Hey guys, knives are sharp. [Aug. 31st, 2016|09:33 pm]
Laurion
So I went out in the backyard to practice some knife throwing tonight and thought I'd try putting a bit more spin on it so I could stand closer to ten feet. And for the first time had a knife come straight back at me. Did you know bleeding gets you seen faster at the ER? Fortunately it wasn't a bad place (left forearm outside near the elbow). So 18 stitches and a tetanus shot and I'm home before bed. Stitches come out in two weeks. I'll be out practicing again Saturday, although carefully. So, in all seriousness, please be careful out there people. Post stitches image below (below the cut if possible, har har), pre stitches photo available on request.

Ow! Glad to hear it didn't hit anything more vital.

Also, didn't you just get recognition for being good at that?

Geez, this has been a bad week for Thrown Weapons Champions. Sympathies, and glad it wasn't worse.

(The only bright side is that you now have a *fine* cautionary tale for teaching new folks...)
