If you’re into throwing knives, you’ve likely heard of Jack Dagger. Widely-recognized as one of the best knife throwers in the world, Dagger (real name Todd Abrams) has been making a living hurling knives for the last ten years.
He worked as the “stunt hands” for Adam Sandler in the movie “Don’t Mess with Zohan” and also had a role in the T.V. show “Monk.” However, his main gig is performing; he’s had to close 1,000 shows since he moved to Los Angeles in 2003.
The highlights of these blade-throwing frenzies are Dagger slinging knives within inches of his assistant. He’s also become famous for his “cucumber slice,” in which he slices a cucumber off the arm of his assistant by flinging a knife at her from around 20 feet away.
Enough explanation, check out this video of Dagger on the Japanese T.V. show “Dream Vision.” His assistant is about as cool as you could be while having deadly blades thrown at you, but the audience members seem on the verge of breaking down in hysteria.
