All about Axe Throwing
Axe throwing is a sport that involves the throwing of an Axe to target which has a bull’s-eye and intentions of the competitors will be hitting the bull’s-eye or anywhere near it in order to get points. Axe throwing is our fun filled activity that is perfect for date nights, a night out with family or friends, an evening out with co-workers and even for teambuilding. The target of the sport is usually a 36 inches wide target consisting of five rings which are 4 inches wide. You can make a target by yourself at home if you have a bit of carpentry skills and this can be done by accessing wood from a local timber store which will however be particularly difficult as it will take you a lot of time to be able to come out with a perfect target and it is therefore recommended that you access the sport in a local restaurant. You can easily create interactions and getting to know people more by going out to enjoy Axe throwing together in a place that is outside the home.
Axe throwing can be traced back to the earliest forms of tools that are created by the early man in the Stone Age period whether produce some of the most intelligent tools to make work easier. The oldest tools had one that looked like an axe and it is generally made of stone which makes it difficult to place an Axe head on due to the lack of a shaft. Non-shaft axes disappeared at the beginning of the Iron Age where axes that had all with the handle replaced the former ones to make work easier. These were further used in war as they proved to be effective tools in killing an opponent. In order to make soldiers to be skilful while throwing axes, they invented targets from which they could practice throwing axes at and these improved their shooting abilities with the throwing Axe.
It is only recently that the throwing Axe has been retrieved as an old soldier technique to be given another use that is of recreation.
Safety should always come first when engaging the sport of Axe throwing particularly because you’d be doing the sports together with people that you love. Make sure that everybody standing 6 feet away from the target area as this is the general distance to ensure safety. Also, it is good to ensure that you don’t sharpen the blade too much as you could easily cut yourself while playing the sport.
