CS80TFTC: True Flight Thrower
Cold Steel

At one time or another probably everyone has enjoyed the sound of a perfectly thrown knife as it "thunks" into a target. The only problem is finding a good knife that can stand up to the stress and strain of repeated throws.

Sure, there are a lot of throwing knives on the market but they all seem to be made out of cheap thin steel that's easily bent, or even worse, stainless steel that breaks. That's why Cold SteelĀ® has designed the ultra-versatile True Flight Thrower. It may be the toughest, strongest throwing knife ever made.

The Thrower's 3/16" thick blade is ground to a strong spear point to withstand tens of thousands of throws. For versatility, knife has a strong utility edge that's plenty-sharp yet safe enough (with care) for those who prefer the "blade hold" throwing technique. Each knife is given a handsome, dark oxide finish to protect the blade from rust and eliminate glare.
For the steel, U.S. Premium high carbon is used with a custom heat treatment process to ensure a hard yet resilient blade that will "bounce back" undamaged from any throw. Plus, for comfort and versatility, we have wrapped the handle in five feet of parachute cord.

Great bushcraft knife and "micro-machete", easy to modify
There's a system of creeks and retention ponds that runs behind my apartment and into a couple of nearby neighborhoods, filled with little hidey-holes that I often retreat to, usually at night, when I need to cool off and be away from people. This is what I take with me to use as a bushcraft knife and small machete, mostly to trim branches, weeds, vines and such. It's small enough for me to carry concealed when I have to (both since I live around sheeple who are afraid of even moderately-sized blades, and because the six-inch edge is just slightly over the legal limit where I am), but big enough to go through small (1.5" or so) branches with two or three chops or baton hits. It's STURDY. The steel is nice and resilient and it's easy for me to keep a machete-like (paper-cutting but no sharper) edge on it. The paracord handle is comfortable and has had no durability issues in the six months I've had it. Even if it were to come undone, it would be easy to buy or make G-10 or wooden scales for it. In terms of the purpose I use it for, I'd prefer to have some kind of hand retention device, but that's not a deal breaker, especially when you consider how easy this knife is to modify and that it's marketed as a thrower. I intend to drill a lanyard hole through the pommel. I modified the sheath by cutting off the useless retention strap, which did nothing except get in the way of sheathing the knife, and adding a paracord loop so I can quickly slip it over my shoulder for carry without worrying about a belt. I received mine as a gift but I would definitely buy another one for $25.

High Quality knife, takes a beating
This knife is excellent for throwing. I bought it along with a few Gil Hibbens, and it is definitely my favorite knife. The weight makes it easy to throw consistently. Even if you miss, I'd be more concerned about what the knife hits rather than the knife itself; it's downright indestructible. I marked "Blade Sharpness" as a con because it's too sharp. I use it as a throwing knife, and I don't want to slice my hand open every time I throw it with a blade grip, so I had to grind that down a bit. The paracord handle leaves a bit to be desired. I find that when I grip and pull it out of the (low quality) sheath, the cord gets bunched up in some areas and pushed apart in others, however it's very easy to readjust it. As I mentioned before, the nylon sheath is kinda crappy; the loose strap got torn off within a day or two of throwing, but thankfully the sheath is tight enough on the blade that it wasn't actually necessary. Despite the minimal drawbacks, I would definitely recommend this knife to anyone: beginner or expert.
