Knife Thrower Meetings and Competitions

event dates    reports    Big European Throwers Meeting   Rules

There are many meetings and contests where one can meet fellow knife- and axe-throwers. (external link / new window)Throwzini has an overview of the meetings in the United States, while (external link / new window)Axtwerfen.de and us cover Europe primary. (If you know of any meeting, please send us an email.)
The largest event in Europe has so far always been the Big Throwers Meeting / European Championship.

For many competitions, the (external link / new window)standard European Knife and Axe Throwing Rules are used.

Do have a look at the pictures in our reports on past meetings.

If you are interested in "throwing" a meeting in your country, or are just curious, join the (external link / new window)Eurothrowers mailinglist.

The (external link / new window)European Throwing Club "Flying Blades" (Eurothrowers) is of course another very important source. Among other things, they published a (external link / new window)best-practice handbook on how to organise throwing competitions.

Big Throwers Meeting / European Championship

promoted by Knifethrowing.info and (external link / new window)Axtwerfen.de and (external link / new window)Eurothrowers.org

To promote the exchange between axe- and knife throwers in Europe, in 2001 the European Throwing Club Flying Blades ((external link / new window)Eurothrowers) started the "Big Throwers Meeting / European Championship". This event has since been established as the both the central annual competition and relaxed and friendly meetup for throwers from all over Europe, and is assigned to a different country each year.

If you are interested in organising the event in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us.



Standard competition rules

In September 2008, representatives from 4 European countries negotiated a common set of competition rules. After a revision in 2010, those are used in most international European competitions:
