This week we’re doing something a little different with the Badass Knife of the Week. Instead of one knife, we’re featuring a knife set: the Gil Hibben 12-inch 3-piece Throwing Knife Set.
There are hundreds of reasons why these are among the most badass throwing knives out there, but let’s get down to the most important thing. The knives feel amazing in your hand right before you send them hurtling toward the bullseye across your yard with a reliable precision.
The three knives, each a solid piece of 420 stainless steel, have an outstanding balance and weight that’ll give you accurate throwing every single time. Also, the ergonomic design allows for variations in your technique.
These knives are great for beginners, but even professional throwers swoon over this set. An inscription on the 6.5-inch double-edged blade marks the approval of the International Knife Throwers Hall of Fame, so it’s no joke.
In case you’re not familiar with Gil Hibben, the custom knifemaker carries a long history of respected designs and a strong reputation as someone with an eye for both functionality and flair. Bear in mind, this is the same guy who made his first Bowie knife at 15 out of some scrap metal and designed knives for a few of the Rambo movies.
Along with the 12-inch knives, the throwing set comes with a nice leather sheath in case you want to carry it to a friend’s house or competition.
Just one of these throwing knives could be worthy of a Badass Knife of the Week title, but the fact that the set features three just seals the deal.
