Aliens Combat Knife
Hudson's Knife: Gerber Mark II Combat Knife
Exactly Like the One Used by Hudson in Aliens


"Bishop, do the thing with the knife."

—Bill Paxton as private Hudson (Aliens 1986).

There are so many memorable moments in the movie Aliens that it's hard to pick one over the other. Nevertheless, one of the early and tension-creating sequences of this classic sci-fi action film is the "knife game" scene. Who can forget Hudson's horrified look as Bishop navigates the razor-sharp blade of a Gerber Mark II combat knife look-alike around the petrified soldier's hand at lightning speed.

Production of this classic knife ran from 1967 to 2000; a limited 1500-unit run in 2002; and once again in full production starting in 2008. Hopefully, Gerber will continue to make it forever, but who knows what will happen in the future?

You will receive the same style of knife seen in the photographs below, which is nearly identical to the one used in the movie Aliens (minor details, like the serrations, have changed over the years). This knife comes with a box, nylon sheath, and its original packaging. The Gerber Mark II you will receive is brand new and unused. The retail price is $115.00 and includes a lifetime warranty.
