Quite a few throwing knives do not come with sheaths. Even if they do, it is not good for the blade to store it in the leather sheath for any period of time.

Model No. 94 Tru-Bal™ Mountain Bowie Throwing Knife by Stephen D. McEvoy

The Mountain Bowie is the biggest knife in the Tru-Bal line-up. It is also the most impressive.

When you hold this knife and feel its heft, you might be tempted to quote Crocodile Dundee: “That’s not a knife. THIS is a knife.”

Because of its weight and shaped handle, the Moutain Bowie is an excellent heavyweight handle thrower. It is also an ideal outdoor survival knife. With accurate throws, this could easily make dinner out of small game.

The Mountain Bowie is made from specially tempered spring steel to stand up to a lifetime of rugged, all-purpose use. It is approximately 15 inches long and weighs about 21 ounces. It is 2 1/4″ wide at the blade and 3/16″ thick.

This knife is one of only two Tru-Bal knifes that have a comfortable anatomic handle. The sturdy vulcanized fiber handle slabs are solidly riveted to resist the shock of throwing.

Durable leather sheath and throwing instructions are 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.

Model No. 91 Tru-Bal™ STINGER BOWIE Throwing Knife by Stephen D. McEvoy

The Tru-Bal Stinger Bowie is the culmination of more than 40 years of knife making and throwing.

It is the finest knife of its type ever offered to America’s sportsmen, and four decades of experience went into designing this superb weapon.

The “Stinger” blends both form and function unlike any other throwing knife. The deep notch and finger guard at the base of the blade give the “Stinger” a distinct but attractive appearance. And yet the knife is specially designed to be hurled by the blade or the handle equally well.

This knife is one of only two Tru-Bal knifes that have a comfortable anatomic handle, which makes it easy to hold and throw. Few people own the Stinger Bowie, so you can be proud knowing that you own a truly unique knife.

The “Stinger” is 13 1/2″ overall, 2″ wide, 3/16″ thick, and weighs 15 ounces. It is the perfect length and weight for maximum control and accuracy.

This all-purpose hunting, camping, survival, and throwing knife is built to withstand a lifetime of rugged use.

Durable 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.
