BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - One man's passion for an unusual pastime.
On any given day you can find Luke Haynes hard at work in his garage, practicing his favorite sport...knife throwing. On a lark, he purchased a set of throwing knives online, watched some YouTube videos, and before long he was hooked.
"I've always thought knife throwing was kind of cool, says Haynes. " Like, if I saw it in a movie, I thought to myself, wow, this guy must have a lot of skill, right? You know, to get that little, tiny point into where it's supposed to be."
After a year and a half of dedicated practice, he's hitting the mark. He recently won the California state championship for knife and tomahawk throwing in the no-spin category. Now he's bent on spreading his love of the sport and giving others an edge.
"Anybody can do it. You know, it's a lot of fun."
