The Cold Steel Templar is a specialized throwing tool made for modern sport or competition throwers. Designed by custom bladesmith Dave Baker, the Templar is inspired by an ancient historical throwing axe known as a Hurlbat. Made of one solid piece of tough spring tempered carbon steel, the Templar is fun to throw and easy to use. When it comes to “sticking” potential, it’s the next best thing to a shuriken or throwing star, landing with a satisfying “thunk” over and over again! With an axe-style head, top and back spikes and a tapered spiked handle, it hits hard at almost any distance and rotation, and thanks to its head-heavy balance it is capable of being thrown even over extended distances.
