1987 Louisville KY
Custom made Prototype made for United Cutlery
Original prototype made by Gil Hibben for the United Cutlery production run design. Marked Hibben Knives Louisville KY PROTOTYPE. Although the united cutlery version does not have the roping that this prototype has, Gil remembers it specifically because of the roping. I believe this knife is in like new condition but would like to qualify that to say that it is a model prototype so the fit and finish is obviously not as perfect as a hand made for collector consumption.
