Gil Hibben has a history of designing knives for Sylvester Stallone to feature in his films, going back to the "Rambo III" Bowie. Stallone is an avid collector of Gil's custom knives, and that relationship continued when Stallone commissioned Gil to make several knives to use in his new film, "The Expendables." One of these movie star knives was a never-before-produced, custom designed Old West Toothpick. This handsome, versatile fixed blade knife features a classic 11 7/8" Arkansas toothpick style blade, gold plated blade back and classic hardwood handle. It includes a handsome genuine leather sheath and certificate of authenticity. Measures 17 1/2".
Very beautiful knives, great additions to my collection. My favorites of all my knives.
Really really Beautiful knife made with amazing detail great collectible came in mint condition
Absolutely love this knife, very great build. Beautiful craftsmanship. Very solid knife.
Sheathing looks good. Fit and Finnish are bad on the knife handle and bolster. No quality control.
I started collecting knives about a year ago after I started collecting Katanas about two years ago. Basically I wanted to try to get at least one of every different basic kind of knife. I bought a bowie, a kukri, a dagger, a small folder and now this. I was looking for something with this design but when I got it in the mail, I was amazed. The fit and finish is absolutely out of this world. Perfect. And, it was razor sharp out of the box. I was only surprised by the fact that it was larger than I envisioned and, or course, a little heavier but this blade is absolutely gorgeous and highly recommended. The mirror finish is simply beautiful. I almost hate to cut anything with it but paper to remind me just how sharp it is.
Awesome knife! I'm a knife collector, so when I saw that the " Expendables" bowie knife was on sale for 50 bucks I decided to buy it. Man o man! This thing is not only a collectible, but a real fighter as well. It is RAZOR sharp, and I could not find a single flaw in it. It is well built and the mirror polish is superb. The sheath is made of real leather and is built and designed well. The knife fits perfectly in the sheath and I have no problem sheathing and unsheathing it. Again it is RAZOR SHARP, and I would recommend it to anyone. 10/10. Ps: Budk has great customer service, the best prices, and shipping is great .
This is probably the best knife so far I have bought from BUDK! The knife is beautiful and solid build. This knife is great for collection or you can use it for protection. The knife is sharp out of the box. BUDK have the best price in town!
This is the Best Blade I have ever owned! I was expecting a good knife when I ordered this, and was Super Impressed when it arrived. Very Sturdy, Very Good Looking and Sharp as a razor! My wife looked at it and her finger prints were on the blade when she handed it back, Yes I did, I went to wipe her prints off on my sleeve and sliced thru everything, including the first couple of layers of my arm. I " Thought" I was careful with sharp knives, I just was not expecting this blade to be razor sharp. The Stainless Steel blade is mirror shine! Rock Solid from top to tip. I would give this knife a 6 Star rating if possible. The discounted price makes this a bargain. Everybody that sees this blade is impressed. I, of course, give stern warnings about how sharp the blade is. I had some etching done and that also looks great. Like I said earlier, 6 Star transaction!! RH
I really like this knife. Big, hefty, beautiful and sharp right out the box. Definitely an intimidating piece. And for $50 you can’t go wrong. This is my 2nd one. Kudos to Budk for fast processing/shipping.
One of my friends/weapon buddies saw these and bought two... as he often says, if one is good, two is mo better... anyway I noticed them hanging on his pack and asked about them... got to playing with it and, sucker that I am for bowies, toothpicks, daggers and assorted stickers and slashers, asked him if he was interested in selling me one of them... he considered it for a couple weeks and then let me have one for the money he had in it. This thing is truly a short sword but certainly in line with some of the early bowies. My buddy is anal about maintaining a sharp edge on every knife he owns, so it came to me super-sharp, and with a sharpened back-edge too. Dunno how well it will keep an edge but it certainly TAKES an edge! The blade is designed more as a sticker rather than a slasher but the sheer size and mass of this thing would deliver a mean cut... Like a katana, it isnt really meant for playin around with but I'd like to try it out on some hangin meat, like a pig or deer, just to see...
Such a nice knife! Long and heavy blade, which came shaving sharp right out of the box. I cut my finger down to the bone running my finger lightly down the edge, doubting it’s sharpness, so be careful. The brass spine looks quite nice. The leather sheath is well-made, but fits a little too tightly. I’m sure that this will resolve itself over time, though. My only complaint worth mentioning is that (even with my above average-sized hands) the grip feels like grabbing a 2x4. It is not the end of the world, since I can always sand it down to a more comfortable shape and re-finish it, but it is worth noting for anybody with small to medium hands. Overall, I am still extremely happy with my purchase, and it will adorn my hip for the foreseeable future.
