    Hello all, I have been throwing knives for many years and have been through dozens of cold steel knives, several professional spring steel knives and more than I dare to count cheaper ones. I am looking for a really good quality set, preferably spring steel...mainly because knives I have owned in the past that were made out of spring seemed to last a lot longer. Any advice will be much appreciated, thank you in advance!

    Just to add, looking for 12 inches or longer in length.

    What he said. I've had a set of pro throwers and a Bowieaxe that I bought off Mr McEvoy in the mid 1980's and they're excellent.

    Wouldn't throwing heavy knives will ruin the target and accuracy for throwing normal knives? Just saying.

    Check out my site www.bullseyeblades.ca

    Everything I make is made to meet IKTHOF regulations, and typically a 13"-14" blade is what the high level competitors are using. I use mill saw blades (8670) and its incredibly tough stuff.

    Meh. If you intend on throwing any knife, you need to practice with that knife. Heavier and longer knives are better throwers. Especially for repeatability.

    With a few exceptions for really over built knives that have super warranties (like Busse) I dont tend to throw non throwers. (Again, a few exceptions).

    I have an 18 inch bayonet that I've thrown for decades , that I've not managed to break, but most non throwers will break realatively quickly against wood throwing targets (smaller, lighter knives... daggers, etc, etc)
