1980s Louisville KY
One of a Kind
In 2008 I was able to go down to the Blade Show with Gil and Linda. Saturday Gil comes up to me and says go see my buddy over in the corner, I think he might have something for you. I wondered over and introduced myself and the gentleman handed me this cane.
Gil said he only made one of these and that not only did he turn this cane into a sword cane but he also milled out the shaft to be used as a blowgun. When we got back to the house after the show he dug up and gave me some darts he had gotten for the cane.
Tanto tip and only marked Hibben Knives although he said it was from the 1980s.
In July 2008 it was sent to United cutlery as a possible prototype for a sword cane line
