Knives used for throwing are almost always one-piece, rather than the traditional knives that have a handle manufactured separately from the blade. The purpose of this design is to create a durable knife with a balanced distribution of weight. Compared to pocket knives, the steel used to manufacture a throwing knife should generally be more malleable and less prone to breakage.
A few tips whilst using Throwing Knives:
You need to be very careful what you throw them at as
we can't warrant knives that break because we cannot be sure customers aren't throwing them at inappropriate and unrecommended surfaces.
I strongly suggest soft wood (planks) or layers of cardboard.
The best wood is that similar to what is used on railways. It is best to
be full body length and reach around 25cm above eye level and 1m wide, to compensate for the unavoidable stray throws. Please avoid throwing them at trees, although this is thought to be common act; it is almost guaranteed to break your knives on such a hard surface. If the only wood you can find is from a leafed tree, leave it out in the rain as the knives will stick better to softened wood. Throwing at a hard target (like trees) will also damage/bend your knife in instances where the knife hits the target vertically.
