Yea I'm not too worried either. My guess is he'll be throwing them from the handle not realizing how you're really suppose to throw them

I've actually taken lessons from a friend and I know how to properly throw these knives. I'm to the point where I can get every one to stick in a good target, and my accuracy isn't bad either. I'm completely willing to demonstrate if anyone would like to volunteer? Any takers? Anyone?

Hey, at least they are all within the target!
(I had to re throw a couple that got knocked down when others hit, not quite as good as a Styrofoam target.)

After figuring out how these like to be thrown (from the middle of the knife, rather than from the tip), they stick fine at close range. Still not working very well at long range, but I've been practicing daily.

I'll show you how well I can stab knives into things..

I've worn through the middle of the target pretty well, peeled off about two layers of the cardboard.
