I can recall 3 times when throwing an object has bought me time and/or saved my life. 2 were complete misses but bought me enough time to regain the upper hand. And 1 was a direct hit. None of these were with knives. In my day to day life I practice throwing various objects, and I find nails screws screwdrivers and even chopsticks perfect for throwing.
