  1. I bought my first real throwing knife, a Tru-balance sport-pro, and Harry McEvoy’s how to knife throwing book more that 20 years ago. Although I never met the man in person he was always nice enough to enclose a little personal note in his orders. My father and i used to throw kitchen knives and an old WWII bayonet he brought back from the war. Once I threw a McEvoy knife I was hooked forever.


  2. i would love to order a set of your knives…but everytime i look up your knives im unable to find a price anywheres!!! try to fix that problem and im sure you will have a die hard fan!!!peace…

  3. Hey Tony!

    I’m currently not selling individual knives.


  4. I am a knife admirer and I have owned many kind over time. I bought a hibben throwing axe many years ago which I still own. I was viewing top gun on TV and they were throwing axes. I took Hibben out into my back yard and I consistently stuck it in a tree off my deck. My interest was peaked. So, I have been devouring info. from the web. Your model #94 is one that I am interested in. I would like to acquire it. Please tell me how I can do that and at what price.
