Let\u2019s pull away from chopping trees down or using hatchets for recreation and survival. What about throwing axes? Your average axe isn\u2019t built for that\u2014but the Smith and Wesson Throwing Axes are. Given that 3 come in a bundle and they\u2019re balanced for throwing, it can be the best axe for fun and games.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Smith and Wesson Throwing Axe\r\nThese small axes are curved, balanced, and come in a bundle of three for one simple purpose: to throw them at a tree or target. Ideal choice for practice.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nFor such small axes, the balance in the Smith and Wesson Throwing Axes is quite good. Three sharpened edges were added for level throwing and increased maximum surface area. And the axes themselves have a nice curve to them that allow for that rotational energy to keep going. Since these are Smith and Wesson, they\u2019re really sharp, too. With one good swing and accuracy, you can stick this into any nearby tree.\r\n\r\nWhat they won\u2019t do is provide survival features. You can\u2019t cut wood like a Fiskars Super Splitting Axe, nor provide versatility like the Husqvarna 26 Wooden Multi-purpose Axe. It doesn\u2019t even stack up against a Coleman Camp Axe. It\u2019s simply for throwing.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Smith Wesson HawkEye Throwing Axes are some of the lightest axes on our list\u2014even lighter than the venerable SOG Tomahawk Throwing Axe. Each of the three axes weighs 8 oz, with a combined weight of 2.4 lbs, and they all fit inside a durable nylon sheath. They\u2019re of a one piece design, but lack any grip. At the end of the axes, however, is a bottle opener. Quite frankly, it\u2019s useless. While it works just fine, not every tool under the sun needs a bottle opener at the end. Encouraging drinking and throwing knives or axes probably isn\u2019t the best idea.\r\nValue\r\nGiven the good performance of the Smith and Wesson Throwing Axes, with nice balance to compensate, we can certainly give it our seal of good value. This is especially true when realizing that you get three axes instead of one for less than $50. Of course, it should be noted that throwing these axes are all they\u2019re good for. You won\u2019t be chopping trees or using them as survival tools; it\u2019s strictly for the fun and admiration of the sport.\r\nSmith and Wesson Throwing Axe Wrap Up\r\nThe Smith and Wesson Throwing Axes are meant for one thing: entertainment. That\u2019s why they\u2019re balanced for throwing, have a one piece design, and come in bundles of 3. Even the bottle opener on the end\u2014useless as it is\u2014was meant for added fun. You aren\u2019t taking these on a camping trip or to cut trees. All you do is throw.
