-- A throwing knife is a knife used for throwing. It is different than normal knives for it does not have a blade. Usually, throwing knives only have a sharp point. Most are made of a single piece of metal that has been cut. Most do not have a handle and are around 6 to 12 inches in length.
Throwing knives are a popular sport in many areas. There is even knife throwing leagues. You can not only throw knives but tomahawks, axes and darts.
The best throwing knife for a begginer is usually a heavier, longer throwing knife Konstantine says. He stats in http://bestmachete.net/
knives/ that "Longer knives spin slower, so beginners can have more time to work on their techniques. Shorter knives spin fast and it is harder to get it to stick into the wood. The rule of thumb is that the knife should weigh 1.5 oz for every inch in length."
One thing beginners often do wrong says Konstantine in his new blog post is that they buy a cheaper, novelty knife. One of the issues with this is that it is not made of quality steel. The cheaper steel breaks easier and does not last as long.
Konstantine La is from Boulder, CO and an advid knife enthusiast. He enjoys knife throwing, sharpening, and bushcraft. He is often found on survivalist forums, gun forums, and knife forums. You can read more of his writing at bestmachete.net.
