Once again Sylvester Stallone called upon Gil Hibben to make some custom knives for the film.
The Expendables 2 Bowie as seen in the original "The Expendables" movie in 2010 was carried by Dolph Lundgren as "Gunner Jensen" and was later seen used by Jason Statham as "Lee Christmas". Lundgren and the Bowie knife return in "The Expendables 2"
The Bowie is modeled after Gil's famous "Alamo Bowie" and was selected by Stallone when he saw it on Gil's website. The handle was changed to an ivory micarta handle so it could be scrimshawed with the Expendables logo by scrimshaw artist Rick "HutcH" Hutchings.
This massive Bowie knife features a 13 3/4" x 2 3/4" blade of 1/4" thick mirror polished 440C stainless steel and is topped with a brass blade catcher. The handle is ivory micarta with a brass guard and ferrule.
Both Stallone as "Barney Ross" and Jean-Claude Van Damme as "Jean Vilain" will be seen with Gil's Expendables 2 Toothpick which was also seen in the original film.
This slender beauty has a 12" x 1 1/2" blade of 3/16" thick mirror polished 440C stainless steel topped with a brass blade catcher. The handle is maroon micarta with an ivory micarta inlay and the Expendables logo scrimshawed by scrimshaw artist Rick "HutcH" Hutchings. The guard and pommel are stainless steel.
New to the Expendables is Gil's Legion Fighter. We are not sure who will be using this knife in the film.
This recurve fighter features a 9 3/8" x 2" blade of 1/4" thick mirror polished 440C stainless steel, stainless steel guard and pommel, and a black micarta handle.
This knife is featured on the cover of the November 2012 issue of Blade Magazine which also includes a 6-page spread about the Hibben knives in the movie.
Another new weapon for the Expendables is a new longer version of Gil's classic Double Shadow. In the new poster above, Scott Adkins ("Hector" in the movie) is shown holding this knife.
Gil is now taking orders for exact handmade serial numbered replicas of the knives he made for the movie.
