Model No. 6 Tru-Bal™ RIFLEMAN Throwing Knife by Stephen D. McEvoy

In the early days of America, when colonists were fighting for their independence from the oppressive British government, survival was the order of the day.

Most colonists were armed with two weapons: a rifle and a knife.

In those days, rifles were often unreliable. You might get off one shot… if you were lucky. Misfires were common.

In such cases, a colonist’s knife became his primary weapon for defending himself.

The Tru-Bal Rifleman’s throwing knife stays true to its history. The straight blade makes it perfect for hunting, fishing, and various survival needs.

And the 13 1/2″ blade is long enough to kill a man in hand-to-hand combat, as was often done during the Revolutionary War.

Of course, the Tru-Bal Rifleman is different from its predecessors in one important way: it has been designed as a throwing knife, and can be thrown equally well by the handle or the blade.

All of which has made the Rifleman a very popular knife with the nation’s muzzle-loading enthusiasts.

The Rifleman is hand-made out of tempered spring steel. And the handle slabs are made of tough vulcanized fiber, secured by extra-heavy rivets. In sum, it is a rugged knife fit for true American patriots.

The Rifleman is 13 1/2″ overall, 1 1/2″ wide and 3/16″ thick. It weighs 14 ounces and comes with a durable, heavy-duty leather sheath to protect the blade.
