Wes Has been making knives since he was 8 years old and learned the craft from his father, Hall of Fame knifemaker Gil Hibben. He had resided in Anchorage, Alaska and divided his time between knifemaking and teaching Kenpo Karate. As of December 2016 Wes has returned to LaGrange to carry on the Hibben Knives legacy.
Wes makes a variety of types of knives including art knives, hunting knives and tactical knives. Most of his work is for custom orders but he does occasionally have knives available for sale on this website or at knife shows.
