I’ve been looking for some time now at a lot of knife cases that would work for Tru-Bal throwing knives. I think I finally found the best one for holding anywhere from 1-6 throwing knives depending on the model. It’s the Maxpedition R-14 Razorshell knife case.
As you can see from the photo this case is just perfect for holding six Tru-Bal Model #79 SPORT-PROs. This keeps them protected and all in one place in between practices at home. It’s also perfect for taking your knives on the road with you to a tournament.
The Maxpedition RazorShells™ are protective cases that store anything else that will fit inside and require the highest level of protection. These bivalves are lined with two opposing layers of supple, non-absorbent, non-scratching faux shearling separated by 1/8” closed cell foam for shock resistance. Internal elastic bands provide additional security while external elastic bands retain a knife sheath or paperwork. The RazorShell cases open and close by a full length YKK-10 zipper with paracord pull. Transport using the integral heavy duty carry handle.
They come in a few sizes but the R-14 is perfect for Tru-Bal throwing knives. As you can see even though it barely fits, the Tru-Bal Model No. 94 MOUNTAIN BOWIE throwing knife, the largest knife in the line, does indeed fit.
If this case is overkill for your throwing knife, especially if you have one without a sheath, there is a more affordable E-14 Envelope case available.
One thing that you really need to see in the photos here is that on the outside of the case in the back there are two very strong black elastic straps. This allows you to zip up the throwing knife on the inside but put the leather case on the outside in those straps. For long term storage that will prevent the leather from tarnishing and pitting the blade. My old Tru-Bals would not have any rust or pits on them if I had these years ago! Just don’t do what I did and store them in their sheaths.
Internal dimensions: 14 in x 4.5 in
External empty dimensions: 14.5 in x 5 in x 1 in
Let me know what you think of these.
