Today, knife throwing is more of an art or a hobby for many who still hold the skill in high regard. Ask most skilled knife throwers and they will tell you choosing the right throwing knife can determine how good you are.
Factors to Consider when Buying Small Throwing Knives
For those who prefer small throwing knives, these are some of the factors you should consider when buying one:
1. Sharpness - Most small throwing knives come with sturdy tips and dull edges, and others come sharp and ready. You should remember that you are buying a throwing knife for piercing and sticking onto a target, not for cutting. A small throwing knife with good construction should have a super sharp point and a thick blade that helps the tip penetrate targets easily.
2. Length and Weight - You need to find the perfect balance between length and weight when buying small throwing knives. You can expect a small throwing knife to spin faster.
3. Material - The material used to make small throwing knives determines their strength, weight, how it looks, and its durability. Most knives are made of metals like stainless steel. Buy a knife made of a strong material that won't bend or break when you throw it. The material should also be rust resistant to enhance longevity.
4. Handle - Handles affect how comfortable it is to use the knife, how it looks, and most importantly for a knife thrower, the center of gravity of the knife. If you don't understand how the center of gravity works, the handle can really screw up your knife throwing technique. Some blades have handles while others do not. Some blades have the same material as the handles. The most common handle materials include:
5. Aerodynamics - The shape of the blade should not cause resistance to air when you throw the knife. A knife with poor aerodynamics has its weight unevenly distributed. It will certainly not fly well. A small throwing knife should have a slim design to boost its aerodynamic factor.
