The Expendables 2, the star-studded, action-packed, shoot ’em up film of the year, won the box office a week ago and received pretty favorable reviews from critics.
While you may be most familiar with the huge stars of the film, including Sylvester Stallone, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jet Li to name a few, another group of players in the film deserve a spotlight: the knives.
Knifemaker Gil Hibben created knives for the movie in order to give the film more attitude. Hibben’s bowie knife from the first Expendables movie was one of the most memorable aspects. You can even get a replica of the famous knife.
Here are the knives from the sequel taken from Hibben’s website.
The Legion Fighter
The Alamo Bowie
The Double Shadow
All of these knives are finely constructed and have been used prominently in the movies by some of the main characters. In the November 2012 issue of Blade Magazine, there is going to be a six-page spread about the knives. I recommend picking up a copy to read more about these awesome knives.