This is another one of Gil's blades for my collection. Beautiful construction massive and so sharp it can cut paper like a safety blade. Nice sheath , too nice of a knife to take on a camping trip...but would hold up nicely as it's a beast. The handle perfectly carved and fits well even in my average hands. Great value and identical to the expendable version minus the logo.
I purchased this more out of curiosity than anything else, and I can say I'm quite happy with this knife. I cannot say how strong the tang is because I haven't attempted to see how it's fastened in the handle or how far in it goes, but as a cutting and stabbing tool this thing would be devastating. I'm usually more about function than fashion but this one wooed me. I have to admit that I like showing it off.
I just purchased this with the 30% off code. Wow! What a deal. I do not purchase Hibben knives for functionality due to the materials. Not that they are not capable, but the steels are not ideal. Leave that to the Ontario knives, condors, etc. The Hibben family produces beautiful knives. This one may be functional, but it is far too pretty for me to cut anything more than soft targets... like a steak. If you enjoy top notch craftsmanship and design this is a very nice piece to add to your collection.
This is my second review of the Gil Hibben Old West Toothpick! I received this knife a Monday morning and left for my cabin in the north woods of Michigan on Wednesday morning, taking the Toothpick with me! I thought I would play with it a little out in the woods. My wife laughed at me when I hung the HUGE knife on my belt. The Hibben was hanging just behind my S&W .357 on my right hip. I headed out to the back side of my place taking my 3 German Shepherds with me. Just as I could see the property line I saw something move in the underbrush. A full grown coyote came out on to the path in front of me. The dogs started for the snarling coyote. Then panic set in the coyote was foaming at the mouth. My dog lunged toward it, I screamed calling them back! My Shepherds are like family to me, the last thing I wanted was for them to tangle with a rabid animal! My hand went to my gun but I realized the dogs were too close, I might hit one of them. I yanked the big knife out of the sheath and went at the "yote" without thinking. My first slash missed, I turned my wrist and reversed the next slash. The second slash made contact just below the animals left ear, partially severing the neck. My dogs were so close by this time I couldn't get off another slash. A single downward thrust through the rib cage ended the situation. I ran the 1/4 mile back to the cabin to get the rabies tainted blood off my hands. As I was running back the thought went through my mind that without the Toothpick this could have and most likely would have ended with me or one of my furry buddies being bitten. The dogs wouldn't have tolerated the coyote biting me and would have jumped in the fray. Only 2 more preventative shots left to go! Damn they hurt!
I bought this knife thinking it would be just a wall hanger! Man-o-Man did I get a surprise. I took it out of the box, the first thought that went through my mind was how good it felt in my hand. I examined it very closely and, found out how well made it is. The edge was good but up to my standards so, I pulled out a steel hone thinking I had a long job ahead of me. All it took was 25 strokes and the big knife was sharp enough to shave the hair off your arm. I forge my own swords, battle axes and, fighting knifes. So my opinion does carry a bit more weight than a normal buyer! Since the knife was well made and now near razor sharp, I thought I would run it through the same tests as my own hand made knives and the high end fighters in my collection. I hung a 1 inch diameter blue spruce limb from a piece of 550 cord from a rafter in the garage. A single 45degree downward slash cut through the limb with no hesitation at all. Next I clamped a white pine 1 x 1 in a vise and chopped through it. The edge wasn't turned only dulled slightly, 10 stroke on the hone and, it's as good as new! Yep I'm going to hang it on the wall because it is truly a beautiful piece but, it's more than just a wall hanger! This a useable knife, a huge useable knife at a super price! Don't let the fact that this is a United Cutlery item fool you, it's a great piece.
My go to when I get worried one glance and anyone is backing up and it comes in handy in the yard blade is razor sharp and holds up to hacking at trees. Dont get it I want to be the only one with it. lol
This one is a beauty that lives up to the hype. mine did come with a bent tip when it arrived, other than that, it is perfect. I use my knives, they're not just wall hangers, and this one did great in the bush.highly recommend you get one.
