One more beast

I have been collecting knives every since I was big enough to know. I have never seen a better well built knife than the 2011 Annual Edition Gil Hibben Eclipse Bowie. Mr. Hibben it is one more beast of a knife. I salute you. You are a genius knife maker.

When I got this knife, there was no sheath! I was a little disappointed in that, but The real letdown was when 1/4 of an inch of the blade broke off, and now the knife has no point. To be fair though, I still really love this knife and you should certainly get it!

I got the knife and am very pleased with it however it was sent to me without a Sheath. I purchased it at full price and expected to get the complete piece. Kind of disappointing to tell the truth.
Response: We do sincerely apologize for this inconvenience as this is not how we ship our products. We are shipping you a sheath for this item. Once again we do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

This is one He** of a knife! This is a brute! Truly a work of art. I have mine mounted and framed on the wall. It is a sculpted work. Sharp, Massive, Intense. I had to mount it on the wall to keep myself from playing with it. Every knife enthusiast has heard "That's not a knife, This is a knife!" Oh SH** in comparison THAT one wasn't a knife either! THIS IS A KNIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!! The picture on the site can't do it justice. It is one you have to hold in your hand to get the real idea. I am going to one day buy another of these just so I can have one in each hand when they bury me. Taking it with me when I go. I love this knife.

Now THAT's a knife!

I just received my knife. I have quite a few Gil Hibben knives, I love them all. This new part of my collection probably came to quickly, this is the finest of them all! The heft of this knife is awesome, I probably need to work out just to be able to handle it properly. BUDK supplies ALL of my Hibben knives. What a great compliment this is to my collection, it will be hard to beat! My Recon Bowie is my next favorite. I was in Recon with the Marines in Nam. If we'd had these knives back then, we would have won the war. Thank you BUDK!

Awesome Blade

Beautiful, well-crafted, heavy, wicked sharp. Everything I was hoping for and more. Not sure what the autographed part was supposed to be. None on the sheath, where it usually is.

Fantastic Knife

When I first subscribed to Budk magazine this was the main knife that I wanted. Now that I've finally gotten my hands on it, I am reminded of why I made that decision. This knife is completely amazing. I'm assuming it has about a weight of 3 1/2 lbs and I'm assuming it'd really pack a punch. I mainly wanted this knife for two reasons, 1, I wanted a great knife to take hunting with me if I do get the chance to take an animal with just a knife (My dream) and 2, to show up my dad who's been bragging about his Gil Hibben knife that he recently purchased. I can safely say that I have accomplished both goals with this weapon. The only complaint that I have is that the first time I had this blade ordered, it got here with a slightly bent blade tip due to rough handling in the postage system as well as not having a plastic blade protecting tip. This was remedied when I shipped it back for a new one, and I am overjoyed with the end result. Also, the sheath comes a bit stiff and tight and worried me about the button scratching the blade, I solved this by placing a long screwdriver into it and leaving it overnight. By morning, I had a fully stretched sheath with more than enough room for the knife. Someone else had mentioned the handle being slightly too large and I'd have to disagree with them respectfully. I feel as though the handle is the perfect size, and would look and feel disproportionate to the massive blade if it were any smaller. This has become my absolute favorite knife.
