This knife was one of the original prototype designs from when Gil Hibben was designing a knife for the new "Rambo" IV movie.
This design was rejected for the movie because it was too "finished" looking and Sylvester Stallone wanted something much more crude and primitive looking.
But Gil liked the design which incorporates features of both of the knives that he created for the last two "Rambo" films so we decided to offer it to our collectors.
The "Big John" entirely handmade and features a massive 11 5/8" blade of 1/4" thick D2 high carbon steel and a beautiful Macassar Ebony handle. The overall length of the knife is a whopping 17 1/4 inches.
