Harry K. McEvoy, founder of Tru-Balance Knife Co of Grand Rapids, Michigan started the AKTA in 1971.
The club grew to 1,200 members.
The BULLS EYE BUSTER was published for 22 issues before publication had to be suspended. With little help or facilities, it became too big a task to produce and mail.
In 1995, Bobby Branton, a friend of Harry's and a longtime knifemaker and thrower, with the blessings of Stephen McEvoy, son of the late Harry K. McEvoy, decided not to let the AKTA die.
Bobby vows to keep the AKTA alive for years to come.
