Big Throwers Meeting / World Championship and European Championship in Knife Throwing and Axe Throwing

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, already in 2001 the European Throwing Club Flying Blades ((external link / new window)EuroThrowers) has started the "Big Throwers Meeting / European Championship". This event has since been established as the both the central annual competition and relaxed and friendly meet up for throwers from all over the world, and is assigned to a different country each year.

Every couple of years, the event is designated as World Championship, and organised on a very big scale. For example in the World Championship in Callac, France, 2014, there were throwers from 12 nations competing, with teams from countries as diverse as Italy, Russia, Switzerland or the Czech Republic.

To understand why the Big Throwers Meeting / World and European Championship is really the most important event for knife throwers and axe throwers each year, just read the reports about the last years' events.

In 2016, the World Championship was held in Maniago, Italy, and we met in Alsómocsolád, Hungary for the 2017 European Championship.

Have a look at our calendar of important knife thrower meetings worldwide.

Rules

We will employ the (external link / new window)European Knife and Axe Throwing Rules (version 2010, (external link / new window)available in 7 languages).

For each event, the thrower has to show up with three throwing tools (knives/axes). Exceptions only for throwing tools damaged during the meeting.

If ties need to be resolved, the following additional ranking factor will be used: The number of times a participant scored a 5-point stick (further using 4-3-2 sticks if necessary).

We will have the following standard events:
  • Knife 3m, 5m, 7m
  • Axe 4m, 7m
  • Knife and Axe: Long distance
  • Experimental: Axe 5m "Handle Up" (Only for this single-distance event, it is mandated that the axe must be sticking with its handle pointing upward.)
