About Me

Wes Hibben

My career as a professional bladesmith

I have been making knives since I was 8 years old and learned the craft from my father, Hall of Fame knifemaker Gil Hibben. I now reside in Anchorage, Alaska and divide my time between knifemaking and teaching Kenpo Karate.

With my father, Gil, after I won the “Best Art Knife” award at the 2011 Knifemakers Guild Show.

My father and my brother Derek help to push me forward and continue to innovate on my designs and hone my skills further.

I teach Kenpo Karate at Golden Dragon.  I enjoy sharing my skills for self-defense and hope to encourage more people to learn for both safety and enjoyment.
