I really like the black stacked leather. It’s almost an instant vintage used look to the handle.
Hess Tiburon. In Redwood Burl, on an old redwood fence board, with redwood leaves scattered about, under a redwood tree, in Redwood City.
Can you tell I like redwoods?
Love the Tiburon. Don’t have one in Redwood Burl yet, might have to remedy that.
Aaaaannd..... thanks to this picture, I just ordered another Tiburon in stacked leather. You all are a bunch of enablers.
Old Marbles and Kabar and Western knives have such gravitas. Hess is right there with them.
Don't tell my wife.
So.. is anyone gonna give up their secret spot for finding recent Hess knives in stock? I’ve kept my eye out for a Tiburon or Muley for a while and they have seemed to be out everywhere I’ve checked.
The store I ordered from does not appear to be a sponsored dealer here, so I'm not going to post a website.
Since Great Eastern Cutlery makes their blade blanks, many of the GEC dealers also carry Hess knives as well. I've had good luck going through the GEC dealer list on their website, being sure to check the smaller dealers, and searching for Hess knives through the GEC links.
Good luck on your hunt!
I'm curious if Hess has stopped making them or if they're on a temporary hiatus. I have been waiting for a leather handle tiburon to show up and I feel like stock has only dwindled in the sites I watch that carry them.
I saw a several new knives added by the site where I got mine. I thought a Tiburon was among them.
I think this was it.
Not always been a fan of these type/style knives, but man that's sharp.
Took the Tiburon to the mountains last weekend, hoped for an epic break-in while hiking a sequoia grove in the Sierras.
Nope - used an SAK for literally everything.
But today, finally giving it some use, cutting' snacks for the kiddos.
Andy Hess does wonderful work, just like the old classics only possibly a bit better! I like the hidden tang/ barrel nut models best, but can order any style/handle material.
Hess makes great knives on GEC blades of traditional design.
Kinfolks K380 and Hess Hunter.
Kinfolks 395 and Hess Whitetail.
I gave away the Hess Whitetail above to a coworker for his son. Later R. Redden gave me a Hess Pioneer in maple and stag.
I happened to see Hess must have made a run of knives. Looks like the place I bought mine from has more on the shelf. The Tiburon is one I’d like to handle. Looks to be a good woods knife but maybe a bit more robust than I care for when field dressing and skinning game.
I have seen the Muley referred to as the mini Tiburon.
Hess knives are the s***. Here's my Whitetail:
