The Torpedo and RPG are a lot of fun for target throwing because they are easy to throw from almost any distance. These tools slide effortlessly from the hand for a perfect release and offer twice the sticking potential of a conventional throwing knife. What’s more, they allow you stand way back from the target (20 yards or more) and really throw them with tremendous force. They are also great Multi-Taskers. Read more

Knife Throwing: No Spin / Flip Technique (With Video)

No Spin /Flip knife throwing is an alternative throwing style. The principal difference between this style and standard knife throwing is that  the knives are thrown so that they fly straight into the target with no rotation, or flipping.  The knife fly’s straight like an arrow.  This is accomplished by a throw that resembles a shot put  accompanied by a slight downward flick of the wrist as the knife is released, in order to cancel out momentum accumulated in accelerating the knife. This style is considered more difficult than standard knife throwing, but I completely disagree, It has a huge advantage you do not need to gauge the distance to the target. In my opinion it is more useful for defense and hunting .  I have tried this style with a pocket knife to a machete and it works fine with them all. I would only throw my field knife in the gravest extreme. But I am addicted to this new sport. Read more

Honey is one of the best foods on the planet because of its nutritional value, and it antibiotic qualities.  Make sure that your target is actually a honeybee hive. Not everything that buzzes leads to honey. Wasps and yellow jackets make nests, but they do not produce any honey, you can eat their larvae but that is another article. Also, there are solitary species of bees which don’t make honey.  The best way to find a wild hive is to follow bees you see gathering pollen to their home. Read more
