What is the story of the knife?
These have a great feel to them possessing nice heft, but they're far from the lightest thing on the market. This may mean they hang too heavily on the belt for some people as all three sit in the same single pouch. I didn't buy from this site, so I can't say if the complete failure of my sheath (the leather de-laminated and began to tear within 5 hours of being on a belt) is a common problem or not. For those who don't like all their knives to touch in the sheath, a new sheath is recommended anyway. The handle cord does cut easily. While there are aesthetic and textural differences depending on whether the cord is on or off, I've found it to have negligible or no impact on the quality of the throws. Regarding size of the knives, I'm a 5'4" female and my husband is 6'3". We both like these blades for the balance, weight, and versatility. The handle grips well, with or without the cord, for mundane tasks as well as slides smoothly for throwing. I've even used the blades for some casual jobs like cutting back a vine at the edge of my property and opening plastic packaging. The black coating seems tough so far and they hold a reasonable edge versus plastic/PVC, wood, and earth. Expect a few dings and scratches if they impact concrete too often, though (duh). All in all, I'd recommend these any day of the week to a thrower or to anyone who likes to carry a multi-purpose knife and throws as a hobby.
My son picked these out for his dad for Christmas We have used them a few times and everything is fine with them. My guys are pleased with them so that is all that mattered to me
I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of the knives!
It has great balance, and it hits the target almost every time. The Soldiers and I have a great time with it!
Knives where sharp sturdy but a little to small but good stater, good purchase.
Overall its the great tool set. The only one thing is when I practice and presumably making a progress on target trowing, if 2-3 knives are laid too close to each other they cut the wrapping cord on the handles quite easy. I think its better be some relatively thin/thick plastic/rubber patties on each side of a handle, at least it makes it harder to incidentally poke or cut during exercise. Although, I don't see any reason to have a handle to be wrapped in cord. It has no grip anyway.
It is way too light to throw.
Knife bent on a wood target first day I threw them.
