Model No. 4 Tru-Bal™ BATTLE BLADE Throwing Knife by Stephen D. McEvoy

The Model No. 4 Tru-Bal Battle Blade stays true to the heritage of Tru-Bal throwing knives.

It is hand-crafted of super-tough, especially tempered spring steel with extended tang to take up the shock of throwing. Handle slabs are made of durable vulcanized fibre, held firmly in place by heavy rivets.

This combat weapon is a combination fighting, hunting, survival and throwing knife.

But here’s what makes the Battle Blade different:

Firstly, the back of the blade tapers toward the tip, giving the knife an aggressive appearance.

Secondly, the handle widens toward the butt of the knife so it is easier to grip. (This knife will not accidentally slip out of your hand, but is still easy to throw.)

This rugged foot-long fighting knife represents a triumph in combat cutlery.

Overall length is 12″, width 1-1/2″, thickness 3/16″. Weighs 12 ounces.

Brown leather sheath and throwing instructions included.

This knife is brand new from the factory. It is handmade by Stephen D. McEvoy, son of the founder of the Tru-Balance Knife Company, Harry K. McEvoy.

  1. Hi,

    I purchased a #4 Battle Blade over 20 years ago and it is still going strong. I also purchased the “Defender” from a magician friend which had been designed originally for Mr. McEvoy’s son. Both are great knives and still a fantastic pieces 20 years later. I am happy to see Tru-Bal is still around. It would be nice to see the prices posted on the site.

  2. Just received my new #4 Battle Blade, and proceeded to learn how to throw it. We had already fabricated a target, which was ready and waiting out behind the house. Being new to the sport of throwing, it will take some time to become proficient, but the instant gratification of a good “stick” has got me hooked. My sons are interested as well, so I see more throwing knives in our future! I am very impressed with the quality of this product.
