A former Perth bikie has been sentenced to more than six years in jail for slashing a workmate across the throat with a kitchen knife.

Mark Raymond Hinchliffe, 51, stood trial accused of the attempted murder of his colleague at Hinchliffe's North Yunderup house in May 2011.

He was acquitted of attempted murder but found guilty of the lesser charge of causing grievous bodily harm to the 44-year-old victim.

The man survived the attack but suffered a deep laceration to the left side of his neck.

The Supreme Court heard Hinchliffe deliberately and consciously struck the man with the knife.

The colleague had earlier armed himself with a bottle after the pair had been involved in a drunken argument.

Hinchliffe is a former member of the Coffin Cheaters bikie gang.

The court was told he has a violent criminal history, including seriously assaulting his former wife, who is now serving a life jail term for murdering her lover.

Hinchliffe was sentenced to six years and three months in jail.

With time already served, his earliest release date is March 2016.
