ha! i was laughing when i saw the change in the title of the thread before i even SAW your post. thanks, man!
So, do you guys mostly collect/have knives for survival type purposes (useful purposes) or do any of you collect knives that are really pretty much
not intended to be used, but rather kind of novelty-ish... you know... just for looks?
I have some really cool throwing knives... and not the cheap flea market/convenience store ones either... but i have NO idea how to throw knives. i
would love to learn how.... provided i don't take out the cat, dog, my car tires, etc. in the process.
being a woman the thing that concerns me
about knives, even though i own several and have a "thing" for them and i ALWAYS carry one, i know that in order for me to use one to protect myself,
my perpetrator would have to be pretty darn close to me - and there's no guarantee i couldn't be overpowered and have my own blade taken from and used
against me. i like to think i'm a pretty touch chick, and for the most part I am... but... i also know full well that i am no match for a man in a
hand to hand situation. however.... if i could throw with some sort of accuaracy - i would be awesome!
