Hello all. I am a 57 year old guy who has recently rekindled an old childhood hobby. Throwing sharp stuff at soft stuff. I currently only throw full spin and half spin. I am fairly decent with that. I am trying to learn no spin and skanf for my go to throwing style. I dont think my Gil Hibbens Gen-X or my S&W cheapos are a great no spin knife and mine are getting pretty beat up. I want to pick up a set of Adam Celadin Acejet throwers. I am unsure of the characteristics of each and which one would be the best fit for a new no spinner. Anybody got any words for me?

Personally, I like longer knives (12 to 13 inches) than the Acejets, but the Excaliburs, Bowies and Vipers (at 9.46") are closest to what I throw. If they were cheaper, I'd get some of them to try out but I'm not gonna spend that much on a whim without having thrown them. But I know Adam (the designer) and Adam throws all of them well. Well, Adam throws everything well.

They are VERY similar.
Knife -------- Appache --------------------- Osetr
length ------ 9.46" -------------------------- 9.38" or 10"
Weight ----- 9.03 Oz ----------------------- 8.4 Oz or 8.82 Oz
Price ------- varies by website
Designed - Adam Celadin--------------- V.S. Kosrov - Kizlyar (Russian design)
Made in ---Czech/Bohemia (Acejet) ------------- China (CAS Hanwei)
The Acejet Appache has a straight spine, Osetr has a slight curve,
The Osetr specs are different depending on which website you find info on.

Appache available on multiple sites, Osetr out of stock on most sites.

Thanks for the reply. I only saw osetr on one website and it said it was Czech made, didn’t know these were made in China.
