Does anyone else have one of these?

I picked one up several years ago and it's just a blast to throw. It's much easier than throwing a knife and it absolutely devastates whatever it hits. I've split 3 inch thick blocks of wood in half with this thing from 20ft away by throwing it.

It's heavy, made of steel, and has two sharp points on either end making it a good puncturing/bludgeoning tool too but it really shines when it is thrown.

I really like it and am considering buying a 2nd one as after several years of throwing this one, it's well worn with use.

Anyone else have one?

cool video on one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCIHrmdOb1w

I think I picked mine up for $25 on Amazon, but like I said that was several years ago.

Cold Steel says you can use it as a hunting tool for small game and varmints but it doesn't seem that practical. I've never done it though. It is the most fun I've ever had throwing anything.

No, I haven't used one before. But after looking at it, I think that I may just have to get one.

Interesting combination of medieval mettallurgy and pre-iron age tactics. Throwing sticks were used as small game killers by aboriginals here. Not entirely practical no, which is why they never figured much as hunting/ancient army choices. For all that weight you get a spear or a quiver of arrows. Still wouldn't want to get hit by one though.

I can't remember how long I've had mine. Fun as can be to play with weapons. But once you throw it, you have to go get it.

It will easily break cinder blocks, bricks, concrete, and still be in one piece. To the unsuspecting opponent it would be devastatingly bad.

Midway has them on sale now for $19, plus free shipping on orders over $25. Might pick up 2 more come next paycheck when I do my ammo order.

When I was a kid I got very good tossing a Brit #4 rifle spike bayonet.
It's all about judging the distance and a consistent spin.
