I bought these. They are spectacular. The cool factor is over the top - BUT - I can knock the cool out pretty fast while I'm learning to throw theses bad boys.
My pristine "target" for a few obligatory try out throws.
Very solid hitters - heavy and well balanced but not your average throwing knives profile.

Today I got a bit more serious setting up a target area. Will need to gather up some log sections for more long term throwing.
In the meantime this area is rock free and there is room to stand back.
Trying to learn optimum grips for 3 meter and 4 meter distances. I don't think these will be able to be thrown NO SPIN. I would like to learn that I am wrong. Mostly concentrated on proper grip today.
Good for 3 meters is a baseball pitch style holding full up on the handle. Good for the 4 meter is best held from the blade and tossed straight on, as shown in the photo below. These are my first observations. Will certainly change as I get better with these and try to develop more technique. Couldn't do anything underhanded.

You can see that there was lots more target carnage - lots of kevlar handle imprints not so many knife sticks. 😝

Then I did the ultimate sacrilege. Very sorry
. The last thing I want to do is destroy these.
It was a true oh crap moment. 🤬
