Killing time in the backyard while the rib-eyes cook? You could play it safe and lob beanbags at a wooden board. Or you could add a dose of danger with the SOG Throwing Hawks. Expertly balanced and intended to be tossed at target, each steel weapon features paracord-wrapped handle for grip and a sharpened straight edge blade that sinks into everything from Styrofoam to cedar. As you repeatedly send them flying end-over-end, you'll wonder why you ever played Cornhole in the first place. And in case you're heading out into the field: The 10.75-inch long axes cut through kindling as as easily they cut through the air. $64; sogknives.com
Lesson: Tomahawks are far superior to horseshoes.
