1994 - Black Double Shadow - UC453-B
This is a mint original Gil Hibben Double Shadow--the BLACK version of that knife. The knife measures 11-5/16" overall with a 5-3/4" double blade that is marked on one side: "Designed by Gil Hibben", with the Hibben Knives logo and on the other side: "UC 453 Stainless/ Taiwan ". The black handle has a gold wire wrap; the guard and pommel are glossy black. The sheath is mint, also. As you know, the Double Shadow was Gil Hibben's second Fantasy Knife; they were made by United Cutlery in Sevierville , Tennessee . And the black Double Shadow was made in considerably smaller numbers (and much tougher to get!) than the silver version of the knife. And United Cutlery went bankrupt and was auctioned off by the US Bankruptcy Court in January, 2007. And all these Gil Hibben knives made by United Cutlery are now history.
