Model No. 91 Stinger Bowie Throwing Knife Serial Number 57

Tru-Bal Serial No. 57 Front

Stephen McEvoy told me that this is an early version of the Model No. 91 Stinger Bowie throwing knife made by Harry McEvoy in late 1991 or early 1992 at the latest. Sometimes Harry would put serial numbers on the first 50 but certainly not more than 100 knives when he released a new model. He evidently stamped serial numbers on the first 100 of the Stinger Bowie. This is number 57.

I picked this knife up in 2011 from Dave Jester who purchased it from Bobby Branton when he sold his famous collection. This knife is a part of that collection.

The sheath was no help in identifying this model since it is not the original one that came with it. It is for a Model No. 76. I had to ask Stephen McEvoy to find out what this knife was.

Here is a picture that Bobby Branton took when he was selling his collection…this is the second knife from the right…

The one next to it is identical but marked with a 13 so that confirmed it was not a model number after all, but rather a serial number.

And here is another picture from Bobby Branton of this knife…
