These functional and stylish Throwing Knives from SOG are balanced and properly proportioned for the sport and target practice, but if you're so inclined they are capable backup field knives as well. The handles come wrapped with black paracord or you may want to outfit them with a bright 550 Paracord color of your choice for those times your knife doesn't quite hit the mark, making it much easier to find. Includes nylon sheath that safely carries all three.
The first set of knives I purchased to try throwing were the Kershaw Ion Daggers. These SOG are a much better set. I would highly recommend them for beginner throwers. They seem more durable than the Kershaw knives, and they are easier to throw.
6 months of hard non-stop use. Own two sets, mine and my 12 year old son. I am a knife thrower (not professional) and I'm finally happy with a production knife. Very well balanced, good weight ratio for length. The length is perfect and is now allowed in most knife competitions. Shape and cut out is perfect for many different types of throws. Comes factory sharp. Had students for 9 weeks use these knives and had no issues. No issues with breakage at all, not even a tip. Paracord can easy be heated at the roll under part to keep from coming off. Did this to all knives and no issues. Rolled edge, yes but only when throwing and stacking the blades. However we use a 3 target system so this is a non-factor. FYI, have over 400 hours on one set of knives
These knives fly great, and take all the abuse of a beginner knife thrower. As the description says, they also make a fine back up camp knife.
I bought these to see if I could learn the art. They are durable and affordable. I have had my buddies comment on them as well that they look great.
The overall quality of the knives seem quite good. However because you typically grip throwing knives by the blade end when you throw them, the fact that these have an actual working edge make them not ideal for learning to throw that way as you have to be careful to not cut yourself while gripping the knives.
