Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered these because the tip of my old throwing knife (Muela) snapped off. I use the quarter spin or no-spin technique, which, favored the Muela because it was 11 inches long or so and had a heavy blade.
These knives are around 8 inches and are shaped like a propeller. The handle is about the length of my forefinger - so I had some difficulty in using the no-spin method. I still use no-spin with these knives but I have trouble in longer distances.
If you're using the spin technique, you would be right at home with these knives. They seem to be designed for that purpose. Durability-wise, these seem solid enough. I have a wooden target and sometimes I get a bad hit where the knife bounces off and lands on concrete tip-first and they're still ok.
However, one of the knives was about .5-1 cm shorter than the other two. Not really a big deal, but that means their quality control may not be 100% spot on, so, just keep your eyes open for other defects.
My first impression of this knife set was that of a typical man...awesome, cool, and badass. I couldn't wait to throw them. I should of waited because now they are scratched, dented, and bent. They are sturdy though; I'm just an idiot. They are not sharp out of the box, so they are good for perfecting your throw. The sheath is strong, but plastic and looks something similar to the holster that comes with the old western toy gear and cap guns. The weight makes these great for penetrating boards and walls, as well as boxes, dart boards, and plastic bottles.
This Gil Hibben "Small Competition Triple Thrower Set" is a very good, high quality starter set for those wanting to learn or practice knife throwing. We bought these to augment the 3 Pieces Black Spider Throwing Knife Set 6" Overall Length set we already have, but these are much higher quality. We also have several other Hibben throwers and I have posted comparison a picture in the "Customer Images" section. Throwing has made a surprisingly enjoyable addition to our workouts and my son and I are actually getting fairly accurate. Here are my observations:
+ Well Balanced; easy to find the balance point, very near the midpoint + Good Heavy Weight; heavy enough to stick in a pine board when thrown from 10' - 12' + Quality Metal; tips have held up well, despite having hit the floor more than a few times + Leather Belt Sheath; good quality and has snap to hold blades in place
These are specialty knives that are customized for throwing, and work well...
