MEBA: Throwing Knife is one of two blades made by Croatian MEBA factory originally produced measuring tools.

The conceptual design solution was made by Colonel Ivan Pavičić in 1993. Same year production started. In total there was made few hundreds of this throwing knives.

They were made on the initiative of the Directorate of Intelligence Affairs of the Croatian Armed Forces General Staff (ObU GSOSRH).

This is actually folding shuriken. Soldiers got these throwing knives to throw them and have a fun. I did not find any record of this throwing knives were every used in actual combat.
