The H & B Forge Ultimate Camp Knife was originally designed to be an overall camp knife that could be used for making kindling, chopping, cutting, throwing, etc. And it does all of those things very well. But it turns out it is an excellent throwing knife as well! We have had it available for a couple of years now so several people have been throwing it for quite awhile. They just rave about it and swear it is the best throwing knife they have ever thrown. It weighs about 1:41 lbs. The overall length is 15 inches, the blade is 9.5 inches. The blade is 3/16 inch thick and 2 inches wide at the widest part of the blade.
