- Knife and Tomahawk Throwing McEvoy, Harry K.$5.00
The twin sports of knife and tomahawk throwing have expanded so rapidly in recent years that keen competition has developed in many parts of the country.The techniques are similar but are, by no means, exactly the same. The thrower does not need to throw the weapon hard, but simply get it properly in motion so that it will make one smooth, even spin to embed itself into the target. Tomahawk throwing is a fascinating sport. It is easy to learn and even a minimum of practice will soon result in amazing proficiency. Knife throwing is not that simple. Knife and Tomahawk Throwing by Harry K. McEvoy will help you to get started and to improve you skills.

During the period between 1450-1650, gunpowder weapons and new military technologies gradually extinguished the need for knights in shining armor on the battlefield. In this period, unsurpassed production of elaborate, richly decorated, and superbly crafted suits of armor became a symbol of status and was worn increasingly for ceremonial purposes and adopted into everyday life and dress.

This book tells about knife making and the forging of knives. The author had as a goal to record and illustrate the essentials of other edge tools. He hopes in this way to be able to contribute to the preservation of this part of his cultural heritage and that as many people as possible share in the creative joy of making a knife.
