    Throwing knives... not an area that i have worked in before. Has anyone played with them before?
    What weight should one be trying to achieve?
    Where should the balance point be?
    How hard to make them?

    If anyone knows of some resource or reading material looking at them from a maker stand point please share.

    there is plenty of templates that I found on google. I found that the idea length is 18 inches long, if your looking for distance.
    I have made a few from old saw blades, 01 tool steel 1/8 , a old file and spring steel close to 1/4inch thick. it really depends on your preference and what feel comfortable to you. If your planning to participate in coemptions your knives must be blunt ( so you don't cut your hand while speed throwing ) , so a nice pointy tip is always good.
    Here is my post of some I have made for the hell of it.
