Rating5 star5
This knife is designed like a heavy duty meat cleaver on steroids. It is sturdy knife with a wide, heavy bade that is long and sharp the entire length. I chopped down to shards a chunk of 12X12 block and it diced it up all most effortlessly. It didn't dull it at all. It seemed like the knife got sharper. The knife is made of tough steel. I will probably be using it to make quick work of some of my tree trimming this spring see how id does on live wood and on anything else I want to hack down ease.Would you recommend this to a friend?

Reviewed by Roddy J Dryer from Groveland FL on 23-Feb-2013Hibben Combat Machete is a Hit
Rating5 star5
It's intriguing to come across this knife, as I have been hoping for something like it well before I saw it. I wanted the size and heft of a machete or large knife while having the handling and feel of a Bowie, but i wanted something getting away from the typical clip point. The average clip point or even drop point distracts from the forward heft, limiting the knife. Kudos to Mr. Hibben for having the foresight to create something like this. It shows confidence and he certainly deserves to possess that. Now, the jury is still out on how this knife (and particularly the sheath) hold up over time. This knife will be used heavily at times and this is just what I imagined would be the perfect fit. It's just that time will tell on the sheath. I believe the knife itself looks strong and I am not one to brutalize a knife with no purpose, but the sheath feels a bit fragile for something on the way to work. Overall, I am very happy I purchased this knife. This is my third Hibben, but far from my last.

Reviewed by B-rad from New Mexico on 06-Mar-2013My Favorite Knife
Rating5 star5
I have been accumulating quite a knife/sword collection over the years, and I have knives for different applications. I have to say, this Hibben IV Machete Knife is my favorite. The quality is superb. The design is excellent. The size is intimidating. The blade thickness is something not to mess with. The sheer weight of this knife will cut/crush thru anything. The handle is solid and strong enough to hold the weight of the massive blade. The handle also feels great in the hand and the guards are an awesome addition to the handle and I feel safe that my hand won't ride up onto the blade. The sheath is huge with thick classic leather and the blade slides in/out easy as butter. I have nothing but great things to say about this knife. Like I said, it is my favorite. Everyone I show are like, "Whoa!". Let me put it to you this way, when you have this knife in your hand, you feel equivalent to when a caveman just made a big kill on a hunt and he sees his family feasting off his kill and knows they will be fat for the next couple of days..........Yea, boost your testosterone, get this knife.Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

This is hands-down one of the coolest blades I've ever owned. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a machete of the highest quality. Be warned: it is incredibly sharp, so be careful.

Reviewed by Navajas from Rottenwood, AZ on 09-Oct-2010Initially I was impressed, but....
Rating4 star4
Initially after receiving this bold and aggressively designed "rejected" knife by Sly Stallone for "Rambo" for being "too nice" considering how Rambo had to make one overnight and for it to be this beautiful beast, would be unpractical (unpractical, unrealistic, these are oxymorons in a "Rambo" picture). But that's not what irked me. My anal retentiveness for attention to detail raised a red flag when marveling and admiring the craftsmanship Hibben invested into the bad boy, revealed at the hilt:"CHINA" yes, I'm sorry for being the wet blanket! It was an overpriced "Chinese Product". And I'm also part Chinese! But that aside, This is a must have for Hibben, Bowie,and oversized edged instruments collectors. Although, I might have to advise getting it for much less than 89.99. I was lucky or unlucky to get it @80.99.

Rating5 star5
I have owned two of these(i had to get another 1 when my first one broke) and the only thing that i noticed that was that the first one was that the handle is kinda full tang but it's got a bar welded to it instead of it being one solid peace of 440. the grain is nice heavy enough to cut if just dropped by the weight of it. i got to say even though i already ran through 1 this is a very nice blade and for any machete lover this is one u should get

Rating3 star3
As everyone has said "WOW", this is and awesome looking and feeling knife. Mine had perfect assembly and finish. However, as one other reviewer said, "it broke". The first time I used it to clear some brush I saw removing a 1" Peacan sapling from a trail and before I realized anything was wrong several half-moon shaped 1" wide pieces of the blade were missing. Best used for impressing your friends and cutting grass or light vines.

Reviewed by ChrisM from Birmingham, AL on 12-Jul-2010Beautiful Machete
Rating5 star5
This is a fantastic machete to add to a collection. It really is impressive. I have this and Hibben's Alaska Survival Knife...both are stunners. Some have experienced breakage with use, this is due to the stainless steel, rather than Hibben's design. If you are needing a machete for hard use, go with carbon steel. Stainless tends to be a bit brittle.
