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.

Model No. 4 Tru-Bal™ BATTLE BLADE Throwing Knife by Stephen D. McEvoy

The Model No. 4 Tru-Bal Battle Blade stays true to the heritage of Tru-Bal throwing knives.

It is hand-crafted of super-tough, especially tempered spring steel with extended tang to take up the shock of throwing. Handle slabs are made of durable vulcanized fibre, held firmly in place by heavy rivets.

This combat weapon is a combination fighting, hunting, survival and throwing knife.

But here’s what makes the Battle Blade different:

Firstly, the back of the blade tapers toward the tip, giving the knife an aggressive appearance.

Secondly, the handle widens toward the butt of the knife so it is easier to grip. (This knife will not accidentally slip out of your hand, but is still easy to throw.)

This rugged foot-long fighting knife represents a triumph in combat cutlery.

Overall length is 12″, width 1-1/2″, thickness 3/16″. Weighs 12 ounces.

Brown 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.
