Custom Throwers From Dave Jester (aka "Half Spin")

I was lucky enough to meet Dave Jester in Austin, Texas this year (2005) at the Central US Knife Throwing Championships! Most competitors would eat out every meal of the day so we all got to know each other when we grazed through the plates of food at some of the "All-You-Stuff-Into-Your-Greedy-Little-Mouth" establishments! :-)


This is a knife Dave made for me (before the handle slabs went on). All the holes are to get the knife to balance at center point.

Here the knife is with leather slabs on for handles. According to Dave you throw this one upside down... the clip is flat so it stops's rotation and transfers energy in so it sticks deep.

He made it for throwing in the mountain man events like the 4 golf tees around the business card "deal"... a small point so not to cut the rubber band.

Here is a closer look at the rivets. Dave used rivets with small stars on them. A nice little touch to add some character to the knife!

Above are some knife blanks. A few hours with Dave in the workshop though and they take on a whole new style!

Here is a 14.5 inch long, 3/16 inch thick, old style bowie with curly maple handle slabs!

Below are 3 pics of a knife Dave made me for my collection. It is like a progress report. Each new step, Dave would take a picture and send it on over to me!

Here is the knife right after the curly maple handle slabs were fitted.
In this pic the slabs have been rounded and have one coat of stain on them...

And here they have 2 more coats of stain on them, and also a few coats of clear! A pretty slick knife if you ask me!

To contact Dave about purchasing a custom design just send him an email: Dave Jester.



If you have any pictures of your own custom designs you'd like to share, you can send them to: Scott Gracia
