Aerial JACK HAMMERS!
So these things OVERALL are FANTASTIC! They hit like AERIAL JACK HAMMERS! It's so awesome and really easy to start going 3 for 3 in about an hour or less of throwing for beginners. I love em! Only down sides if I had to pick would be the sheath OSA little on the garbage side, kind of a pain trying to get them back in there after Ur all done for the day... Secondly and a little more seriously, with the weight of them the tips started bending on me after about 2 hours of throwing. Granted this was from a few misses but there's nothing that hard for them to hit. Just felt they would be a bit more resilient. BUUUUT! I tapped it back straight with a hammer no problem. Not sure if it caused the tips to weaken yet or not, only done it once and from what I can see they're holding up pretty good still. Also, the finish is NICE! But forget about that now! 1 or 2 throws in it'll be damaged beyond repair.. But it's a throwing knife, get over it! Lol I like that actually cuz it shows the tip wearing away (the finish) about a good 1/2 inch to 3/4 of an inch in consistently! Even with the lightest throws... I LOVE EM... PROBABLY gonna buy more so I don't have to keep walking a patch in my grass after every 3 throws! Lol GREAT KNIVES

Hit like a sledge hammer
Never mind that ad photo showing how those three knives are sticking into the wood. Those knives were not thrown, someone stabbed them into the wood instead. The knives are actually much heavier than they look which is a good thing. Due to the heavy weight, they don't float around and hit like a sledge hammer. The knife's point profile is thinner than his Dad's Gen II knife. It digs half inch to 3/4 inch into my cross-cut 4X4 wood target with a no spin throw at 10-12 feet. The penetration is the same as the Mini Bo-Kri doing a full spin handle hold. Finally, I tried the Fedin throw and the triangular shaped handle end gave my fingers more purchase prior to release. I had thought that the handle looked odd but it actually works.

I LOVE them!
As a beginner, I can't really tell about the no spin technique. I don't master it yet. But spin throwing them, I just find them great. 3m, 5m and 7m they just behave the way you expect good throwers to and it only took me a couple of attempts at each distance to sink them into the target. Be careful though when blade throwing them. They are not the sharpest blades ever but they do cut flesh and fingers if you don't pay enough attention. The blade itself is designed to deeply penetrate the target. And it really does! (I even accidentally stuck one into a brick wall, hardly blunting the tip). Their weight is good for me as I am not what you could call a hunter. I only throw at home made targets and really enjoy high weight throwers with which I am more accurate. But they are heavy to carry in a bag or, I imagine, on the field. And I can't imagine carrying more than 6. I got two sets at once (without consulting with Wolfman :)) to get a faster muscle memory (throwing series of 6 instead of 3) and they definitely ARE worth the price. I do recommend these to any thrower, beginner or pro alike and will eventually get another set or two at some stage because, and I do agree with Wolfman on this point, when you get such valuable knives, you have to get more to pass them on. And yes, the sheath is ok for storage, but not really handy or durable to be carrying the knives at your belt everywhere.
