Knife throwing is an art, sport, combat skill, or variously an entertainment technique, involving an artist skilled in the art of throwing knives. Throwing knives tend to be sharpened on the handle as well as the blade, and exhibit fine balance when thrown. However, due to their small size, they have less range than thrown spears or hatchets.
