Nelson Cooper throwing knife – an unusually large handmade piece, heavy all-steel construction with unique brazed bronze band handle. RARE type in UNUSED condition.
Excellent quality large throwing knife handmade by John Nelson Cooper in the late 1960th – a great find! John N. Cooper (1906-1987) was one of the founding members of the American Knifemakers’ Guild and one of the greatest American knifemakers of all time; his throwing knives are especially hard to find.
The knife about 12-5/8″ / 32 cm overall, the blade is about 5-7/8″ / 15 cm. This knife is virtually indestructible piece of solid stainless steel with the satin finish. The upper part of the handle has a unique brazed bronze band on one side; the bronze is excellent with original golden-honey patina. The handle is about 6.3 mm (!!) thick; the blade is fairly sharp; the tip is intact; excellent overall condition. This big boy weights about 1 lb 0.4 oz / 0.466 kg; it is very well-balanced and is perfect for target throwing.
Very interesting and certainly one-of-the-kind vintage handmade Nelson Cooper throwing knife in rare unused condition. This rare knife will make a great addition to any collection.
