Pitchy, that throwing knife looks just like one I bought at rendezvous a long time ago. A good ol' boy from Missouri was making them from sawmill blades with oak handles. It makes a mighty satisfying "thunk" when it sticks!

When I was buckskinnin' I made several throwing knives, and 2 or 3 tomahawks.  For the knives I have used torsion plates from old classic VW bugs, but the best ones were from chainsaw bars*, with leather scales.  (*free from chainsaw repair shops.)

The "hawks" were garage sale hatchets shape-shifted with an angle grinder. New handles were made straight from hammer & axe handles.

The length of both hawk & knife should be the same, and the length measured from elbow to knuckles of a closed fist. That came to 16 inches for me. That way they make close to identical "turns", on the way to the target.  After a lot of practice you can stick at most ranges, by altering the speed and follow-thru of the throw.  I practiced a lot (Thereby being accused of taking an unfair advantage!) and could stick about 50% of throws up to 10 paces (3 full turns) and the "thunk" was very satisfying.  The best hawk & knife man I knew had been a Logging skills competitor who could stick a double-bitted axe at 25 yards;- for money! A good score on the knife and hawk trail in our local competitions could usually lead to a top combined score for the overall prize.

Here's a picture of a couple of mine.  They were made from chain saw bars, just like Sir Charles'.  They are 'weighty' and virtually indestructable, and at just short of 16" length, make one full revolution (held by the handle) in about 4 paces.  Each additional revolution adds about 3 1/2 paces to the distance.  It takes a good arm to stick consistantly at three turns distance.

Thanks guys, I`ve been away for a while so didn`t see your replies.
I got into building steam engines and other stuff and haven`t been shooting much or making knives.
Those are nice knives, I never heard of using chainsaw bars before I`ll have to give it a try.  Cool
