The idea for starting this thread was so everyone could post photo's of their Throwing Knives as well, am I the only one with a collection? :confused:

I think throwing knives are great. Don't have any yet, though I used to throw knives when I was younger. Mostly I have traditional folding knives, which I can't throw. I may invest in some at some point because it sure is fun.

My sons been bugging me to pick up a set of throwing knives for a while now and I did use to be pretty good at it as a kid so maybe it's time that I do. Any personal suggestions on a decent starter set that is quality made but won't break the bank Matt The Rat?

Night Rider: look at the Cold Steel offerings for quality knives that won't break the bank.

Now, back to the original topic. First, if you have a collection, you might wonder how to store it and carry it around. For my little collection, this Duluth Trading tool roll works well.

Unrolled, it looks like this:

Taking them out, we have:

Top: Cold Steel Sure Balance
Right: Flying Steel Shur-Knife
Left: Flying Steel Arrow
Middle: Inexpensive "home-made" blade from ebay that I quite like.
One more view shows the relative sizes:

and, you can see how I ground off one of the tabs above the handle on the Sure Balance to make it better/easier for no-spin throwing. That said, I really feel that these Cold Steel blades are too big and tip-heavy for me, and I'm considering grinding them down to a Shur-Knife profile.

Here are some I just finished last night 4-19-2019.
Two of the three still look like them selves on the table. The other....
I'm still trying to figure out what I did wrong in my heating related processes.
I like your Tru-Bal Knives, looks like you've had them for a bit...

Certainly wouldn’t consider it a collection but here is what I got.
3 Cold Steel Tru Flight and s few throwers I made.

The Tru Flight came crazy sharp for throwing knives and even after dulling them a bit the wraps didn’t last long.

If you cover the cord wrapped handles with a layer of hockey/ sport tape they’ll last for a good long while, just add another layer when they inevitably get cut. The whole thing won’t unravel in one go though ;)

Sadly I lost all of these in a break in, but they were good solid throwers. The cold steel GI tanto is another good one, I've only seen one snap out of the 8 my buddy has owned.

Sorry to hear about your loss. There are some real scumbags out there, piles of :poop: :mad:. Looks like you put in some time to clean them up too!

This is the slowest sub-forum I'm aware of here, but I'm glad it's still here.

I'll take a pic or two later. I'm not sure what the state of my arsenal is. I think one good, plain, flat one (no handle covering), two alleged Chinese pattern alleged throwers (definitely made in China), and a couple of Pakistani Bowies that are big and cheap enough to not get broken and not be cared about if they did.
Those old Indo-Pakistani Jeep spring knives vary a lot.

If you're lucky, you have a local throwing buddy that will let you test throw them.

If that's not an option, you locate an online friend who has them and can give you a personal review and answer your questions.

The next step is to search utube and see if any one has posted a review.

The last step is to just buy them and check them out yourself. This is what I usually end up doing. It's also why I have as many user throwing knives as I do.

How are you checking to see how well they balance before you purchase?

I usually want to know where a knife balances, rather than how well it balances (since they all balance somewhere). Flying Steel posts balance points on their specs pages.

Lorian, who made those 3 that are stuck fairly close together that look about the same? I really like the looks of those.
