Turning a hardware store bolt into a miniature knife

The guy acts a little goofy at times, but he's definitely talented:

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I was thinking that it was a heck of a lot of work to make his antique GI Joe Action Figure a Bowie knife!

That is crazy! Who'd even think to do such a thing, let alone do it.

The guy is definitely a character but his work is amazing. Wonder how many hours it actually took to make the knife. He obviously has very good manual dexterity to handle something that small.

So now we know how Gil Hibben did it. He simply used a bigger bolt.

I watched some of his other videos. The dude is extremely creative, but I feel sorry for his wife or GF because he is just so... weird. At times he's very funny while other times he's extremely annoying. I hope when he's off-camera he tones it down a notch or two.

Why use a bolt instead of a regular piece of small bar stock?
