Instructions

HOW TO HOLD IT:

as you see at the video in the product page.

HOW IT WORKS:

once the knife is resting on the index finger tip, it slips up due to the centrifugal force; the friction between the fingertip and the resting surface generates the spin, this spin stabilizes the knife’s flight.

HOW TO THROW IT:

Ballistic throw: place yourself at 10 paces from the target, your right leg in front and, with a loose wrist, throw it as you would throw a ball, with a direct throw, of basketball (as per the video).

Direct throw: place your left leg in front and throw the dart knife as you do when throwing a rock with three fingers; kindly, you can practice by throwing few rocks and pay your attention to the release instant, which is the moment when you release your thumb and middle finger and the rock sticks onto your index finger tip.

Wrist movement must be from rear to forward; avoid wrist rotations.

THROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- FOR INTUITIVE PERSONS: the instructions are only two words. “LOOSE WRIST”

Place yourself from 10 paces to the target and throw the gyro pocket knife with a slightly upward path, keeping your wrist completely loose. Dart knife will fly with its tip facing the target and spinning clock wise (watch the two dragons )

-FOR NORMAL PEOPLE: instructions are only five words: RELEASE BEGINNING THE WRIST LASH

CLARIFICATIONS TO THE INSTRUCTIONS

LOOSE WRIST: relax your wrist as when you’re throwing a stone gently, reaching a ballistic path. Place the index finger tip a bit to the right of the resting surface. Start the movement with your hand above the level of your ear.

FIND THE RELEASE INSTANT: which is the same instant in which you BEGIN the wrist’s lash . Pay all your attention to it; if you release too early, the knife will face toward the right, if you do it to late the knife will face towards the left.

LET IT SLIP: The pocket knife must escape from the hand slipping onto the index finger tip, don’t hinder this action; the more the knife spins the more stable the flight. The index finger tip must be pushing till the knife leaves your finger, because the last push is what generates the spin.

THROWING CORRECTIONS: if just leaving your hand, the knife aims towards the right: move your fingertip to the right and/or retard the instant of release. If aims towards the left: move your finger tip to the left and /or advance the instant of release.

During this time period forget about aiming, first you must learn how to throw the gyro pocket knife. This is the reason for using a big enough target. You must pay all your attention to your hand, not to the target !

ADVICES

When throwing, don’t worry about keeping the tip of the pocket knife directed always to the target; when flying, the knife corrects itself providing that it is spinning like a bullet.

Use a big enough target; dashboard plywood 1,2 x 2,4 m and 16 mm in thickness works really well. Pine planks too. Stand about 10 paces from the target; it’s a good distance for learning.

Feel the knife’s weight, get used to the sensation of its weight

Start throwing upwards (as a ballistic throw) and gradually throw straight to the target.

In both cases, right or left handed, the blade’sharp edge must face the floor.

WARNING

Make sure nobody is standing in front of you, as they could be injured. The thrower is the only and exclusive responsible for any arm inflicted to persons, animals or goods. Keep this knife away from children and adolescents.

HAVE FUN THROWING THE GYRO POCKET KNIFE !
