Throwing spikes??!! I'm gonna have to look into those! We've been having a lot of fun throwing hatchets and the Spyderthrowers lately.

Added to my post above:
Julia, actually there is a part two vid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDgjDdS6OTA) which shows pretty well how to "no spin" a spike right in the first minutes.
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Enjoying no spin knife throwing so much at the moment, that I got myself throwing spikes for indoors... ;)... Manix does not get thrown, but is in my pocket.

Throwing spikes??!! I'm gonna have to look into those! We've been having a lot of fun throwing hatchets and the Spyderthrowers lately.

Definitely get some! They are fun for shorter distances and actually pretty cheap too (don´t know the choices in the US, but I purchased these ones https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07FBGRVKB?tag ... th=1&psc=1)

Though as far as I can recall you and your husband do full spin throwing, right?
I prefer "no" spin anyway (actually more "quarter spin", but the point is, that the point (pun intended ;) ) is always facing forward, so the knife does not rotate) - and I think perhaps the spikes are perhaps generally better suited for that technique

I did not find much in how to throw spikes no spin, but this video shows it pretty well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-9cKkb5PTQ&t=31s
Starting at 0:30 already the lady throws some spikes, and you can see that they don´t actually fully rotate, but just fly in an arch, tip always facing forward.
At about 2:45 she tries a longer distance: Again, no full rotation.

Another good thing with spikes: They are really easy to take with you and bring anywhere, for spontanous throwing (not only indoors)

EDIT: Just saw: At about 4:00 in the vid the differences between no spin and rotational throwing gets explained
Thanks, W! Yeah, we've been doing full spin throwing, but I'm open to other techniques.

I feel like nobody really likes this knife anymore, I still find it unique and fun to fiddle around with. Button lock is something fun and different!

Some R&R after work :cool: the jade G10 is really cool. I thought the blade steel would be the defining factor of this version, but the scales are a big plus :D

Thanks, W! Yeah, we've been doing full spin throwing, but I'm open to other techniques.

Perhaps just get a set of three spikes and try... they really cost almost nothing and are probably actually the best (safest) entry for kids who want to get into throwing [Edit: YOUR kids of course, not you... :p Don´t know how old your boys are (perhaps already old enough for real knives) and if they like throwing anyway)

And learning the "no" spin technique is fun! First a bit of a challenge, but then it opens a "new world of throwing", especially with knives. You can just go for a run and hike and throw on every tree stump or dead tree you come across, without having to know the exact distance to it, and no matter if you´re five, ten, twenty, more... feet away (I think the current record in no spin throwing a knife is around 15 meters = around 50 feet).

I love this knife and I bought all the variants so far but I have to agree with you... it is quite overlooked.

I get it, the cutout for the button lock is definitely irritating when it becomes a snag point (experienced that a couple times already today) But besides that, it's a pretty good design. Multiple ways to comfortably grip the handle, nice wharnie shape, slices great. I also love how slim in the pocket it is.

Today was a Yojumbo, pushed the amalgan out of my pockets for now. We'll see how long it will last.

I definitely still love mine, especially with the beautiful wood scales on it. I've been distracted by other shiny things lately, but the Smock is still a favorite.

I actually prefer the handle and clip of the first iteration of it (the Salt) to the newer one (Salt 2).
