It can be a wonderful hobby, pastime, or even a profession, and the fundamentals are easy to learn. Anyone who can throw a stick, stone, or baseball can also learn how to throw a knife with skill and accuracy. All you need is a good knife-designed for the purpose, whether made to throw by the handle or blade, a target, and a small portion of the back yard for the throwing range. Few sports can provide so much recreation at so little cost. Knife throwing is a sport in which individual skills can be developed to a very high degree.

Great Book

The best knife and tomahawk throwing book ever written by a fine gentleman Harry McEvoy Knifemaker Extrodinair who passed in 1993.I'm proud to have had him for a friend and owner of a couple of his knives..ROTTI699


Great book, lots of fun! I always wanted to take up knife throwing as a hobby to relieve a bit of my work tension. I've learned more from this book than I ever thought I would & never even knew about knife throwing. I can't wait to get myself a nice set of actual throwing knives & put my skills to the test! This is the best knife throwing instructional book out there! GET IT!

Easy to read and it works!

I read the first few short chapters, went outside and started throwing knives! It was that easy! If you can read, and can throw a baseball then you can utilize this book.

Good for basics

Schools you on the ins and outs when you're starting out. Great kids and beginners book.


Mr. McEvoy teaches traditional knife throwing in this book as well as outlines tomahawk throwing. If you wish a more in-depth look at tomahawk throwing, I suggest you read Mr. McEvoy's other book on the subject. The author describes in detail the traditional technique as well as ways to figure out the distance at which you can throw the knife and "stick" it. He also has tales of past professionals in the sport and their own particular styles of throwing. He also talks of using throwing knives as huntsmens' tools and building a suitable outdoor target. He also shows you how to select (a) suitable knives (knife). If you wish to get the fundamentals of knife throwing down, this is the book for you.
