late 1970s Louisville KY
The Blossom folding throwing star was originally created in the late 1970s to early 1980s.
Gil didn't make many of them but he did make a few that fit into a pocket of the sheaths of a few larger bowie knives.
He also made 3-4 styles total and a special gold plated one he was going to present to Mr. T at a knife show.
This is only stamped Hibben Knives on the center brass ring
