    So I bought the book in an attempt to recapture those boring summer afternoons. I also got a set of throwing knives, 8 inch long, here on amazon. I admit that this book isn't going to throw the knives for you. I had some time where no knives would stick. I continued to read the first 3 chapters over and over again and it seemed as though I had a better chance hitting the lotto than finally sticking the knife.

    Dang good read. I like the fact that this book actually goes in depth about the history of knife throwing and especially with a guy who KNOWS what he's talking about. Knife throwers have their own special ways of learning how to throw and hack at a stump or other target. I love Mr. McEvoy's points in this little book. He gives simple direction with pictures and instructions on how to throw a different array of knives and hatchets/Axes. I suggest both new and seasoned knife throwers to pick this book up. It's influential, inspiring and eye opening to the world of throwers. Worth every penny. Thanks a ton!

    bought for my teenager. He read the book, thought it was good. Went in the backyard and threw knives. Within a few minutes he stuck them, unfortunately I bought cheap knives and they were quickly ruined.

    This is a pretty old book...however, the techniques are still valid. There is a lot of information on the history of knife throwing and how you can make a living doing it. I won't quit my day job.
