Knife Throwing

So I picked up competitive knife throwing for a few years. I originally saw Joe Darrah compete at the Atlanta Blade Show in June 2004 and wanted to try it out. Joe gave me a handmade Mountain man Knife and some great pointers and I practiced in my back yard for a month. Thanks to Joe Darrah, Mike Bainton and Scott Gracia for all the tips the day before my first tournament.
