I spent several hours online to find the right set of knives and found these knives perfect for my daughter. The knives are great for beginners and have not chipped or lost there shape. I highly recommend these knives. We use a hard foam for practice which is perfect right out of the box. The knives have since been sharpened to be used on harder surfaces.

It didn't take long before I was throwing these knives from a distance of twenty feet with no knife throwing experience. However on the fourth day I realized that two of the knives have already chipped. I was throwing these knives on wooden stumps which allowed my knives to stick well but they still chipped. They still work fine and still not bad for the money.

Just got my knives today, and I am very pleased. The sheath especially is much different than I pictured it, and I love it. The knives themselves are very good quality. The blade is not sharp, but can be easily ground out. The shoulder strap is a little confusing and the elastic strap that is part of it is also slightly coming apart at the seam, but that can be very easily re-sewn. Overall, this is an amazing purchase.

This product rocks! I got the knives delivered about 2 hours ago. It showed up 2 days early! I went outside and threw them a bit and the tips still aren't dull. I just started throwing knives and these are great for beginners.

By Adam B. from Michigan

These knives rock! Solid stainless steel design is really meant for a beating. After throwing these for about a month, I'm surprised that it only takes a little cleaning for them to shine like new again! The harness is pretty neat, though I found the knives slipped out a bit too easy for my tastes (watch your toes!). All in all, an excellent set of knives and HIGHLY recommended for anybody looking for a good set of throwing knives to learn the sport with!

By Pat M. from Syracuse, NY

These are nice knives! They come with a pretty cool sheath. They are well weighted and very consistent once you get used to them. These knives are well made for 20 bucks but I wouldn't pay much more than that for them.

By Ray K. from Locust Valley, NY

I ordered this knife set for my brother who is a beginner to knife throwing. They are nicely balanced, durable, and very easy to throw. My brother was able to stick all three after only a couple of throws. I used them once and liked them so much I plan to by a set for myself.

This is a great set of knives! I really like the shoulder rig also. It places the knives right where you need them & it is not made of lightweight nylon.

By James B. from Los Angeles, CA

The items, 7.25" Lightning Bolt throwing Knife Set, is an awesome product. We are enjoying them and they have great balance for throwing. It did take us a couple of tries to get the shoulder harness down.

These are excellent knives. It has a good weight and feel to them, and are just fun to throw. Also a great deal for the price. Didn't care too much for the case, but it looks cool if you can find out how to use it.

By Justin S. from Los Angeles, CA
September 6, 2007

This product is awesome! The knives are holding up extremely well. I have been throwing non stop with friends and the knives have been through a lot of beginner torture. All they show for it is a few dings from hitting cement. They have not bent or gotten dull yet! This was a very good buy!

By John T. from Louisiana

These knives are very strong. My brother accidentally through one of them at a rock and they didn't even break!

These knives are so cute, balanced, and a nice weight! Also the shoulder thingy is so nice because I had a hard time finding the right combination to put them on my shoulder. I bought 2 sets and they are perfect for the price. Peace... :)

Excellent balance in these knives. The sheath is also great for a shoulder holster or on the belt. These are by far the best set of throwing knives that I have had yet.

June 16, 2014

The set purchased was my first. They work great for throwing and are balanced great. The sheath don't hold to good on all three knives upside down,there's always one falling out. Three of four isn't bad

By Josh B. from Nashville, TN
April 28, 2014

I am a beginner learning to throw knives and these are perfect for me! They throw straight and are balanced really well. The reason I did not give this product 5 starts is because the tip bends after around 5,000 throws. But by that time I was ready to get more competitive knives.

By Gary F. from St. Louis, MO

By A M. from Kansas City, MO
December 31, 2012

First time thrower able to get consistency within a couple of hours so they seem well balanced and easy to learn. Can throw from handle or tip nice for beginner. Great package with the included holster that has lots of adjustments to fit all. Middle slot on holster doesn't hold the knife as well as the outside slots. Would definitely buy again.

By Homer S. from Utah

By John C. from Dallas NC
September 11, 2012

While the knives are excellent, the holster does not hold them securely. The strapping could be a little better designed also.

By Roger D. from Sherwood Park, AB
July 23, 2012

I was very satisfied with them. They are durable, light and well balanced. When holding them it feels like they have to be thrown and nothing else.

By Seph D. from Canada
May 6, 2012

Very good knifes that will even go through some strong metal (learned from experience) and perfect weight and size for a 10-any age old. it would get 5/5 but shoulder harness is sort of crappy. but if you dont care about that then this is perfect!

By Ron H. from Eastern NC

By Kevin S. from Warren,OH
August 28, 2009

This is a good price and nice knives! The holster is rather cheap and hard to figure out how it is put together. No directions for the holster. The knives on the other hand stick great. The shipping was fast.

By Dee C. from Thunder Bay, Canada
May 29, 2009

These are great knives and they are very well balanced! A little hard to sharpen but the metal is strong and has very strong tips. I got a great deal on them!

The lightening bolt triple set is the number 1 top quality throwing knives with great balance! The only cons: it is not very sharp....

The knives were what I expected. It's taking a while to learn how to throw, but I'm getting better.

By Jim H. from Sterling, IL

The knives appeared to be of high quality and well manufactured. I bought them as a gift for a friend so I only looked at them briefly. I was disappointed in the length of the knives. I will only buy knives in the future when I know the length.

