Does anyone here have this knife? Is it any good?
It certainly does look like what I would want in a thrower, but I'd like some opinions.

They are heavy, easily damaging the elbows as most want to throw good and hard with these.

If you get one or two, I'd suggest buiding up to speed until the arm and shoulder get used to throwing the weight.

It's not really a knife but cylindrical tapering at the ends.

Don't ask how I know. :(

If you're already able to throw an anvil, you don't need sharp points on it.

The nice part is that if you wear it concealed, it will counterbalance the weight of a small 12-guage shotgun and you'll never be without an anchor.

So it's a bit too heavy?
That may be a problem because I get beat by toddlers in arm wrestling. Seriously.

I picked up a 2 lb. jar of grape jelly to get a good feel of what it would be like throwing something of that weight over any distance. Heavy, but not to heavy.
It would be nice if Cold Steel made a Mini Torpedo that weighed just 1 lb.

I read in review that Cold Steel does make a lighter version of the Torpedo. I looked it up on google, but oddly It didn't show in the results. Has anyone else heard of this lighter Torpedo? Where could I buy it?
