Rules to play Knife Throwing
Rules to play Knife Throwing
1. Choose your knife
There are three different kinds of knives that are good for throwing blade heavy, handle heavy, and balanced knives. Balanced knives are generally best for beginners as they make switching to other models easier.
Keep in mind that you want the weight to be thrown first. If you are throwing a blade heavy knife, you will want your blade to be thrown first. Hold the knife by the handle to throw it. And vice versa if youre throwing a handle heavy knife, you will throw it by the blade.
2. Grip the knife with your dominant hand
Though knife throwers often develop their own gripping styles with time and experience, there are three conventional gripping methods that beginners usually choose from depending on their knife style and or personal preferences. Note that a firm but delicate hold is necessary for all gripping styles; too much grip will hamper your release, whereas too little might cause the knife to fly out of your hand prematurely, potentially hurting someone.
Hammer Grip Grip the handle of the knife as you would the handle of a hammer; place the handle across your open palm near your knuckles, wrap your four fingers underneath and around the handle, and place your thumb over the top. This grip is especially useful if youre learning to throw a double edged blade.
3. Pinch Grip for a Single Edged Blade
Hold your palm out in front of you and move your thumb to create a crease between the fleshy pad of your thumb and the rest of your palm. With the handle pointing away from you, place the blunt edge of the knife blade into this crease so that the tip lines up with the bottom of your thumb crease. Place your thumb along one side of the blade and all your fingers except the pinky along the other side, thereby pinching the blade without pressing against the point or the sharpened edge.
4. Pinch Grip for a Double Edged Blade
With the handle pointing away from you, grasp the tip of the knife so that the tip of your thumb is one side of the blade and the tips of all your fingers except the pinky are on the other side, thereby pinching it without pressing against the point or either sharpened edge. Note that hold will not allow for a powerful throw; if you are just learning to use a double edged knife, you may have better luck with the hammer grip.
5. Angle the knife
How you do this will change how rapidly the knife flips through the air, which must be adjusted depending on the distance between you and your target. Note that these distances are somewhat subjective a knife held by its handle will need to turn over at least once in the air to land point first, whereas a knife held by its point will need to turn over at least one and a half times. Therefore, adjust the angle of your hold depending on how your knife performs for you with your chosen grip and distance.
