We love throwing knives, that’s for sure, which is why we jumped at the chance to sponsor the first Louisiana State Throwing Knives and Tomahawk Championship. The event, which was held on May 14 and 15 in Arcadia, LA, featured some of the finest knife and tomahawk throwers in the South.
Thirteen throwers entered the competition, with seven in the men’s professional division, one in the women’s professional division, two in the amateur men’s division, two in the amateur’s women’s division and one in the junior division.
