Terry, thanks for being so willing to answer questions and post replies to everyone's comments. That's very gracious. OK, are you accomplished at knife throwing (Is there an appropriate term for that?) or does a stunt person throw those for you..........like the one you so accurately placed in a precarious position near Boone recently. The look on his face was priceless! ROFL

I'm pretty good at it, harmoni, but I wouldn't attempt the trick with Boone. I have plenty of time when I'm on the set and can usually spend an hour or so at work practicing. Knife throwing is the only term I know. The knives I use are pretty heavy and have a certain rotation so that they can only be relied upon to arrive with the business end forward if I am the proper distance from the target, about 10, 20, or 30 feet. ( that's the farthest I've thrown) but I would never take any chances with another person. They have a tendency to srping back at you if they strike a certain way and I have made won hospital visit (5 stitches). No biggie but I gained respect. When they hit near a person, effects will handle that with a wire or something, I'd never willingly let anyone throw a knife anywhere near me.
Thanks for the question, Terry
