The best thing about them is that they are really easy to learn with. First time throwing knives, had no problem making them stick 3 out of 3 times from the 20-25th attempt on. Kind of heavy, solid, with a thick blade (not handle though, see below) make a very satisfying thud on impact. Because of the weight, they do go in pretty deeply and require a bit more confidence in handling and throwing. The only problem I had with them is that one of the knives snapped at the location of the two holes when I threw it a little too hard (well, a good deal harder than usual, actually). Surprisingly enough (or may be not) just the blade by itself kept on sticking with almost the same success as the whole knife used to. Looking into getting another set.
