Blade Design and Material

The Shack now offers custom made knives and awesome leather holsters and sheaths.  All hand-made at the Shack.

The Shack's knife-making history:

My uncle began making knives when he was a teenager.  He doesn't remember what ever happened to them.  In about 1969 he moved to Alaska and polished his knife making skills by helping to set up Gil Hibbens shop in Anchorage and then started making knives along side of Gil. After a while, circumstances left him taking over Gil Hibbens business for a time and fulfilling many of Hibbens' pending orders.  He then began making knives under his own mark (Alstar Knives) and Hibben eventually returned to the craft and became the Hollywood knifemaker ( of Rambo and The Expendables fame. In 1976 I went to Alaska and was able to spend a lot of time in his shop and learned a lot about knife making.  I didn't get into knife making again until recently, and the Shack now offers great, functional and attractive knives that anyone would be proud of.  Your design or mine; let's put together the knife you've always wanted.