By Zachary K. from Cincinnati, OH
February 9, 2009

I was very pleased with the overall quality and sharpness of the blades, durability of the sheath, and ease of taking the sheath on and off. The only problem I had with this purchase was taking the blades out of the sheath. One blade falls out when just turned upside down and another hardly comes out at all. The last one is perfect though. If you get a good sheath, this is a perfect 5 star buy for any knife thrower.

By Alan M. from Geneseo, NY
November 17, 2008

I love the knives! My only issues is that the holster did not come with any directions on how to size it, and the diagram was somewhat vague. This is a great product otherwise!

These are great little knives, well balanced and pretty rugged. They are exactly what I thought they would be!

I bought these knives a couple of weeks ago and at first sight they looked awesome! I almost didn't want to use them because they looked so nice. The first time I used them It was a bit awkward because I was expecting them to be a bit longer and heavier. After I got used to them they were good. The tip seems to be a bit fragile, I've already broken two out of three, when you try and get the tip again(with a soft grinder) It just unbalances the whole thing and they are just shanks after that. Overall, good knives.

The knives are excellent and they work good. They lack sharpness. I had a hard time figuring out how to put on the shoulder harness, but over all it is a good product!

I love the knives, but it did not come with instructions for the shoulder harness. This one has me confused. It's completely adjustable but I can't seem to figure it out.

By Andrei P. from Chishinau ,moldova
October 29, 2007

First impression was good :well balanced , nice design and (not the best but) pretty good quality materials. the harness doesn't stay as good as it should but still seems to be handy. Perfect weight and balance for a novice to start practicing , that is why i still consider this purchase a worthy one!!! After a couple of hours spent on throwing this knifes the blades don't look so nice and shiny but this isn't such a big deal, after all...- THESE ARE THROWING KNIFES !!! and they are supposed to look like this after you throw them :)

By Mark H. from New Hampshire
October 25, 2007

The knives are fine! A little on the light side for my taste, but they will stick fine with a good throw and a medium hard throw. So far, very durable.

By Brandon W. from Mosul, Iraq

The knives are great. The sheath is a good design but poorly made.

By Tom A. from Des Moines, IA
May 2, 2006

The Lightning Bolt Throwing Knife Set. The set is sturdy and I like the balance but I'm just getting back into this after a three decades absense. Last time I did this the blades were bigger and I've got to figure out why many of the products are far smaller than I remember. The plastic sheaf is well-designed and easy to carry, but the sheaf material is not very rugged and it arrived broken at one of the strap slots junctures. For the price this set is great and I'm having fun with it.

By Travis S. from Rochester, NY
March 8, 2006

Like every UC product I own the knives are very well made. Their throwers are all very well balanced. These knives are small but unlike many throwing knives of this size they have a bit of weight to them which makes them great throwers especially for 1/2 rotation throws and short range wrist snaps.

By J. R. from Dallas, TX
November 30, 2005

This is surprisingly good little set of throwers for the money. They balance well and are fun to fool around with. The sheath is the only disappointment. It comes with everything necessary to change where you wear it, I prefer the thigh, but you'll end up doing some modificatons to it on your own to make it hold the knives properly.

By Randy S. from Bakersfield, CA
November 3, 2005

It's a nice little throwing set for the money. I use it on my hiking trips as a way to pass the time around the camp fire. The knives have a good weight to them and the harness gives you a good way to sort them.

By Pfymnet N. from Boston, MA
October 8, 2005

The Shoulder holster is a bit clumsy and it was shipped to be hung upside down. The knives wouldn't stay in the holster that way and would fall out nearly taking out a toe. The knives themselves were great. This is my first set but they were balanced good and worked great.

By Leslie K. from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
February 1, 2013

Did not like the harness - thought that it was more flexible and made from leather or similar material, knives seemed to not be balanced - too heavy towards the handle but, you get what you pay for Otherwise a nice set

By Steve C. from Millville, NJ
November 13, 2009

The knives are perfect for my competitive knife throwing and my issue is not with the knives. The shoulder harness, however, is not functional. Once again, the knives are perfect and I am very pleased with the product.

It is not as easy to balance as some knives.

By Jenn G. from Fulton, NY
February 2, 2008

I have no idea what my man thinks of the knives! I was excited to get them but has nothing to throw them at..ummm..yeah you should do yourselves a favor and your customers and have had some board to use with them advertised in same area while ordering from your website..if he knew if he liked them he just may order some more people!

By Jonathan L. from San Diego, CA

The knives are pretty good. The sheath/harness aren't very good. The knives fall out of it too easily.

The knives are great, but the case sucks.

By Paul L. from Irving, TX
April 12, 2006

The knives are nice and semi-sharp at the points, but the plastic sheath leaves a lot to be desired. I would recommend a better sheath with comparable knives if available.

By Gary K. from San Diego, CA
October 27, 2005

Knives were ok, not very sharp, balanced well. The harness stinks, just get the blades seperate and use your own sheaths, the company was fine all delivery and orders were a breeze. I would use this site again and will in the future.

By Colten B. from Oak Harber, WA
December 12, 2005

These knives are of poor quality especially the sholder harness. The sholder harness does not even hold the knives in securly.
