well worth the $ Reviewed by on Nov 10, 2015   5 out of 5

420 is a higher carbon stainless steel used in high-end equipment such as surgical scalpels, scissors, bearings, etc.. It holds a edge far beyond anything I've ever owned and almost feel guilty using it. By far the best knife I have ever bought. Its a decent size right around 10 inches although I would have preferred it to be slightly shorter. It has a great thick leather sheath. Great knife.

HTF Recon Bowie Reviewed by Ben on Nov 30, 2014   5 out of 5

Like the other reviewers, I am very happy with the Hibben HTF Recon Bowie. The heft and feel, striking design, and balance are all outstanding. This "shorter" bowie is still a very substantial knife, and one you will never feel is inadequate. It handles very well. The blade is a pretty hard stainless steel and it took a little work to take it from sharp, which it was on delivery, to razor sharp, but it was worth the effort. The leather sheath is quite nice as well. You won't regret getting one of these.

An outstanding product. Super sharp right out of the box. Kennesaw sell them a a great price. Have given several to hunting friends as gifts for skinning deer and pigs. All have been very impressed with the quality of this knife. Will buy more.

Instantly a favorite! Reviewed by George on Nov 17, 2013   5 out of 5

I instantly fell in love with this knife the second I pulled it from the box. I originally purchased it as a mate to the Hibben Tactical Fighter III, intending on using it as a skinner. However, this knife has such nice heft, balance, and is unparalleled in sharpness and ability to hold an edge that I find myself pulling it from it's sheath more than the Tactical Fighter. It's blade is about half as long, but a good, hefty weight and thick steel that can take whatever you dish out to it. Feels really nice in your hand too! Buy one--you won't regret it! Hibben/United makes the highest quality and most utilitarian knives for the best prices! These are not wall-hangers. They are every day, useful tools!

Another Great Hibben Knife Reviewed by Jerry Tisdale on Jul 17, 2009   5 out of 5

Bought this some time back when they first came out. Top of the line in Hibbens practical group that are made to be used and not just looked at. Well designed, sturdy, sharp and also would make an excellent tactical knife if needed. This is a good one and surprisingly comes with a quality sheath.
