This is me throwing what i use most of the time: awls with a round point.
They are cheap, perfectly balanced and also rather safe; you can't cut yourself with them while throwing.
I have found these the best way to learn how to throw and i still use them now and then.
The red one is an older version that has been used for more than 15 years, it's a little crooked now so it's not that accurate anymore.
The 2 newer black ones are from a German brand called WIHA and are much higher quality with the steel running completely through the handle.
