Review update
Please read previous product review as it is still accurate, this more of a follow-up review. I have purchased a number of common sharpening systems trying to put a true slicing/cutting edge on this spike with no luck as the angle of the edge and thickness of the spine doesn't lend itself to the process. For those who want to make this spike more like a knife I would recommend the work sharp system, or a belt grinder/sander. The rubberized portion of the spike eventually came off. I've considered gluing it back on & even replacing it with other materials, however it remains just as functional without the rubberized portion. The tip and edges of the spike have taken plenty of abuse without reducing the overall effectiveness of the spike. In short this is a superior throwing spike that has lasted well over 500 throws into hard targets and just about as many misthrows resulting in hard contact with stone without causing failure to the spike. I will be buying more just as soon as my budget permits me to.

Initial review
After some research I decided to purchase this knife. I recommend that if purchasing multiples, inspect every single one, as some may not be as symmetrical or esthetically pleasing. The edges are not dull but also not as sharp as one may expect from a knife, so don't expect to be able to cut or slash very well with this knife, the edge angle as well as the thickness does not make this knife easy to hand sharpen, I've tried with my Arkansas sharpening stone as well as with my "Block Sharpener", again the angle prevents one from being able to give this knife a serious edge; I will try a lansky and or a works sharp sharpening system later, and I will provide a follow-up review. All that said this knife has a point that won't quit; it makes for a good stabbing knife, and a superior throwing knife, as the tip is difficult to damage. After inspecting the knife I figured it was time to throw it. The point sticks nice and firmly into plywood targets without maximum throwing force, no B.S. on a bad throw I missed my target and the knife hit a rock leaving a noticeble indentation along with some minor chipping and fracturing damege to the rock, as for the knife tip there was only a very slight rolling that I could not see without trying and was honestly only noticeble when I rubbed my finger across the tip, this did not have any affect on the performance of the knife. I haven't bothered with the shoulder strap system the knife came with as that is not how I intend to secure the knife and sheath. The sheath does provide a secure method to safely store and carry the knife in any position and also provides a moderately quick way of deployment, with practice. The knife has a balance point at about 4in. (from the bottom to the tip). The knife overall is 8-8 1/4 inch, the rubberized portion of the knife handle is about 2.5 inches and along with the finger grooves feels comfortable to grip, as well as to manipulate. Over the years (like many of you) I've owned various types of sharp pointy objects which were supposed to be designed for throwing and out of all of them this is hands down the best throwing knife yet. It may take some time before a follow-up review as this item is more expensive than your average throwing knife, but there will be a follow-up review. Thank you for your consideration of my review.
