Looking for some great throwing knives? Check out our Smith and Wesson set of 3 throwing knives. They measure 10″ each and are built from 2Cr13 stainless steel. Comes in a nylon sheath with a belt or strap loop for carry.
What makes these knives so great? There are basically three different styles of throwing knives; blade heavy throwers, handle heavy throwers, and balanced throwers. Whichever end is the heaviest on a throwing knife is the end thrown first. So a blade heavy throwing knife is held by the handle and thrown blade first. Opposite for a handle heavy. Balanced throwers can be thrown either end first and they typically have a faster rate of rotation–which makes it easier to adjust your turn rate when you throw them. These Smith and Wesson throwing knives are weighted just about in the center with a very slight bias to the handle. This makes them great for nearly all styles of throwers.
These throwers have a slot in both the handle and the blade that makes the weighting just right. They also have a hole just behind the center of gravity. The blade is not sharp along the edges and narrow to a wide dagger point. The point isn’t sharp enough to actually cut paper but is plenty sharp from the point to about an inch down the blade on both sides to stick into whatever target you throw the knife at.
2Cr13 stainless steel is comparable to 420 stainless steel. It is highly stain and corrosion resistant which makes it perfect for a knife that is going to be used outside frequently. As with any throwing knife, your knives are sometimes going to miss and hit the dirt, grass, or whatever else is around. This means that depending on where you are, they are going to be exposed to some moisture. So 2Cr13 stainless steel is perfect for these knives. They are also extremely thick. At 5/16″ thick, these knives have some serious heft, which I like. It makes for a substantial throw. As opposed to some really small throwers which sometimes feel too light, these knives weigh in at 4.8 ounces each.
I love my Smith and Wesson throwing knives. If you want a set of solid throwers that are perfect for heavy outdoor use, get yourself a set and let me know what you think.
