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 Steel® 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.

Multipurpose tool
I have it for 5 years. Didn't use it much for throwing, mostly for camping and hunting. The blade steel is good as any carbon steel, can be easily honed to a razor sharpness and keeps the edge longer than any stainless steel blade. The paracord handle may be good for throwing, but I didn't find it very comfortable for other tasks, so I took off the paracord and made a handle of oak wood boards fixed with bolts and nuts. The most amazing thing about this blade is that it can be used as a spear head due to its thickness and shape. I can make a spear fixing it to a shovel or hoe handle with two wood screws.

Interesting knife -- until it broke
My knife snapped in half the fourth or fifth time I took it out to throw. It hit the log target flat and broke. I have that happen before with other Cold Steel throwers.It's an interesting knife. I like the design but I could have done without the wrapping. I haven't decided whether to try another one. If I do, the wrapping will go. The sharp blade should be dulled for throwing.

Not just a Throwing Knife
The True Flight Thrower by Cold Steel is NOT just a Throwing Knife, I mean this blade is a beast!! I had used it for bushcraft for a while and they're amazing, owing to its nature of being a Throwing Knife it's actually very durable for most if not all survival/bushcraft tasks, it features a 5mm thick 1055 mid carbon steel true full tang blade, It's not like most knives with rat tail tang this particular model has a full size tang which is considered as the toughest blade design all the time, therefore batoning and chopping are no match for this blade it's like a mini machete!!, add to that the steel used on this blade is very shock resistant according to Knife Steel Composition Chart, also the sheath it came with is as solid as the knife itself, it was tight the first time you put the knife in but it will eventually break in, Overall, This knife is really awesome for the price you can throw it, use it for survival or camping etc, Cold Steel did a brilliant job on this throwing knife I think they didn't even find out that they had also created a tough multipurpose knife at the same time they created the True Flight Thrower!.
