I wrapped the handle with duct tape and put put some more just under the cross bar. That way while throwing the handle is protected and the cross bar is stabilized when throws hit wrong. Spin or no-spin. Once you get consistent you can take the tape off. With this in mind this is an excellent throwing knife!
It's a BEAST, very rugged and durable, look foreword to purchasing additional knives for my Brothers
I have two of these. They look pretty good. I did get them from Atlanta cutlery. For the price they are pretty good. I had to put on a sharp edge. After that they hit well. and stick tight to the target.
very good looking knife but the handle and hand gaurd basically get in my way so i stripped it down and wrapped it with paracord. it would be nice if this website sold just the blade with out the wood handle and hand gaurd
I got this Bowie to practice my straight throwing technique. It is a great throwing knife except the cross bar detached from the handle when it hit the target funny. I may just cut it off like someone else suggested. The scabbard is on the cheaper side, but for the price it is great! I am definitely going to buy this knife again once I get better at throwing.

This is the best bowie knife on the knife market. Anyone who feels the weight of this knife in their hand would realize what I am saying. Other knife companies sell a knife like this under the name of "The Classic Bowie". It is not sold as a throwing knife by any other company. The factory edge on this knife does need sharpening.
