When did axe throwing become a thing?
The oldest tool known to mankind is the AXE. Originally made from stone it served as an aid in foraging, hunting, protecting and building. In around 400-500 AD the first axes used as projectiles, known as throwing axes were used. These axes had a short handle, a sharp thick axe head and were used as weapons during the Great Migration.
Over time the axe has been forged and shaped out of many materials, from a pear shaped chipped stone, to bronzed flared blade, large broad iron blades and to modern times of steelhead with wood handles.
As a sport Axe Throwing has been an activity at Lumberjack competitions from the early 1800’s and has continued to grow from local gatherings in rural backyards to urban axe throwing venues across the world, gaining momentum with local communities and the formation of WATL; the World Axe Throwing League.
