FAQ

When will a sold-out knife be available again?

If a product is sold-out, it means we are making more as fast as possible. To ensure that you don’t miss the next batch, please join the email list and you will be notified when there is an estimated time of availability, and again when the product is available. We do not accept reservations or pre-orders on stock products. We do not provide personalized notifications.


Do you ship to my country? What is the shipping fee?

We ship worldwide. Shipping is flat-rate – $10 to the US, $30 to Canada, and $40 everywhere else. See shipping and ordering for more details.


What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept credit cards, PayPal, and US money orders. See shipping and ordering for more details.


Why are designs changing and often unavailable?

Knives are now produced on a batch-by-batch production strategy. Price, availability, steel grade, steel thickness, weight, design shape, and all other parameters are subject to change – and likely to change – with each batch. There is always a lapse of availability between batches. The only sure way to build a matching set of knives is to purchase from one batch.


When will my order ship?

Each product page displays a ready-to-ship date. Orders ship when all products are ready. See shipping and ordering for more details.


Are the prices for a single item or a set?

All prices are per single item. We strive to offer the best value in American-made throwing knives made from virgin steel. If you find a better deal, let us know!


Can I buy a product that isn’t listed on your website?

Currently we are not accepting custom orders. If a product is not listed, it is not available for purchase. See the news page for product availability details.


What knives do you recommend?

We are known for making the best no-spin throwing knives in the world, and the North Wind and sister knife East Wind are our finest offerings. In the past decade, we have shipped many thousands of North Wind and East Wind knives to over fifteen countries, near and far. For those who prefer a more specialized knife, the Arrow is another proven model that we make in partnership with Tom Hampich, the designer. The buyer is encouraged to read about the various styles of no-spin knife throwing and select one style that is appealing. The throwing style will determine the ideal knife length and balance, and a suitable knife can then be selected. Most of our knives are 10 to 11 inches long because this size is compatible with most no-spin throwing styles. When in doubt, select the knife that is visually appealing and available. Please email with any questions.


Do you have a physical storefront? Is there a distributor of Flying Steel knives near me?

No, this website is the only place to purchase new Flying Steel gear.


Can you (or I) sharpen the edges of a Flying Steel knife?

Flying Steel knives are made to withstand the abusive nature of knife throwing. The steel hardness and bevel grind angle are optimized for maximum toughness and safety rather than slicing or edge-holding ability. We do not offer sharp edges. See use and care info for more details.
