The best blade ever design ever period

Gotta love the Hibben III fighter, its the iconic Rambo design scaled down to a more practical size. The Hibben III fighter is the best of the whole Gil Hibben catalog, I just wished they would make a damascus version. Gil Hibben is a absolute genus at what he does. I would recommend this to any one who wants a real heavy duty knife that is as functional as it is beautiful. Bud k is the best

Very nice knife

I bought this knife as a smaller alternative to the Hibben III, which I also own. I found the quality to be excellent The knife was sharp and looks durable and well constructed. The proportions on this knife actually make it look like it has a bigger (wider) blade than the Hibben III. The sheath was of good quality as well and had a nice broken in feel to it. Highly recommended.

Very nice knife

Phenominal Bowie!

I just received my Gil Hibben III Fighter and I absolutely love it. This is the perfect knife for the outdoors. I love the weight, balance and styling of this knife. I unfortunately purchased through Amazon. Oh well, s#%t happens. I will definately recommend this bowie to all my friends. Gil Hibben is definately the best!

Nice heft and balance

This is the fourth Hibben Knife I have purchased from Bud K. I have become addicted to the Hibben line of knives because of the attention to detail and the outright quality they put in their knives. I like the heft, the balance and the weight of this knife. It easily takes a razor sharpness and keep a good edge for a long time. This knife will serve me well for years to come. The only criticism I have is with the rat tail tang. This knife will definitely not be a good candidate for a survival situation, but is great for hunting and all around use.

Nice heft and balance

Heavy Hibben

I own a half dozen different Hibben bowie knives. The designs are real eye catchers. This is the heaviest of the bunch. Nice quality sheath. Delivery was quick. Knife quality is great. The price was very good. I shop around before making my purchases and BUDK usually comes out on top of the knife world. Thanks.

The best

This knife was unexpectedly heavy which makes it great for combat or hunting. It came sharp right out of the box but I like my knifes sharp enough to shave so a little time on the whetstone and it keeps the edge.

The best

Hibben III fighter

I have become a fan of Hibben custom knives. I first purchased the Recon for my son's first field hunting knife and was so impressed with it I decided to purchase a Hibben knife for myself. Well, I have now purchased two for me and the latest is the Hibben III fighter, it is the bowie style kife I have always wanted. I am impressed with the weight and balance built into this knife. It is the perfect all around field and camp knife in my opinion. Mine did come fully sharpened and the blade is leathal.

BEST IN COLD WEATHER

My youngest son lives in Anchorage, Alaska and needed a good hunting knife. I found this one on sale so I sent it to him. He LOVES the weight and balance of it. He also has to watch it very carefully as the others he hunts with have threatened to make it disappear, LOL, when he is not looking. I will be getting one for myself very soon.

Solid and sharp

Sharpest knife I've ever bought and feels great in the hand. Love the weight and the bolt on the bottom of the handle serves as a great weapon of its own if needed to strike with.

Great knife for combat

I am a life-long martial artist who has taught literally thousands of classes in knife fighting and empty-hand defense against the knife. I reviewed this knife for what it is, which is a "fighting knife" and not a survival knife. As a fighting knife it gets high marks. The balance is excellent. The steel is hard enough for the purposes of a combat knife (stab, rip, slash and cut). The handguard is angled so that you can utilize a thumb forward combat grip and maintain proper wrist angle. The handguard is large to defend well against an opponent "defanging the snake" offense/defense. The grip is well-designed in that the swell fits perfectly between the middle and ring finger for stability during a forward or back slash. The pommel is designed to capture your hand so it doesn't slide off the non-textured handle during pommel strikes. The guard can also be used as punching 'knuckles' in that the forward and rearward guards protrude far enough ahead of the hand that they will inflict injury if used in punching an opponent. In addition to the blade edge, the hard profile edges of the knife are able to be used as offensive weapons. My only criticism of this knife is that the blade is not full tang for extra strength. Instead it uses an internally threaded bolt to attach to the modified rat-tail type tang. However, the external bolt actually adds a nice degree of solidness and would be my 2nd choice to a full tang blade. A rat-tail tang is ok for a fighting knife since it's not a survival knife and was not designed for the stresses of a survival situation. For a fighting knife it is an acceptable method of attaching the handle. I have also given this knife some serious woodland field use (not abuse) and it served well. Its a good outdoor knife as long as the use of common sense is applied. It's a cutting/slicing instrument, and NOT a machete, ax, throwing knife or a tree footstep. I would highly recommend this knife to anyone that is looking for this style of knife.

Great knife for combat

practical field knife

I bought it as functional knife. It is large enough but not so huge that you don't want to carry it around on your side.. And it work life and durability built into it. Mine didn't come fully sharp some time with a hard stone fixed that.

great knife

the knife is great and good weight to it. did not come fully sharp but it is adequate and a simple knife sharpener will do the trick.
