Pros: Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Blade Material
Fun thrower but weak tip
THE PROS:I got the knife from my brother as a gift several years ago. I loved the weight, balance, and the size above anything else about the knife. It was fairly easy to establish a solid consistent throwing rhythm with it and when it stuck, it stuck.THE CON:After having the knife for about 6 months and only having thrown it for about half an hour a week (on average), a day came when I hit my target (a soft, slightly decomposing stump of pine wood) and the tip actually broke.And it wasn't a matter of the blade flexing to the side or anything, it stuck into the target and as I pulled it out, the tip simply separated from the blade!I've always loved Cold Steel, and I've had overall great experiences with their throwing knives, but this one was a bit more of a disappointment.But a simple few passes on the grind wheel and I had a new, more 'stout' tip to the blade that hasn't flexed or broken yet, so the knife is definitely still good for throwing.But for 20+ bucks, I don't think you should even have to worry about minor fixes or mods on a throwing knife from such a well-reputed company.Overall, an OKAY throwing knife.