Very nice, sharp. Looks great mounted on a piece of Oak hanging on my wall. This is just too nice to take out to the woods and use. I don't want to tear it up. It just looks so cool. Sure it would do what it is designed to do but I have other knives that are made for hunting fishing and gutting elk or whatever you may need to gut.
Just received this knife. What more can be said than "Beautiful". Infarct, I just ordered a second one engraved for my collection. It will be a heirloom to hand down thru the family. Well made and solid, big knife. I would recommend this knife, it's very impressive. The sheath seems well made as well. This first knife will become a tool that I will use when hunting, camping etc. You can't go wrong with this one.
Have been using it for 5 months with no damage. This blade came out of the box razor sharp. I feel bad for anyone who is receiving this blade in one of their vital organs. It feels nice in the hand and I feel like a badass whenever I hold it. I wouldn't put this thing anywhere near my teeth tho because it's scary as hell.
As a dealer, I've seen many but this is a perfect 10 like Bo Derek was in the movie. This knife is super sharp out of the box. It is absolutely awesome beautiful and amazing with a perfect wonderful balanced feel. It is solid, heavy, and well made with a mirror polished look and finish. If you are on the opposite side, you are facing an intimidating menacing weapon that will surely cut you with its razor edge or leave you with a large stab wound that may prove fatal on account of its size. It is a survival tactical dagger, bowie knife and toothpick all in one and worth every penny. If this is a gift for someone special, you might as well order 2 because when it arrives, you are going to want to keep it for yourself. And if you are ordering 1 for yourself, order 2 because 1 is for you and the other is for the wall as a showcase. The leather sheath I got is the perfect size and made out of real leather. This is a keeper and yes I only ordered 1, but now I have ordered my 2nd one. Like I said, it is a PERFECT 10.
Bought this knife a few weeks ago, and it is one of my favorite Bowie's. This thing is a work of art, fine materials and craftsmanship. Thanks BudK, and I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone wanting a knife that makes a statement. Joe.
Out of all of the Hibben knives I have purchased this one is by far the best. Very fine tip. Amazing detail. I woukd recommend this to anyone who likes bowie knives. You won't be dissapointed with this purchase.
When I purchased this knife I thought I was just getting another Bowie knife because I collect them I have hundreds of Bowie's, but when I took it out of the box it is razor sharp and flawless I was so impressed with it that I bought another one to put on display with my other Bowie's so I can use this one and see how it holds up, and I got 2 of the little hibben boot knifes that looks just like the big one those two blades look great together on display now I am making those two knifes my daily work and play knifes, if they hold up as good as they look then it was well worth it, but they are truly well designed knifes I like how the tips are just slightly angled for easy Penetration and the balance is nice for swinging, so I will give a endurance write up in a couple months to let you know how both of them did.
A big knife that begs to used. While I'll purchase another Old West Toothpick to become trailer queen on the wall, this aw-s&$t knife is perfect for hacking around the garden, doing camp chores, and storing under the seat in my pick-up. As a fencer. it is NOT a light blade, but the knife balances nicely, even though the handle is bit too large and too smooth for me. A couple of hours of sanding will fix that issue. While far to slow as real knife fighter, this knife is perfect to scare the crap out of any un-sophisticated bad guys and lets you, " Get the Heck outta Dodge" while their jaws are still hitting the ground. The servicable sheath, will last at least a couple of years of moderate use. Excellent value.....and a real hoot to hold.
Solid, Sharp and super polished blade, is a great looking knife that would definitely serve the purpose it is intended for, yet looks so nice on display. Coupled this with the Gil Hibben Boot knife of similar build. Look great together.
Steven W.2 March 16. This knife is BAD to the bone. I liked it so much that I had to have another. Flawless and sharp out of the box. If you love Big knives, well the Hibbens Toothpick is the answer. BUDK thanks for a great product and at a rock solid price.
It's great for making kindling from tree branches or digging a hole for a fire. The ballence and the heavy weight feel so conferrable in my hand. I have sharpened the hollow ground blade by hand and now its razor sharp enough to shave but I never shave in that I'm a mountain man from Boulder Creek Ca. So pick the style that fits you and buy one, you will love it too!
