I’ve started a new hobby: knife throwing. Yes, you read that correctly. There are TONS of videos available on Youtube, but my favorites are on Xolette’s YouTube channel.
Kiddo and I are newbies, so we’re only throwing unsharpened butter knives.
I have to tell you, knife throwing is SOOO much fun!!! Obviously, you need to be careful. Wear eye protection. Educate yourself. Be safe.
You don’t need to be athletic or good at sports. You do get a light workout. But mostly, it’s just super-satisfying! This is something I’ve wanted to try for a long time. It’s something my teen and I can do together. I suppose it could serve a purpose if we’re ever attacked by zombies in a restaurant??? We are using UNSHARPENED butter knives, after all…
We probably spent a good hour knife throwing earlier today and the time flew by!
If you’ve ever been curious and wanted to try knife throwing, I highly recommend starting with a set of heavy butter knives that you don’t care about, and go from there. You don’t need to use sharp knives. In fact, Xollette has videos that demonstrate how to dull throwing knives for safer handling.
