I was just outside throwing my new Brokenfeather tomahawk from Joe Darrah. He just sent it to me and it’s a beauty! He made it to match the “Bullseye Seeker” mountain man bowie he made me several months ago. Since I don’t have any Tru-Bal throwing knives with leather handles (yet) I used this knife in New Mexico for my first mountain man style throwing competition where I took second place in the amateur division. Not bad for my first official throw!
Here you can see the throw I made not 20 minutes ago. A three point throw with the knife and a two point throw with the hawk. I’m still getting use to it over the 3J hawk I use. From now on I’ll use Joe’s!
You might ask what the connection is with Joe Darrah and Brokenfeather knives and Tru-Bal knives. Well years ago when Joe was learning how to make knives like these he spent a lot of time learning from Harry McEvoy. Harry was very nice about answering Joe’s questions and critiquing his designs through correspondence they wrote back-and-forth over many years. Joe learned a lot from Harry and was also a very avid Tru-Bal collector for many years.
Thanks for the knife and hawk Joe!
