Obviously I'm no knife-throwing expert, but I would think you could get a LOT more speed and penetrating power with an overhand throw versus the underhand throws Jaimi and the expert were using.

Hang on, does this mean the specific myth they were testing was James Coburn in The Magnificent Seven?

But FWIW, yeah, you get a lot more speed (and accuracy) as well as energy into the target with an overhand throw, but it needs the right flick of the wrist as well. Though I say this as someone who's crap at knife-throwing...
