Mail-Order and WEB Catalogs with Throwing Knives
and other Throwing or Related Weapons


One of our most significant resources is this list of knife company catalogs. These are 800 numbers that won't work outside the US, but I am trying to get the straight numbers from every company.

Sunshine Knife Outlet (888) 556-2572
Now a subsidiary of Bailiwick Enterprises, proprietor John Bailey
240 E. Bahama Rd.
Florida U.S.A. 32708-3504
Also at: (407) 696-9119
Fax: (407) 696-7255
For various personal reasons, Curtis Lovejoy sold SKO to John Bailey, long time knife thrower, video producer, and throwing knife designer.
Curtis' catalog was very interesting. I'd never seen so many high quality throwing knives, axes, and hawks in one place. Most new, some used. Prices are basically retail, some the same as the same product direct from the manufacturer, some a little higher, but all in all, a very extensive collection including Branton, Karp, McEvoy, and many, many others. This is not to say that everything in the catalog was high quality (though very much of it was), but for the throwers at least, lengths and weights were listed, so you could decide for yourself.

The new proprietor, John Bailey, hosts a Bailiwick Enterprises web site that will one day contain an on-line version of the catalog. Bookmark it and check back from time to time. He will also re-issue the print catalog, but we'll have to wait a while for that as he must get the business in order for himself first.
In the mean time, we wish Curtis and his family well and John all good fortune in his new enterprise.

Target Knives and Throwing Knives. These two sites seem to be related, but I'm not sure how yet. In any case, they have a very unusual looking collection of interesting throwers, and all of them come in two types of steel and in two lengths, the longer of which is AKTA legal!

Atlanta Cutlery (800) 883-0300 - Good catalog, reasonable prices.

The Edge Company (800) 732-9976 - Interesting catalog. More then just blade weapons, and a few strange throwers. Lots of electronic equipment for surveylance, fantasy knives, etc. Throwers are not all that great.. Mostly too small and too light, but some very good for indoor practice.

Gorilla & Sons (800) 246-7455 - Very similar to the Edge Co. but without all the spy stuff, and more heavily focused on optics (lots of great NV scopes and binoculars), and a few other tools (like grinders). Many of the same throwers as Edge, but prices seem a bit better. Also a 15 inch "self-healing" knife target for about $10. Also some radio's, air pistols, Pistol x-bows, etc. Can also be reached at: (360) 738-1761

BUD K Worldwide (800) 543-5061 Good collection of miscelaneous throwers, including Hibben, etc. Prices reasonable. Lots of other knives, lockpics, and other items. Something of a small cross between a couple of the other catalogs.
Mailing address at: P.O. Box 565, Moultrie, Georgia 31776
also at (912) 985-1667 outside the U.S.

Smokey Mountian Knife Works (800) 251-9306 - Good overall. Lowest prices, but not the largest collection of quality throwers. Number for non-U.S. callers is: (615) 453-5871

Tiffin Knife Co. (800) 255-3841 - Big catalog, prices way too high!

Cold Steel / AKA Special Projects Co. (800) 255-4716 - a bit thin, but very high quality. Most prices too high, but their True Flight Throwers are OK for the price at about $20 each. Do NOT buy the "Warhead", it will just break at the junction between handle and blade, but the "boar spear" is supposed to be pretty good as is the reproduction of the "Spetsnaz throwing shovel". The reproduction of the "Viet Nam Tomahawk" is OK, but the handle cracks too easily in my opinion. I have no experience with their two bitted throwing axe.

A 700+ page catalog mostly having to do with black powder shooting supplies. A huge wealth of material. Does have a few pages of throwing knives, including a couple of Lowcountry (Branton) knives, and a number of others. Some I've not seen elsewhere. Catalog is $5. Certainly worth every penny if you're into the muzzle loading rifle set, or looking specifically for real throwing bowies in the $50 range!

This catalog has NO throwing knives. What they do have is devices, called SandFlex to CLEAN rust and other gunk off knives, even doing light filing I suppose. These things look like big erasers and come in various grit densities. Also various kinds of liquid and spray rust remover. Reasonable prices.


If anyone knows of any others, please pass numbers around - at least get them to me and I will distribute to the list. Also, we have discussed several knives appearing in these catalogs that one or more of us have. Black Jacks, Blazing Arrows, Fury 7000 (a Hibben look-alike), and Hibbens, come to mind. If any of you have any experience with others, please let us know what you think of them...
