    Throwing knives

    Can anyone with some experience recommend a set of throwing knives? I don't want something that will cost a fortune but I don't want junk either. I've been looking at a set of Boker throwing knives but I have no experience with Boker and don't know if there a quality throwing knife. So what do you guys think what would be a good brand/set of throwers?

    Adkjoe,
    I have purchased several different knives from knifekits.com, both folders and fixed blade. I have to say that the quality has far exceeded the price in every one of my experiences. I haven't purchased any of their throwers but would venture to say that same would be true of them.
    Here are a few links

    It's been a long time since I was into throwing knives but I would start out with a fairly inexpensive set of at least three or more. I always liked them to about 7 or 8 inches in total length.
    Starting with a set that isn't the "best or more expensive" is a good idea since until you gain a fair deal of proficiency there will be a lot of wear and tear on the knives from poor throws.

    I preferred knives that had double sided blades and were completely symmetrical from one end to the other. I liked the symetrical knives because I felt I could get a more uniform grip and feel (very impotant) no matter how the knife was oriented when I grabbed it. I always felt a little off when using a bowie style (non-symetrical) knife as the grip just seemed different and did effect my throw.

    This looks like a decent set and once you improve your skills there are other more expensive knives that are about the same length and weight.:

    Have fun and enjoy your new hobby.

    Bosco,
    That's the same set as my first link at a much better price! I'm going to have to check that BUDK site out a bit more!

    I hope you don't plan on using them for any utility or SD purposes. That only works in the movies, kiddo.

    Boker makes a good product. I scored a deal on some of their throwers last year and gave them away as Christmas gifts, as well as keeping a couple for me.

    Cold Steel makes an interesting line of throwers too. Give their Special Projects a look.
