    Knife Throwing

    So I got these corded Hibben throwers (the three set that comes with the nylon belt strap) and the accompanying Hibben throwing book. It shows how to throw from the handle and blade. Problem is the blade rotates and you can't throw from any distance because during rotation the knife may hit with the non bladed area and you mays as well have thrown a rock!

    Does anyone throw here? If so do you use the no spin or "slow spin" method?

    Supposedly the no spin is really hard but I've been doing it kinda easily.

    It's easier just to figure out your particular knife rotation distance and practice throwing from there. And really, throwing knives is just a distraction/harassment technique, not intended to stop/incapacitate, so throwing rocks can be just as, if not more, effective. Getting hit by a brick can, and has, killed.

    With the hand that will eventually find it's way to the face of your opponent.

    See, it works on so many levels.

    Can I point here that Ninjas used to stick their shuriken in dung. So when it cut your opponent the wound wound get infected and the people would later die?

    Yes, throwing other crap may be more more useful but throwing knives is a little more skill involved and has the added benefit of making me feel like a cool ninja guy. Actually I read somewhere shuriken were not always sharp so the effect was like throwing rocks.


    Most all knife throwing enthusiasts state that it is not best to throw in a fight (what if you miss?, your better off slashing and stabbing with it). It just might even take too much time to bring the knife to aim and throw it in an unexpected fight.

    But its still cool and could hurt or be fun. Just wondering if anyone else had tried the no spin/quarter spin technique.

    If you could get the no spin technique down wouldn't it be easier to use that instead? That way you don't need to know how far away the target is(actually since it really has a very slow spin supposedly it will rotate after 15 meters, but your accuracy would probably be poor at that distance anyway).

    Also, it would make it easier to throw things you are not familiar throwing because you don't have to guess how its weight will affect the spin(because there is none.)
