Nothing feels better than launching a throwing knife toward a 4-inch bullseye and watching it firmly stick right in the middle. Knife throwing is as much of an art as it is a hobby because it requires concentration, practice and skill that will impress anyone in sight. While you can throw any knife at a target, it won't provide the precision and accuracy of a throwing knife specifically designed for the task.
Our selection of throwing knives has something for knife throwers of all levels and includes everything from throwing axes to throwing cards. If you're interested in becoming skilled in the art of knife throwing, check out our beginners guide to throwing knives for everything you need to know about getting started. Get in on the action with a throwing knife of your own.
Throwing Knife Safety
When learning to use your throwing knife, make sure that your practice area is located in a safe place. You should have a clear view of your surroundings in all directions, so if someone enters the area you can stop throwing your knife. Spectators are always welcome, but they should stand at least 10 feet behind you. Sometimes, a throwing knife can bounce back and could cause injury. And of course, never throw your knives at people or animals.
Nice knife set. Fun to throw at a darts block indoor...
These knives are great! They look good, they are balanced and travel nicely to the target. They also have enough weight to them that when they hit, they hit hard. If I was to say anything bad about them, it wouldn't be about the knives. I feel that United Cutlery could have gotten a more modern style sheath for such a good knife. Something that could be possibly mounted to a Molle Plate Carrier vest. They only come with some sheath that can be mounted on a dress belt, the loop isn't even large enough to go over a tactical pistol belt. But other than that, you will not be disappointed in these knives, they are worth every penny.
A novice to REAL knife throwing..an inductee into the Black Belt Hall of Fame as a 'Samurai'..BUT!!- that is with swords of varying length, balance, etc... Just rediscovered this throwing skill. Harder than l remembered as a teen, but these are 'real' throwers! This particular set of 3 from United Cutlery, is AWESOME! At first was concerned about length and weight. But for a re-learner or novice a GREAT set to begin. They are live double edged blade, with spear tip, [SHARP!!] and very sturdy. l started; missing 100% of say 1st 20 throws. Then l thought of weight, finesse in strength of throw, to flips per foot, etc...and l would like stress, like any other weapon, you must master your breathing with your tension in your 'throw'. The more you sync your breathing with your release, the more likely you'll be relaxed and 'throwing a knife with authority', vs, 'flinging a knife towards a hopeful target'. l tried handle, and blade approaches to 'see' what felt natural to me. Everyone says the edges should b dull. l disagree. You want a knife for throeing, accurately and sticking 100% of time. Which will take some some time! l highly recommend this set for any level of expertise. Sturdy enough for beginners, and perfect for any level up to advanced. The advanced thrower will find these short and light. But they will still love them. Perfect for conceal and carry. Be sure uou have a license to carry in your state. This is an awesome set. Get 2 sets for this price...and you can practice more, and retrieve less. sheath seems durable. l replaced the snap closure for Velcro...easier to get to..... Would definitely recommend as gift or in general. Caution with teens..they ARE NOT A TOY and should be treated with the same respect you do you carry weapon! TY, Knife Depot for a great product!
Good knives but I put 4 stars because it's uselessly sharp and the handle have cutting corner. I had to polish them. You can also wrap them with tape.
Those are real throwing knife because they aren't sharp. They are strong and fun to throw. They also stick well.
I'm new to throwing knives so I can't give an expert review, but I know knives and these seem to be good quality and the more I throw them the better I'm getting at making them stick in the target so they seem good.
I bought them for a friend and never tried them myself.
Bought these great throwing knives a few months ago. But didn't have the space at the time to practice. But now I set up a wooden board with cork board outside and started practicing a few days ago and absolutely love the knives. Great quality and quite sharp even after throwing them several times.
