    i've been trying to look up people doing no-spin knife throws on youtube for an hour. you seem to be the only person i've found who can actually do it. most other people are either cheating by standing 1 foot away from the target, or else they spend 15 minutes explaining HOW to do it, but they never actually demonstrate (ie: they're talking nonsense and they can't actually do it).
    so, in summary, you're the internet king of no-spin.

    Look, I have had various conversations and received complements and tips from Ralph Thorn himself. This was my first no-spin video and I give you a long list of my videos showing improvements. Check out my Combat Knife Throwing Montage and Maximizing Spear-Style Accuracy.

    @Fred8943 It's a Cold Steel Pro-balance and it is definetly my favorite knife for no-spin and probably rotational throwing for that matter as well. Thanks for commenting and please let me know if you have anymore questions

    @knifethrower72194 Sorry I didn't reply faster. I had the video of my practice practically ready but then I got told I'm not allowed to post it . I threw the knife like 15 times at the board at 6 feet and end up missing it about two. At 12 feet I'm not so lucky and only hit it 3 times out of 50 something. I think it's because I'm using a knife with one of those "bumps" in the middle that's right on the center of gravity; which stops my finger from sliding smoothly down the knife.

    @Mozartghost1791 Glad it worked. I'd appreciate it if you uploaded a video of your practice. You can even upload it as a response to this vid. That way I can give you some tips and suggestions. Don't worry about other people dissing your vid. I really enjoy rebuking haters. Thanks for the comment.

    @knifethrower72194 Thanks again. I moved my grip farther up the handle and put my index finger on the spine of the knife and BAM. Now my chances of hitting the board went from 1 in 10 to 5 in 10; and that's just on the first day.

    @Mozartghost1791 Yes, Sorry I don't have a tutorial on the style…yet. It is called shuriken-style. When I say shuriken I am not talking the throwing star rather a "bo-shuriken" or spike. The grip is similar to Thorn style except your fingers are gripped closer together and ussually at the center of balance point. The throw is a no-spin technique that requires a semi pushing motion. If you search Bo-shuriken or HouzanSuzuki you'll probably find something.

    @knifethrower72194 Oh, thanks. Hey, is there a straight throwing style that you would recommend for using with a 6 inch knife? I started trying it with the Thorn system, and it seemed to work better than my feeble attempts at the Fedin system, but then again, I may just need more practice.

    I'm very impressed– I'll definitely have to recommend your channel for the long distance no-spin tips. You make it look easy! In addition, I find it difficult to throw no spin with that bump in the middle of the knife. You handle it pretty well. If you're interested in no-spin knives, check out Flying Steel's site. I love their designs for no spin. Thanks for sharing!

    Pretty informative, nice vid. The thorn system is indeed pretty good. I agree that if someone is to learn this style of throwing they should check out both the book and the video. I think the combination of your skill at non-spin and your accuracy at spin throwing will do very well together.

    @freakman420 Here's the deal. I got really good at rotational throwing long before I started Thorn Style. Lately, I have been trying to get more consistent and accurate with my spear-throws. Anyhow I can't really pick one style over the other. However, I am leaning toward Thorn style. Once I master it, it will probably become my favorite. With that said I am still much more familiar with rotational throwing.

    Good instructional info on the mechanics of thorn style, Thanks for sharing. Keep up the good work. Oh and do you prefer the no spin or rotational throwing? I'm never going back to rotational after learning the no spin Thorn method.