BY FAR the nicest blade I have purchased from BudK. This thing is huge! Feels great in my hand. The sheath is snug but seems well made. The blade came sharp out of box. Worth Every penny. Highly satisfied with the addition to my growing collection. The bigger the better!
awsome bowie knife, ordered one for me and my grandson these are a hierlooms, strongest knfe ive seen , the scales fit your hand like a glove its still in its box , its a keeper to be handed down
This knife has excellent weight and feel, but it is way too nice to use so I will display it with my other Hibbens. As hard as I've looked I cannot find a flaw in it and the price was superb also. I'm very happy with it.
I love it. A piece of Art. Solid, Sharp. Well Made. I love the feel of it in my hand. The Sheath is well made as well. Well worth the money.
I not only collect knives, but also make them. Of all of the knives I have bought over the years, this is one of the most beautiful. The design is unique, mixing old world and new, but certainly is Gil Hibben. The fit and finish is excellent, and the mirror polished blade is too pretty to be covered with a sheath, although the one included is of very high quality. All in all, one of the best investments you can buy at such a low price.
This is one nice knife,It is well made and sturdy I will display it and I already made a stand for it and I cut out the bottom of the box and used clear plastic to enhance the display stand. This is a great buy I have the Rambo Hibben knife also.
This knife is very well made and for the price is a knife enthusiasts' dream. The blade is sharp and the look of the knife is menacing. Feels good in the hand and it is well balanced.
PERFECT KNIFE, Sharp Right Out Of The Box, The Point Stands Up To Its Name, Especially After I Stabbed Myself Accidentally And Tore A Chunk Of My Skin Off! The Sheath Was A Little Too Tight But After Constantly Unsheathing, The Sheath Kind Of Molds Itself To The Blade And Becomes Easier To Draw! Overall Perfect Knife For Any Blade Lover! A MUST HAVE ESPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE!!
My first big bowie. It was very sharp right out of the box. It is cool and mean looking. Recommend it to anyone!
This knife was my main reason for ordering. The Knife is fantastic I don't know how they can produce this knife and case for the little money they charge, what a great value. My knife fits the case perfectly. I couldn't be happier or more impressed with it. Note the blade tip comes to such a fine point the only thing I am worried about is if you drop it on a hard surface it may break off.
Love the knife, well balanced, well made, sharp out of the box, sheath is ok, great knife for the price.
I do love this knife, It's got a good weight to it, nice sheath, well built. Sharp out of the box, and shiny to boot. I love having this knife, and it is definitely worth the price.
I have been wanting to purchase this knife for quite some time. I am so glad I finally did. It is a very solid and sharp knife right out of the box. The sheath and knife match perfectly. Merry Christmas to me!
i love this knive,it feels rigth in the hand,good balance,long slinder blabe,but strong,i have a few more hibben,s knives,and they seacond to none love them all
Gill Hibbens is one of the best knife makers in the world i was so glad that my wife bought the tooth pick at the price was the best chritmas present ever i am a knife maker myself haveing several of his knifes is is on my bucket list kenshaw i love you
This knife is great in every regard, especially in design, aesthetic appearance, weight, and balance. The sheath is of good quality and the dark wood handle is exceptional in design/appearance. It is sometimes difficult to find and obtain 'tooth-pickers', but for the price this knife is special.
Wow! When I opened the box and held it...awesome. This is one well done variation of the Arkansas toothpick. I had not purchased a Gibben knife before. Well made. Well balanced and a great sheath to complement it. This is designed for more of a fighting knife with the brass piece on the top edge of the blade. A true "toothpick" is double edged all the way to the hilt. Great grip. Recommended.
No American knife collection would be complete without an Arkansas toothpick. Hibben's design is well thought out. Very pleasing to the eye. This is one large knife - almost a short sword. If you are looking for a pig-sticker, this should be on the top of your list. The sheath is perfect for this knife. I love real leather! The snap on strap and the tie down leather string makes this one secure sheath.
Of all the knives I have purchased from Kennesaw (25), this knife is the most beautiful, well designed, and it fits my hand perfectly. The gold brace works well with the silver/steel blade and dark handle!
The knife just looks "cool" and it is functional. Sturdy and solid. Previously purchased the "expendables" version and now purchase two more standard versions. Great knife and among other things will go along nicely with "SASS" gear.
purchased this knife and upon receiving it, was surprised how sharp it was out of the box. trying to find a non leather sheath for it. Great Knife for the price.
This is the most well balanced knife ever! Perfect size and weight. the sheath is so well made. HIBBEN strikes again!!!! I have 5 Hibben knifes, all the best ever!!
