This thrower is often referred to as 1st Generation. It is lighter, smaller, more compact than the larger 2nd and 3rd generation Hibben throwing knives. Whereas those knives have heft this knife is elegant. It is a Hibben so it is balanced and well made but this is more of a real hunting knife with perfect throwing qualities. If I had to choose which set of throwers to take with me to Armageddon, this would be the set.
The original Hibben throwing knife, based on Gil's own karate knife design, also doubles as a functional hunting knife. Each stainless steel knife is perfectly balanced to assure uniform rotation when thrown properly. The knives come in a leather belt sheath. The most popular and most imitated throwing knife on the market today.
