"From knives and knife throwing techniques to competition and advice, as well as profiles of pioneers and legends in the field, this book covers it all."-Bobby Branton, President of American Knife Thrower's Alliance (AKTA) Not only is knife throwing fun, it is also a great sport, entertainment, recreation and exercise. It can be a wonderful pastime, or even a profession, and the fundamentals are easy to learn. Anyone who can throw a 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. Knife throwing, like proficiency in any sport, is developed by natural aptitude and instinct combined with that one magic ingredient: practice! Knife Throwing by AKTA founder, Harry McEvoy, demonstrates how to throw a knife successfully in chapters such as: -How to Throw a Knife -How to Develop "Pin-Point" Accuracy -How to Select a Throwing Knife -Tomahawks and Bowies
