You hold your Throwing Knife between your teeth, keeping it handy while your hands are busy picking a noble’s unguarded luggage. Leaving anything valuable without a guard is like an invitation to steal it…at least that’s been your experience.
With a satisfying ‘click!’ the lock comes undone and you pry the chest open to reveal–oh, yes! That will do nicely. You pocket what looks to be a sizeable purse and a few interesting looking weapons, before carefully replacing the lock and sneaking out of the tent undetected.
Epic Armoury’s Throwing Knife Impaler is a spear-like throwing knife. This 24 cm knife has a 14 cm double-edged blade with a fuller. The 8 cm handle is hand painted and sculpted to look like wood, framed by a brass pommel and crossguard.
The Throwing Knife Impaler complements most of Epic Armoury’s high and low-fantasy products, while giving the costume a cruel addition. Made from coreless durable closed cell foam and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that this throwing knife will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
- Designed to resemble a “balanced knife,” which is preferred by most Western traditions
- Knife throwing was first used in martial arts and hunting before it became a sport
- Throwing a knife was always considered a risk in martial arts, because an unsuccessful attack would leave you without a weapon while arming your attacker
- A fuller, or the groove that runs the length of the blade, was added to weapons to lighten the blade while adding structural strength
