The KA-BAR ThunderHorse Thrower is the first throwing knife in KA-BAR’s catalogue. It’s a big, beefy competition grade throwing knife designed by International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame Inductee, Karen Jones – owner and operator of ThunderHorse Blades. It’s also an American-made thrower that’s almost entirely customizable, and you can get one for about $53.
The ThunderHorse Thrower has a black coated 10.25” 1095 Cro Van clip point with 57-58 HRC. That’s nice because it gives more than enough strength to the blade, without becoming too brittle. It weighs about 1.25 lbs and has an overall length of 15.625”. All that means this knife has not only some heft to it. It also has a great forward balance which is great for its purpose.
This amazing knife is also infinitely customizable. The handles have two pre-drilled rivet holes which allows for a tremendous amount of customization. You can literally use almost any handle material you want, or you could leave it unhandled. The choice is yours.
Finally, the blade of this knife is unsharpened. If you wanted to use this knife as a regular knife, or if you wanted to sharpen the edge, you can absolutely do so.
