About Throwing Knives

The art of knife throwing evolved from the savannas of Central Africa where the technique was used in hunting and warfare. In comparison to standard knives, throwing knives do not generally have handles. Knife throwing is becoming a popular hobby in the United States with competitions staged by the American Knife Throwers Alliance. When shopping for throwing knives, you should look for a metal that has enough weight for easy penetration into the target. A center-balanced knife enables you to execute a throw from a grip on either end. Longer implements like 10" throwing knives offer greater control for more experienced practitioners. Beginners may want to use 7" throwing knives. If you are just starting out, buy several knives because even the most durable steel takes some punishment as you learn. Reliable eBay sellers offer a wide selection of knives suitable for beginners and experienced throwers.
