In 1952 Gil Hibben fell in love the "Iron Mistress" Bowie knife when he saw the movie of the same name starring Alan Ladd playing Jim Bowie. Gil never forgot the legendary Bowie knife depicted in the movie and decided to make one for himself. That was the first of many Bowie knives that Gil has made during his 50 year career as a knifemaker and it is still one of his favorite knives.
Gil's version of Iron Mistress Bowie Knife features a massive blade of 440C high carbon stainless steel. The blade is 10 1/2 inches long, 2 inches wide, 1/4 inch thick and it is topped with a brass blade catcher all the way back to the sculpted stainless steel guard. The beautiful African Blackwood handle is inlayed on both sides with alternative ivory and adorned with a brass collar, brass butt cap and mosaic pins. One side of the handle is scrimshawed with "Jim Bowie" and the inlay on the other side is left blank so you can personalize it.
This beauty is a full 16 inches in overall length and weighs 1 1/2 pounds. It comes complete with a handmade custom fitted leather sheath.
