Tru-Bal West Catalog from 1984

1984 Tru-Bal West Catalog

In 1984 Harry McEvoy struck a deal to sell off two or three models from the Tru-Balance Knife Company to a company in Oklahoma called Tru-Bal West. The models they took over from Harry were the Model No. 1 PROFESSIONAL, the Model No. 3 THROWING BOWIE and a modified Model No. 80 SUPER-PRO with the wings cut off that they re-dubbed the Model No. 82 INDIAN LANCEHEAD throwing knife.

I wrote them and asked them to become a wholesale customer of theirs but right around that time I ended up going on to other things than selling throwing knives.

Here is the catalog they sent me…

Right now I am thinking of trying to get in touch with them and see if it would still be possible to purchase their business (which I do not think is current) so that I could operate under Tru-Bal West and start producing these three models again. Wouldn’t that be nice!
