I am giving these things four stars simply because for the cost (which is not all that much), you pretty well get what you pay for. I have two sets of these knives and the serve my purposes well.

I have been "into" throwing knives since I was a small lad and since I still have a lot of kid in me, I still enjoy the hobby. I have a large, rather soft post in my backyard near the barn that I practice with.

These knives are small. They are also black. This creates problems. Unless you are working in a completely bare area it is quite easy to loose the things. I took care of that with a can of bright yellow spray paint on the handles.

These little knives are absolutely ideal for the beginner as they ARE NOT SHARP when you receive them. Folks to start with razor sharp knives end up with nasty little cuts no matter how they hold the knife or what technique they try to use at first. Better to be safe while learning before you graduated to the "real thing." The points of these knives do tend to break with hurled into a harder surface so I would suggest you use them on something relatively soft.

Due to the lack of sharpness and the low cost of these knives, they are ideal for teaching the grandsons and granddaughters this art. It is a wonderful tool for teaching eye/hand coordination and so much for fun and healthy then having them set in front of a computer game. The primary objective of teaching the beginner is technique and accuracy. These fit that objective perfectly.

All in all for the price, these a pretty nifty little knives...as long as you don't expect too much.

Knives are well balanced and easy to throw. The paint tends to chip away easily and the nylon grips on the handles are coming unraveled (though I have beaten them to death as is), but for the price you can't really beat this set of throwing knives! Also, the case is pretty heavy duty and any belt can be eaily threaded through it's belt loop.

They got here in good time and they look great. The string keeps unraveling and I can't throw 'em worth a darn, but they're my first experience at throwing knives, so we'll see.
They hold up pretty well for bouncing off the wall multiple times. I could've done without the "stealth" part when I'm trying to find them in the grass, but I was looking for the cheapest thing out there...

I've been throwing knives for a while, and thought these were interesting enough to give them a try. When I was handed the box by UPS I knew something was wrong. It weighed 1/3 of what it should. Sure enough, these are simply thin strips of metal with a point. And *short* thin strips of metal that weigh nothing. I threw them for the heck of it and could not apply any control on the spin, angle, nor the wind variable which unfortunately affects these little darts. Please, PLEASE save your money and buy a knife that you can throw!

Its my fault for being too cheap so I got ripped off by the seller Rodgers Goods. Right after I opened the box, I can tell that the knives were fake. They looked nothing like the ones on the photos. It didnt even look like it was metal at first sight. And im sure it wasnt stainless steel either. The whetstone seal isnt there so yeah, its not the one being advertised on amazon. So future buyers, beware. sometimes it hurts more when you pay a lot less.

This set of "throwing knives" are the worst i have ever used. The paint chips, its not stainless steel, more of a carbon alloy, it chips easily, is too light, bends too easily, and a little hilt heavy. the only weight to the knife is the string. Overall one of the worst throwing knives on the market. The reviews lie. Don't buy it.

I was trying to decide on a rating for these. They are much, much lighter than I would've liked for throwing, but with a little time on a grinding stone you can put enough of an edge on the entire blade that it basically makes up for it.

One of the nicest aspects of these knives is that although they technically have an edge, it really hasn't seen a sharpening stone at all, which lets you decide where you want the sharpened area to be - point, single edge or double edge.

Another nice perk is that although the picture above shows a black cord grip, mine actually came with red, making the knives easier to find. After about 20 minutes throwing I decided to strip apart some yarn and tie a "feather streamer" through the loop of each knife to further facilitate finding them, but the red wrapping was bright enough for the task.

Finally, the sheath is that cheap-ish nylon material that's so common for knives these days, but there's a polyester interior that keeps the blades from catching. Not a great product, but again - does its job right out of the box. Great gift for a teenager since the blades are dull enough to prevent most accidental cuts, and too small to really be used for anything but throwing.

If you're looking for a blade that can actually be held as a blade, check out Expendables movie throwing Kunai, as they are a full foot long with a handle that can be comfortably gripped.

Straight to the point: For under ten bucks, you'll find no better set. They aren't perfect, but really, for that price are you expecting hand forged eastern master craftsmanship? in detail, one of the blades on my particular set is just slightly unsymmetrical, but you wouldn't notice at a first glance. The centers of the knives showed a slight distortion, but nothing that effects their performance, just a slight ascetic flaw that I may be a bit more frustrated with at a higher price. In terms of sharpness, the blades were on the dull side, but one can usually expect that from factory made blades. Nothing a quick sharpen didn't fix. That's another good thing, these knives sharpen VERY easily with a regular hand sharpener. (At least with the kind I used, which is nothing special.)

As for size, the entire size of one knife is just about 6.5" with the blade being about 4". Like it's been said, don't expect some massive fantasy kunai, your hand will NOT be filled by the hilt unless you have infant sized hands. In all honesty, the knives were actually BIGGER than I had been expecting, not that I'm complaining.

As it's been said, you'll probably want to put SOMETHING on the "ring" to help you find it after you whip it. I'm either planing on sticking some orange tape around the bottom of the ring OR I might just wrap it around the hilt. If you do that though, don't put any thing to thick or heavy on it or the shift in weight just might make it harder to throw straight.

The carrier is pretty nice too, better quality than I expected for sure.

Anyway, for the price alone, this set is worth it, very sturdy and pretty nifty too. Makes for a nice, inexpensive gift or door prize as well. (Well, I can't really see giving away throwing knives as a door prize, could be some legal issues there depending on the event... yeah anyway)

Overall, 5 stars for a product that's very satisfying for both me and my wallet.

I was amazed at how fast I got these knives! They were delivered in less than a week. They were a little smaller than I had expected, but they were definitely great quality for the price I paid. They're pretty much indestructible no matter how many times you throw 'em up against a tree, if only I could get them to actually stick into what I'm throwing them at. >_> But all together, I was completely satisfied with these knives and would recommend them to anyone interested in throwing. ^_^

I initially purchased two sets for myself, and was the rage of all my family and friends for a while!! These are a great set of knives, and I've even purchased additional sets for my children! Truth be told, they need a lot more practice and need to do it outdoors, but boy were they upset when I tried to ground them from using them. They had torn holes in the walls of their bedroom, and even now I hear them using them near me in the computer room. Just a word of precaution, when given to small children, make sure there is always adult supervvisdkfldf;sdjk;lflsmc,. ds.,msfdnjk;ljfsedvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
