Original TRU-BAL USA Professional Throwing Knife – vintage 1960th-1970th Harry McEnvoy model 1. Set of 2 knives; great overall condition, considering the age.

I have a pair of ever-popular and rare Tru-Balance circa 1960th-1970th Model 1 “Professional Throwing Knives” for sale in great overall condition. Tru-Bal Knives company was established in 1949 by Harry (Mac) McEnvoy – the legendary American pioneer in high-quality throwing knives and practical fighting knives. McEnvoy-made Tru-Bal knives are considered by many to be the finest throwing knives in the world. McEnvoy is probably the best-known American throwing knives maker. He wrote numerous books and articles on the subject and was elected to the American Knifemakers Guild Hall of Fame for his contributions to the knifemaking art. Interestingly, a lot of Tru-Bal knives were used in Vietnam during the war as “private purchase” fighting knives. McEnvoy even designed several models specifically for hand-to-hand fighting; all of them are super-hot collectibles today.

The”Pro-Knife” model is one of the best throwing knives out there; originals in better grades are pretty hard to find nowadays. These specimens are only slightly used, they are in better than average condition for the type. The edges have not been re-sharpened; a couple of minor nicks are noted for accuracy. Solid full-tang construction; these knives were made of a specially-tempered spring steel. Each knife is about 13-3/8”/ 34 cm overall; the blades are about 8-3/4”/ 22.5 cm long, about 5 mm thick. Black fiber handle scales secured by 2 steel/brass pins; one knife is initialed JBM / M on the handle. A few surface rust spots on blades and a couple of impact dings on fiber scales are noted for accuracy. All handle parts are solid with no play; there are no sheaths.

This attractive TRU-BAL USA Professional Throwing Knife set has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, it is in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos. For collectible knives and edged weapons Argocoins accepts payments via credit cards, personal checks drawn from US-based accounts, certified US-based bank checks, and money orders.
