The Upriser is our latest design in the Storm/Hunter design family – preceded by the Storm Hunter, Storm Rider, Sky Hunter, and Storm Raider. This is an experimental/collector’s-edition model, not a no-spin performance knife*. This mid-size design is intended for no-spin and half-spin throwing.
This knife has a neutral balance and a front and rear guard, which means your finger placement options are intentionally limited. The purpose of this design is to allow you to explore the challenges of throwing a knife with a guard and a neutral balance.
*No-spin performance knives have a handle-heavy balance and a relatively simple shape that doesn’t limit finger placement options. These knives work best for most people, especially beginners.
