Hollywoods Adopted Son and Knife Maker For The Stars
Gil Hibben achieved unusual yet deserved fame as a custom knife maker and his work has been featured anywhere people talk about knives. Over several decades he has attracted a following of famous collectors including John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Steve McQueen, Sylvester Stallone and Steven Segal. Gil's fame dramatically increased in 1988 when Sylvestor Stallone, who had purchased several of Gil's custom knives for his own collection, asked Gil to design the now famous knife used in the movie Rambo III. This was just one of over 30 movies and television shows that have featured Gil's designs including Star Trek Generations.
