Published on 16 feb. 2016

The Gyro Knife also known as The Gyro Dart, is a product out of Spain by a company called flyingknife.com. Don't confuse this novelty product from the custom knife makers at flyingsteel.com. We took a few hours out of our day to try and see if this product could hold up to the hype. Surprisingly, we had a blast and couldn't put the Gyro Dart down the whole day. We even considered putting flood lights out when it got dark! Results were impressive! The Gyro Dart maintained a blade forward flight from start to finish. The technique takes a little getting used to but once you understand it, it's smooth sailing from then on! Basic principle is to place your finger in a hole just behind the blade in the handle. Maintain a very loose wrist and throw it similar to a football or sidearm it like skipping a rock over water. Within 10 minutes, we had success so we turned on the camera and shot a few quick throws. .We easily hit 50'+ throws, only limited by the size of our backyard. Our next test will be in an open field and hopefully film 100'+ throws! Worthy of a fun afternoon of throwing. PLEASE NOTE: This novelty knife is NOT accepted in any sanctioned IKTHOF NO-SPIN EVENT.

Note of Gyro Throwing Knives

The no-spin throw, with a normal throwing knife, is considered as the most difficult way to throw a knife, and special skills are necessary to be able to.

The Gyro Dart Knife  is not  accepted because you don´t need any special skill to throw it with no spin; everybody can do it.

Dr. Christian Thiel, Chaiman of the Managing Committee of the European Throwing Club Flying Blades (Eurothrowers ) says about the Gyro Dart Knife: “ to throw knives no –spin,  you usually have to train for months, not so with the “cheater” knife the Gyro Dart, its tip will always face the target in flight, and it´s  extremely fun to throw.”

Instructions

This knife flies with its tip always facing the target, due to the gyroscopic effect of its spin around its longitudinal axis (as a rifle bullet does)

HOW TO HOLD IT: as you see at the attached video.

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 dart 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 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.

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 dart 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 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.

If the knife is released with the right hand, the blade’ sharp edge must face to the right If released with the left hand the sharp edge must face to the left

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 DART KNIFE
