Definition of a Throwing Knife

A throwing knife is a unique, and specially-designed knife crafted for a specific purpose. A key component in its design is weight. One that is too light will wobble in-flight, thus affecting accuracy. One that is too heavy will be equally hard to control because it will inhibit a smooth throwing action.

A good throwing knife design incorporates a smooth handle that affords a good grip without any risk of the handle getting stuck on release. Blades generally have sharp points for penetration but dull blades for safety. The knives also tend to have an ergonomic design to improve flight accuracy.

Note that these knives are not toys. Even though blade edges are dulled for safety, a person could still be seriously injured or killed by misusing a throwing knife. These knives should be treated with the same amount of respect and care given to any other knife.

Throwing Knives Throughout History

The exact origins of the throwing knife are not clear. However, history does show the use of wooden throwing sticks in Egypt in the first century BC. Whether or not the sticks were primary weapons is not known. It is believed that throwing sticks were converted to metal knives at whatever point armies began using metals to fashion more deadly weapons.

Historians believe that throwing knives common to Asian cultures were birthed from Japanese shurikens (throwing stars). There is evidence that Japanese samurai used both throwing stars and knives together. However, neither one was designed to be a primary weapon. Throwing knives and stars were intended to be distractions that would induce fear in combatants, allowing the Japanese soldier to gain close quarters more quickly.

In central Africa, there are records of throwing knives as early as 1,000 BC. Records dating from the first century A.D. indicate that some African tribes used throwing knives as their primary weapons. Europeans visiting Central Africa began collecting the knives and bringing them back to Europe. Thus, the African throwing knife made it to the West.

Today, throwing knives are rarely used as weapons. They are primarily for knife-throwing competitions, hunting, and entertainment here in the US. The diminished use of throwing knives as weapons is directly related to the tremendous amount of skill necessary to do it effectively. In an age of modern weaponry, it is just not worth it to learn how to use a throwing knife for military purposes.
