Advice On Making Throwing Knives

I've just started throwing knives and would like to make my own. I was hoping for advice on what to use and how to make my throwing knives.

What type steel should I use?
Should I forge them or do stock removal?
Do I heat treat them and if YES what do you recommend for the suggested steels?

Please feel free to email me at

Thank you for any and all help!

I would start with just mild scrap steel. maybe not use HTed steel at all. Chuckin a knife tends to go against what a knife is made for and wouldnt put alot of time into HT or steel choice. If your forging, try a HC RR spike and water harden it. It wont hold a great edge but thats not what your looking for anyway.
