The Guide Series Skinner is a sleek and classically designed knife that both looks gorgeous and performs well.

The Guide Series is designed by Wes Hibben, son of Gil Hibben, Browning’s first hunting knife designer. Wes Hibben shaped his future at the age of eight when he built and sold his first knife. He learned the craft from his father, the legendary Gil Hibben, who has designed blades for hunting, survival, and the silver screen for more than 65 years. Gil is also the man behind the very first Browning knives that appeared in their 1969 product catalog. Growing up, Wes spent every minute he could in his father’s shop learning the knife making craft. As an adult, Wes took his skills North to the great state of Alaska, and many of his edged creations are inspired by his personal experiences spent in the wilds as a hunter. His experience as a knifemaker, along with his passion for hunting and the outdoors, have culminated in the Guide Series, the next generation of knives to share both the Hibben and Browning names.
