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 we cover Europe primarily. (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 photo impressions 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 association (external link / new window)European Throwing Club "Flying Blades" (Eurothrowers) is a central sports throwing source. Among other things, they published a (external link / new window)best-practice handbook on how to organise throwing competitions.

Meeting Calendar

This calendar is about knife throwing, and axe throwing - that is, tomahawks and other small axes. Should an event be about axes with two blades, this is marked by "double bit".


Please remember that before registering for an event, you need to check which hygienic rules or restrictions apply on site.
