Throwing knive

A depiction of a Ranger's throwing knife

Throwing knives
are short, with a "thick, heavy grip made of a series of leather discs set one above the other", and a brass crosspiece between the hilt and the blade. Throwing knives, as the name implies, are meant and balanced for throwing. It is thin at the hilt, widens considerably down its length, then narrows quickly to a sharp point. A throwing knife is carried by Rangers in a double scabbard along with the Ranger Saxe Knife as it is part of the compulsory Ranger Gear. These balanced knives have brass pommels and an expanding, then tapering blade. (Unlike the picture.)
