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 and they are just plain awesome knives. 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. They are almost as much bang for your buck as the best cheap folding knives that I reviewed a while back. 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.
