CLASSIC, ORIGINAL version of the East Wind
We are known for making the best no-spin throwing knives in the world, and the North Wind and sister knife East Wind are our finest offerings. In the past decade, we have shipped many thousands of North Wind and East Wind knives to over fifteen countries, near and far. Each knife is cut from virgin tool steel plate or bar, heat treated, then hand-ground one at a time. The complete build process is outlined on our technical info page.
The East Wind started in 2008 as a custom order for Master Houzan Suzuki based on his sketch, which in turn was based on traditional Japanese tools and weapons. This classic version of the East Wind is essentially a heavier interpretation of Master Suzuki’s design. Now available in ultra-tough 630 stainless steel, in two weight/width options – lightweight (original) and mid-weight. The narrow lightweight option is slender and spike-like. The wider mid-weight version feels more like a knife.
