Really nice Reviewed by Papawgary on Jan 01, 2015   4 out of 5

The sheath could have been another 1/8 inch longer but I able to force the knife in enough to snap the strap. Overall it's a beatiful knife and appears it could be very usefull. I don't worry about the sharpness of knifes when I buy them but how well they hold the edge I sharpen them to. I'll have to see how that goes. A really nice knife, get you one!

Hibben Karate Reviewed by Christopher on Oct 04, 2013   4 out of 5

Knife came in very sharp, leather sheath is heavy duty and very well made! What I like most about this knife is that it's surprisingly heavy! I dont plan on using this knife, but if I had to use it as a hammer, I wouldnt be afraid to break it.

Great Knife 5* but Reviewed by Patrick on Sep 05, 2013   5 out of 5

Lets get the negatives out there right off the bat, this knife came dull, so very very very dull that it could not cut anything, cardboard, paper, meat, air, nothing at all :) (and I'm pretty useless with a sharpening stone so will have to send it off to be professionally sharpened). That's the negative list done. The positives are many, it really is a beautiful looking knife, great weight, feel and balance, the mahogany handle is excellent and very comfortable, the heavy duty thick leather sheath is also very nice. Overall its an excellent knife, well worth the money, but they really need to work on sharpening that blade in the factory.

I own over 60 knives. 10 are Hibbens. Almost all from BudK. The Hibbens are impeccable. Easily my finest knives. The Karate knife is simply another work of art Hibben has created.

Finally got a Hibben Reviewed by Charles on Apr 06, 2013   5 out of 5

I've purchased several knives from this great company, and I finally bought my first Hibben, the Karate knife. My other less expensive knives pale in comparison to this one, in looks, quality, feel, and workmanship. It's truly a work of art. Over the coming months I'll be buying all the Hibben's I can get. I was not disappointed, quite the opposite. Can't wait to open another box with a Hibben inside!

This is a thing of beauty. Excellent knife, I am very proud of it and it has performed very well for grim tasks. I got this for christmas and it is a work of art. I WILL BUY HIBBEN KNIVES FROM KNOW ON!!!

First time Hibben Buyer Reviewed by Gannon Brimer on Dec 28, 2011   5 out of 5

The photo does NOT do this knife justice. It is an exceedingly stunning knife. This knife has a good weight with a nice well balanced feel. I wanted a knife with a true wood handle and I was not disappointed. The craftsmanship of this knife is top notch. It shaved hair off my arm right out of the box. I will buy Hibben knives again.

This is my second Hibben, and I love it. Has a good weight to it, very sharp and leather sheath is beautiful. Great knife if your looking to buy one.

My First Hibben Reviewed by Jim on May 09, 2011   5 out of 5

Purchased my first Hibben knife recently and I am very pleased with the Karate Fighter. The heft is perfect and balanced. The beautiful mahogany wood handle is hand friendly and accented with pleasing Micarta inserts. The brass pommel and guard are brightly polished and attractive. I was concerned with Chinese origin. However, the blade and overall workmanship is excellent. I highly recommend this knife for everyday use and show.

Excellent For The Price Reviewed by Jim on May 04, 2011   5 out of 5

My Hibben arrived today. This is my first Hibben and I am very pleased with the quality, feel and look. I was concerned with the materials and workmanship originating in China. However, the entire knife is of good quality. I suspect Mr. Hibben demands some quality when a manufacturer uses his name and design for knives.
