Knife throwing (chief of the impalement arts) is a popular exhibition at carnivals, western shows, and sideshows. The two classic booklets reprinted here cover knife styles, grip and throwing techniques, and a variety of trick throws sure to amaze an audience. How to Throw Knives, by Elmer Putts, was published in 1935, and The Art of Knife Throwing, by Frank Dean, was first published in 1937. Many knife stunts are dangerous.
