    Years ago, I saw a set off throwing knives up on eBay that were made by Steyr-Mannlicher.
    I haven't been able to find any information since, so I was wondering if anyone came across any in their lifetime, or knew where I could find a set.
    Thanks.

    I don't know about the Steyr-Mannlicher's, bet they'd be costly. I have personal expedience with the Colt throwing knives and they are a great value and have awesome balance. The only issue I had was the rubber handles. In practicing, if you toss a knife onto a knife you just stuck, you are slicing and trashing the rubberized handle as the new knife comes slicing in. You can avoid it by a large or multiple targets, but it's nice to have a small circle to aim for and toss three right in there fast, and of course, it's an issue.

    Good luck with your quest!

    The Austrians sold off a number of Glock knives recently, These make great budget throwing knives. The same can be said for AK bayonets.
    For throwing spades, I use issue russian ones or a Cold Steel copy.

    I bought four Glock M78´s directly from a dealer on eGun. paid about $8,00 apiece with postage and all. And these are just un-kaput-able..

    I haven't thrown a 78 yet, but unlike most "throwing knives" (CS and Hibben) the 78s are a spring steel and should take some abuse unlike the floaters.

    Can you PM me the dealer you went through to get that price? At that price it makes them a fun thrower.The edges are going to be taken to a grinder anyhow.

    Bob Patrick of Crescent Knife Works is somewhat local for us in the PacNW, located just up in Surrey, BC if you're looking for some serious throwing knives.
