The custom knife above was used on SpikeTV’s Deadliest Warrior Season One Episode One.
You never know. Way back in 2008, I made a couple of knives for a guy. In 2009 he was featured in the Deadliest Warrior premiere episode as one of the Apache Indians. The knives can be seen in the throwing demonstration. What you didn’t see was the handle of one of the knives exploding on impact. Since I wasn’t asked to make a “throwing knife”, the handle didn’t survive the demonstration. I repaired the knife free of charge of course, due to the free exposure that resulted.
I would say that the moral of that story would be that if you want a “throwing knife” make sure and tell the custom knife maker that you intend on throwing the knife. And that goes for any specific purpose. That’s what handmade knives are all about. They can be made for all sorts of purposes.
