Designed by KJ Jones, member of the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame and the owner and operator of ThunderHorse Blades Handmade Custom Knives. Jones was inducted in 2013 to the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame. She is also a Wild West Kills Performer, Professional Horsewoman and Equine Performer. KJ brings her knowledge and expertise to KA-BAR as the designer of the ThunderHorse Thrower, a competition-size throwing knife.

The ThunderHorse Thrower is the only throwing knife in the KA-BAR lineup. This full tang thrower has a large clip point shape blade that is left unsharpened for safety. The knife will still deliver plenty of stick thanks in part to the 1 lb 3.8 oz weight.

The 9-1/2" black coated blade is made from 1095 Cro-Van steel and has a hardness of 57-58 Rc. The overall length measures 15-1/2". Made in the USA. Suggested Retail $70.00.

Please note that this knife does not come with a sheath.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.

KA-BAR is best known for their military production knives. They were chosen by the U.S. Marine Corp. as the primary knife producer for World War II. They also have traditional pocket knives, as well as many options for law enforcement.
