The Gear List: Our favorite throwing knives are now more than $30 off on Amazon

You might be able to get by without a set of throwing knives, but it seems really risky.

Don’t let your martial arts and marksmanship instructors fool you; throwing knives and axes are totally viable weapons on the modern battlefield. Our research suggests that America’s enemies spend almost no time preparing to counter, say, a barrage of hatchets slung at them by pissed-off grunts on a Rip-It bender. I guess “great power competition” was just the U.S. military’s favorite euphemism for doing things the same way as always with no creativity whatsoever.

But even if the Pentagon isn’t ready to acknowledge the strategic capabilities and overall rad-ness of throwing knives and axes, you can still have a killer time (metaphorically speaking, of course) with your friends by partaking in the art of airborne blades. Right now, some of the best throwing knives on the market — and throwing axes, too! — are on sale at big discounts on Amazon. Get in on the action now and you can have them in time for this weekend’s (safe and responsible) debauchery.

Let’s go ahead and get that safety brief updated now, shall we?

These prices were valid at press time, but prices can change and deals do expire.
