How to throw a knife: simple secrets that cause the blade to stab into the target
Throwing knife - a kind of knife, related to throwing weapons.
"Any knife, even a folding knife, is suitable for throwing. True, after a dozen shots, he will shake, and his flight will not be able to control, " - says Vladimir Sergeevich Kovrov, instructor in sports throwing knives club" Hard Hand ". If you ever get ready to seriously tackle throwing steel, look in the hunting shop one of the models of a throwing knife (for example, "Sturgeon-2"). In the meantime, for fun, you can use any handy item with a handle and a blade. The rules of throwing are equally applicable not only to special throwing knives, but also to ordinary table-top microchip instruments and even to long nails.
Uncomplicated and understandable rules, following which you will master the initial basics of throwing a knife in a few minutes and surprise everyone on a picnic.
After an unsuccessful throw, the knife bounces off the target at the same speed as it flies to it, but if you have time to bounce back - another question. So blunt the blade (strongly) and the tip itself (slightly). In a tree the knife will all the same vopetsja, and in you already hardly. Drive away from the target all spectators. When throwing, the penetrating power of the blade is twice as large as when striking. Especially in a person, you may not get, but by chance you can unexpectedly turn out.
Find the center of gravity of the knife, balancing it on the index finger. Well, if at first it will be a "balanced" knife - one whose center of gravity is exactly in the geometric center.
Take exactly for the point found with your forefinger and thumbs. With the tips of the others, press the blade to the palm of your hand, placing it on the line of life towards you. "Do not squeeze the knife with all your might. Keep it as if you are trying not to release a sparrow out of your hand, "Vladimir Kovrov refers to your imaginative thinking. The blade must pass freely between the fingers.
Do not get too handsome and spit in the palm of your hand. From the moisture, friction will increase, and the sliding of the knife will slow down. If you sweat your palm, just sprinkle it with talc or starch.
Rise from the target at a distance of not less than three and not more than four meters. The knife thrown from this point, making a half-turn, will necessarily fly up to the target with the point forward (thanks to the physics section "Dynamics of rotating bodies"). Experimenting further with the range of the throw, remember: if it is less than 3 m, keep the knife a little closer to the point, if more than 4 m - move the grip closer to the handle.
At a distance of more than 5 m knife throw, holding the handle. In this case, he manages to make one or one and a half turns in the air. However, you need to start training at a distance of approximately 3.5 m.
Leave your left foot forward, pull your right hand for a swing up and back, without bending your wrists. Turn the body to the left and the same movement that you throw a snowball, went the knife to the target. When the hand is fully straightened, the knife will fly out of your grip. "Do not unclench your fingers at all," Vladimir Sergeyevich points out. - Together with the palm they play the same role as the gun barrel channel. If you at the last moment instinctively reveal the grip, the knife will swirl in the air and change the trajectory. "
Pay attention to the picture below. In this way, and no other way, your wrist should be fixed in the moment the knife is released from the hand. You will certainly want to lower your brush down, since the mind will be sure that from this position the blade, which is almost perpendicular to the ground, will necessarily stub up somewhere. But do not believe your feelings. Your inner voice is again mistaken, as at the time when he advised putting all the money on the zero.
Well. Now you finally cease to act like a child, playing knives on the floor, and begin to throw an adult in the kitchen door, waiting for the kettle to boil.
