Most of us have seen a throwing knife - essentially a weighted blade with a tang that doubles as a handle - one long metal piece. I do not have the skill, or see much use in getting the skill to use a throwing knife, BUT I have thought of getting a few and using them as pre-made blades to attach to other things. Whenever anyone gets lost in the woods, it seems like they always make a spear by sharpening a stick, and I am wondering if anyone thinks it possible to attach the throwing knife to the end of a stick to serve that same purpose. I havn't tried it, but has anyone tried using thesse blades for anyhting other than throwing? What other reasons do people carry throwing knives?
