hibbens' website. Turns out Stallone wanted the blade to look like this. Rough. Unpolished. Well it is all that, plus it looks like it was only meant for one thing...to kill. In short buy this blade for what it is. It is not razor sharp, but I can fix that should I choose. Also...I did alter the handle by removing the thin leather straps. It fist my hand better and I can swing this all day long now (matters not that it is VERY heavy for a blade) with abandon. Respectfully, KestonWould you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I am kinda obsessed with knives and machetes, I would highly recommend ANYTHING made or designed by Gil Hibben. How ever I was GREATLY LET DOWN by this machete. It is overly heavy the handle is too thick for comfort for working, the leather wrap for the hand "grip" is a joke as far as Hibben is concerned. It was Dull out of the box, and hard to bring to a good edge. It is called the Hibben IV, which is also a name used for the Hibben Combat machete, of similar design. (Which I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING, DONT WASTE MONEY ON THIS GET THE COMBAT MACHETE made my Hibben it is 20 x the tool this one pretends to be.Would you recommend this to a friend? No

You get what you pay for. Wished it was lighter but awesome. It wasn't as sharp. It is what it is. Will put the best edge I can on it and then use. Would I recommend it yes. This is a bone crusher with a work out. Thanks for asking will continue to purchase products, I have a passion for collecting cutting tools.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

Reviewed by Roy Dunigan from Arizona on 22-Apr-2014More like an axe
Rating2 star2
I can tell why this was reduced in price from the original nearly $80. For a Hibben knife, this one is awfully off-balanced. Seriously, a person's wrist will very quickly tire out using this as a knife or machete. Examining the thick blade and the off-center balance, this knife would serve better as an axe for chopping up kindling. That is if it were sharp. This knife has literally no edge. I've bought cheap hatchets at Wal-Mart that were sharper. As other reviewers have pointed out, the heat tempering is also unequal along the length of the blade. It's as if the middle of the blade was placed directly over a small heat source but either end of the blade was not heated to the same temperature. The leather wrapping on the handle is also loose and I can tell it will eventually have to be re-wrapped and better secured. Maybe even replaced with a wooden handle. This will make a decent heavy-duty chopping blade once I sharpen the edge. That is going to take some time to do it right, and to re-temper the whole thing. Overall, this knife is proof that attaching a well known name to it doesn't necessarily denote a quality product. Perhaps the design was meant to appeal to our inner barbarian macho-men, but truthfully a lighter, sharper, balanced blade would do the same.

I have 7 Gil Hibben knives. This is the one I wish I had not wasted my money on. You can tell the hardness of steel when you file it. This knife was one big unuseable slab of unequally hardened steel. I would have to re-shape and re-temper it just to make it useful.

OK, the cons. The lanyard looks like the result of an exercise to find the thinnest leather strapping, which is suitable for garotting guinea pigs but that is about it. The felt wrap on the handle also doesnt appear built for the long haul. It is essentially a flat wedge of 1/4 inch steel and cries out for more meat on the handle. Complaints about sharpness are missing the design here. The cutting edge is dual purposed: the first half (leading edge) is more of a chisel, for heavy duty work, at the far end where momentum will help. The half to the grip has a fine honable edge for cutting work, The finish is standard blueing. Of note are tool marks on both sides of the blade, oval shaped, 3 or 4 on each side. There are also some milder circular marks. I cannot think what these are for, unless it is to mark clearance blades as opposed to the original issue? Anyways, this is a serious piece of metal, at a great price. With some fixing up it will be more than adequate for going through anything short of concrete, or for fitness training.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
