    I think one of these guys should make me some shivs like these:

    [​IMG]

    I used to teach art in a penitentiary years ago, and the inmates there could make some nice ones and I learned a few tricks, although I prefer not to dirty my hands unless I have to. [peep]

    They must be balanced for throwing. I like the ones pictured above. 550 cord hand grip on the hilt. Boo -YOW.

    Those look like pretty nice designs, can you give me the dimensions ? ... I'm waiting on some steel now but it looks like a fun one to build ... maybe with a black linen micarta grip ?
     
  16. Brokor

    It is an 8" overall knife, 1 5/8" at the widest section, and the blade takes up just over 4". The lanyard in the back you can see, and I have no clue what "linen micarta" is ;)
     
  17. Valkman

    Valkman Knifemaker Moderator Emeritus Founding Member

    Micarta would probably make it handle-heavy and useless for throwing - unless you made the blade heavier also.
     
  18. TLynn

    TLynn Monkey+++ Moderator Emeritus Founding Member

    No definitely no micarta...unless of course you drilled out the handle Valkman? That might lighten the knife enough to offset the lightness of the blade.

    I've got a couple of throwing knives but they're heavier and daggers - they've also got real wood for handles and are not made like that. Oh wait, one is...nevermind.

    Thin slab the grip and lengthen the blade a half inch and I bet the balance would be fine

    I wish it was that warm up here....I made that push dagger while it was only 10 degrees in my garage, but I'm used to cold weather. I was born in the U.P. [beer]
