My New Brokenfeather Tomahawk from Joe Darrah

3 points on the knife throw and 2 points on the hawk throw from five paces.

I was just outside throwing my new Brokenfeather tomahawk from Joe Darrah. He just sent it to me and it’s a beauty! He made it to match the “Bullseye Seeker” mountain man bowie he made me several months ago. Since I don’t have any Tru-Bal throwing knives with leather handles (yet) I used this knife in New Mexico for my first mountain man style throwing competition where I took second place in the amateur division. Not bad for my first official throw!

Model No. 4-A Tru-Bal™ BATTLE BLADE Throwing Knife by Harry K. McEvoy

Tru-Bal Model No. 4 BATTLE BLADE I Purchased on eBay

This is a Tru-Bal Model No. 4-A I won on eBay in February of 2009 from the same gentleman I purchased a Model No.70 from. I bid on it because I did not already have a Model No. 4 that was made by Harry. This model wasn’t being made in 1983 and 1984 when I was purchasing Tru-Bal throwing knives. The one that was being made then was the Model No. 4-B BATTLE BLADE COMBAT THROWER. So I had to have this one.

This is a Tru-Bal Model No. 70 I won on eBay in February of 2009. I bid on it because I did not already have a Model No. 70 that was made by Harry.

How Joe “Brokenfeather” Darrah Paints Throwing Knife Targets

I’ve recently met Joe Darrah of “Brokenfeather” knives over the magic of the internets. He was kind enough to share with me his process of painting throwing knife targets. He also sent me some great photos and he said I could share them with you.

I SUCK at Throwing Knives! Help Me Throwdini!

I built a target in my back yard a few weeks ago and started throwing knives again after 25 years off. Boy was I surprised at how few times I could stick the knife. It’s a lot harder than it looks…and it’s harder than I remembered. I went through my books and re-read all of the material but I wasn’t getting much better. So I decided to check out a few videos and see if I could find one that would help me.