Get this knife!!! You will not regret it! If you only plan on one knife...get this one. This is worth full retail price of $189.00! Nearly as long as my forearm, heavy and a true beauty. I like this one so much I have bought the old west bowie, another Gil hibben classic.
Knife is high quality well made . Went on vacation . Florida supervised gator kill knife performed extremely well not a scratch on it when I was done. Too bad I can't say the same for the gator.
It's ironic that my second gil hibben bowie would happen to be on closeout, and I love it! This bowie is everything I read about and more! Can't wait to get it's big brother.
This knife is way more than I expected, I knew the length when I ordered it but when it came I was amazed how solid and intimidating it really was. It came pretty sharp but I will probably give it a little tweaking, I have not put it to any test but it looks like it will stand up to anything I will put it through, I am pleased with my purchase and am looking at some other Bowie knives now. I am spoiled with this knife it will be hard to find one to equal it.
Great knife, great price. Razor sharp out of the box. If you like monster blades, you need this one!
This knife is a must have for any knife collector . Knife is worth every cent. Fully loaded knife is one sweet piece of steel. The leather sheath alone is worth the price . That is how much I am impressed with the value of this product. Kudos to Gil and the staff at bud k keep the great products coming.
Great Price , Sharp , well balanced , Great hostler , delivered just in time to chase the wild boar from the front yard(just kidding.) A must have for bush walking all year round . What ever you come across this untied cutlery can handle the job...but can you handle the Toothpick. Thanks UC great knife . Mb
WOW WOW WOW!!!!!! what a beautiful and awsome knife, I just cant get over the intimidating piece of steel that it is. Gil, Hats off and 5 stars.
WOW! Get this Old West Toothpick Bowie Knife today. You will be happy. Sugg. Retail: $163.00 it is on sale $39.98 You Save: $123.02 (75%) Off! You really should see / get this bad a_s knife.
THIS KNIFE IS SOLID, HEAVY, AND ONE HECK OF A DESIGN. AFTER TRIMMING MY ROSE BUSHES, THE KNIFE WAS NO WROST FOR USING IT.
A large, heavy well made knife. More of a short sword/fighting knife but will work well as a tactical/survival knife if you don't mind the size and weight. I have used mine to trim branches, chop down small trees to create a better field of view at my hunting stands. The knife has held up well under these conditions.
Absolutely beautiful knife! Worth every penny to me. If you like your knives big and intimidating, this one is for you!
Got this toothpick to check it out and might i say its awesome!!! A very good show knife! It does have some properties that you can use it for but its very limited. The sheath is awesome! Now im gonna save up and get one from gil not united.
Just got the knife for Christmas, and let me say what a great knife in all areas. This knife is beautiful and fits great in your hand. It seems like a solid piece of cutlery and can't wait to put it to some real use. I got this knife because i loved the expendables and knives so I wanted to add this to my collection and its now my most favorite knife!
This is an amazing knife. This Hibben design has set the bar for all other designs to come. The pictures do not do justice to the appearance, quality and feel of this blade. Five stars is not enough.
An absolutely wonderful knife. Unlike any toothpick I have ever had. Has the feel of a Bowie, Dagger and Toothpick all at the same time. Quality workmanship on this one and nice handle. Mine could have been sharper but 5 stars doesn't do this knife justice. If you are a Hibben Fan or just a 'big knife' nut, you have to get this one.
This is BY FAR the best knife I have EVER had! For the price especially. It wasn't quite as good of a deal as the timber rattler western outlaw bowie, but none the less, it is a great price. If you like big, cool, knives, then I guarantee you'll LOVE this knife!!
This is quite a knife. The handle seems to be just the right size to go with the knife's length. My only complaint is the sheath I received is a half inch too short for the blade and the snap can't be snapped. The knife itself is so nice, I may never use it and become a collector instead. The Hibben Karate Fighter I bought along with it would be a great start for a collection.
Knife is fine but sheath is too tight at the tip. It takes some effort to push the knife all the way into the sheath so the retaining strap can be snapped closed. Removal also takes some effort since sheath needs to be held with one hand while knife is pulled out of sheath with the other hand. A real pain in the a**!
Out of the six Hibben knives in my collection, this is the worst quality. The tip of the blade is bent into a 180 degree fishhook as it was delivered- no damage to the box or packaging materials. With the hooked tip, it would not even fit into the leather sheath.
