Kershaw Ion Throwing Knives Make For A Fun Time

I thought that when I bought the Ion Throwing Knife Set made by Kershaw that I would be wasting money on a cheap set of throwing knives. When I actually had the knives in hand I was pleasantly surprised with how well balanced they were. I was also surprised with the quality of the stonewash finish in the knives. The blades feel really nice in hand, the only thing that annoys me is the metal “O” at the end of the handle. I get that Kershaw made it for balance, but it is difficult to grab adequately while throwing. I wish that they would have just made the end of the handle a more solid piece that was flared, but overall, the knife throws well.

 

Test Throws From 15 Feet Into Wood

I threw this set of knives at exactly 15 feet away from a wooden board target 50 different times. I managed to make the knives stick in the wood 28 times out of the 50 throws. Now, I am not a professional knife thrower, just a knife collector. I have to say that I was impressed with myself to be throwing successfully at over a 50 percent success rate.

Are These Throwing Knives By Kershaw Worth The Money?

Everyone is different, but for me it was definitely worth the money. These knives may get tucked away in the closet some day, but when I first received them, I definitely got my money’s worth of use from them. I banged the knives up so badly that you can barely tell they were originally stonewashed. I also had some fun throwing them into a piece of sheet-metal that I nailed to a piece of plywood. The tips came extremely sharp straight out of the box, however, the edges were pretty dull and I had to sharpen them up a bit with a strop. All in all, if you are looking for a decent pair of knives to throw, then you can’t go wrong with these Kershaw throwing knives.

The Absolute Best Affordable Pocket Knife

Now, before you get your panties in a bunch. Yes, I get that there will be a ton of knife nuts that come here while playing with their $1000 S30V Custom Auto Folding Knife and say, That isnt even close to the best knife ever made! Calm down, read the title again, and then continue. The knife below is what I believe to be the absolute best affordable pocket knife that you can have for under $15. No, it doesnt have a super steel. No, it isnt made in the United States. Yes, it does look like a blatant rip-off of a Chris Reeves Sebenza. All of that aside, this is hands-down, the best cheap pocket knife under $15. I present to you, the Sanrenmu 710.

This knife is wonderful for the money. As of today, June 4th 2016, this knife can be purchased on Amazon for $12.99. It is worth every single penny that I paid for it and I paid even more. For those who arent in the knife collecting community, Sanrenmu is a Chinese knife producer that has been around for a while now. I heard somewhere that they are actually the manufacturers of the Spyderco Tenacious, one of the best EDC (every day carry) knives out there, but that is just a rumor and I dont actually know if it is true or not. Either way, the quality to price ratio for this particular knife is outstanding. I actually own three (and bought 2 more that I have away as gifts), simply because they are such good knives for the money.

The knife weighs 3.1 oz and has a blade length of 2.8 inches, which is perfect for EDC. This knife has an 8Cr13Mov blade steel. It feels virtually weightless in your pocket. The tolerances are quite incredible for how inexpensive it is. The frame lock that this knife sports is quite hefty, despite the relatively light weight. I cant think of another blade that has all of these features at this price-point, and for that reason alone, I believe that it is the best affordable pocket knife on the market today.
