Like the classic Bowie knives of the Old West, the Gil Hibben Survivor Bowie is the ultimate warrior. This huge knife boasts a 10-inch blade made of AUS6 stainless steel with sawback teeth opposite the razor-sharp straight edge. However, unlike the old Bowies, this adaptation from Hibben is optimized for jungle survival.

A handsome black pakkawood handle features a nice ergonomic grip along with two polished bolsters that keep the knife from slipping out of your hand in wet conditions. The versatility of the knife, designed by legendary knifemaker Gil Hibben, is further illustrated in the lashing holes in the guard and pommel that allow you to create a makeshift spear with a long, wooden handle.

The survivor Bowie comes with a custom leather belt sheath stamped with the Hibben logo as a certificate of authenticity.

The blade is Hanzo steel!? From the antler of a 28 point super buck!?

The Bowie knife i bought, exceeded my expectations. I dont normally buy knives on the internet, cause i like to feel the balance, craftsmanship and materials before i buy it. This knife is great.

Blade arrived as expected new in the box, factory oiling still on the blade. Feels great in the hand & great balance. Sheath is much better quality than expected! If you are looking for a BFK for the zombie attack or a serious hunting or outdoorsman/ camping knife this is it!

This is one of the nicest, well crafted and durable knives that I've ever owned. It is a great addition to my collection.

Very nice and has a quality edge when it arrives. Be aware it is big so for some they may not like that. I love the size and quality of knife. It is a great tool for building shelters and making fires. It is so nice that some may not want to use or put it through the normal tests to see how it holds up. It has three holes so you can easily secure to large sturdy piece of wood to make a fearsome spear. This is not for the faint of heart or weekend warriors. Worth the money and you will like the way it feels in your hand. I myself like a large knife and have no problem carrying more then one knife. So, I would most likely have this one and a little smaller one like mentioned in the survival knife article by Knife Depot; it is an excellent and informative piece if you want to learn more about which knives to choose when looking for the perfect one for your taste and planned usage.

For the price I thought I was getting a good quality Bowie, instead they don't tell you that it's made in China, I have a good edge on it but it doesn't keep the edge, dulls quickly. If I knew this knifes quality I would have never bought it.

handle broke first weekend of use

Handle became loose after one weekend of using it to simply shave wood to make kindling for cooking fires. When tightened back up the butt of the knife is not in line with the rest of the knife.
