    I have always wondered I have seen stainless steel chop sticks and first thought was I can stick them.

    Chopsticks are actually really easy to throw...the bamboo skewers are way more of a challenge due to the weight, or lack of....

    I saw a video of a Shaolin monk that could throw a sewing needle though a piece of window glass.
    They demoed that by suspending a balloon behind the window glass, not against it. He popped the balloon several times. When question on this skill he said it took several years of daily practice to be able to accomplish the feat. Impressive to watch.

    A really cool video bud.
    It always reminds me of that expression. ... "the deadliest weapon is the one in your hands"
    You pretty much got it covered from bows to slingshots to axes to needles and everything else in between. :tu::tu::tu::tu::tu:

    I like through nails, I sharpen a framing nailer on both sides with a grinder, they are heavy and can be thrown into just about anything

    I saw the old Daredevil movie with Ben Affleck in it, he had a villian in it called bullseye. He killed a guy with a straightened paperclip. It got me thinking, so I got a large paperclip and tried it on a solid wood door. It worked! The trick was to do it fast and whip it. Bruce Lee used to do this as a trick with chopsticks. He had power and speed to spare.

    The bamboo skewer I threw was way lighter than a stainless steel chopstick.... only the small dollar store ones...about 8 inches long and really thin...it's not about the weight...more about speed....
