Is Tomahawk Throwing Safe?
So dear reader, “Have you thrown a tomahawk?" Cause here is what we can tell you: Tomahawks are great for anyone regardless of age (let’s be reasonable, I will not be giving my infant a tomahawk to throw…) height, and gender. I (the writer) am just over 5 feet tall and a somewhat out-of-shape female. However skeptical I was at the beginning of my tomahawk throwing, I enjoyed it from the moment it left my hand and went flying toward my target.
When most people think about throwing tomahawks, they usually focus on the possible dangers associated with such an activity. While we realize that we are playing with a sharp object, we use much care when throwing our hawks. Hawk throwing can be a lot of fun! While you may be skeptical of the fun and more afraid of the danger, judgment on such an activity cannot be placed until you let one sail for yourself.
Tomahawk Throwing Safety Tips
- Throwing tomahawks are not toys. They are made for recreation but they may cause harm if you are not careful around them. (See: How to throw a tomahawk article to learn!)
- Maintain a safe distance from where the target is located to make sure that stray tomahawks and debris from targets will not reach you.
- NEVER aim or throw your tomahawk at anything except for designated targets.
- Practice throwing your tomahawk in a space wide enough for you to be at 5 steps away from the target.
- Remember to keep the sheath of your tomahawk on when you are not using them.
Does Hawk Throwing Take Skill?
Short answer: No. Long answer: It took me a few times to really “stick-it” in my target. However, it was a blast each time it left my hand, regardless of the end result (hit or miss.) I was with a throwing tomahawk “pro” who taught me a few things, and even a few games to play. Now, he had a lot of skill. You know, throwing two at a time and sticking them, throwing them backwards and sticking them; you get it, he stuck them no matter what he did (hence the name “pro”.) However, throwing tomahawks have been used in boy scouts for years and are growing in popularity. Just teach the basics of safety and commit your new tomahawk throwers to follow the safety guidelines. Then observe the fun that can take place. I will mention that you will want to watch them and reinforce any of the safety guidelines so that all can benefit from a fun and safe activity.
