We really don’t get into throwing knives here at TTAK. Part of that is because they’re not really ‘knives’, by which we usually think of ‘cutting (and occationally stabbing) implements made of edge-sharpened metal.’ It’s also because I totally suck at them.

I’ve got an in-law who’s a whiz at throwing knives and he’s tried to show me how to do it, but unfortunately his teaching skill level is way below my ineptitude level. No worries; if I wanted to blow a C-note I bet I could catch up with him fairly quickly with BudK’s $100 bag of 100 throwing knives.

That’s not a typo.

Of course they probably suck. They’re probably made of soldered soup cans, with a hardness of HRC 35-38. They’re probably too dull to cut zucchini with.

But they’re only a buck each! If they sold them by the box of 20, they’d be cheaper than Wal-Mart .30-06 ammo. At this price, they’re barely worth retrieving. Of course, they might be barely worth retrieving anyway, but at least you’d get a hundred practice throws in before you walked away.

    I spent about 10 minutes throwing my SOG Aegis at a pumpkin last year. It’s still holding up well. Only has the minor blade play that all assisted SOGs have

      How’s the pumpkin?

        Dead, after suffering multiple stab woulds and gunshots

    I used to do it when I was younger, and I ordered from BudK too. The knives they sell are mostly too brittle, too small, and too light.

    The last knife I threw was one I carved from an old Harbor Freight machete blade. It was springy, flexible, and of a proper heft.

    It’s great fun when you can stick them consistently, but I dropped it in favor of archery.

    I also tried throwing back when I was younger. Several different styles of throwing knives before I found that the M1 bayonet was frigging perfect.
