The IKTHOF Gold Cup Knife tournament will use a double elimination system to determine a winner in a fair and equitable manner. Each thrower will throw the same three knives for each minimum distance: 1⁄2 spin (2 meters) by the blade, 1 spin (3 meters) by the handle, 1 1⁄2 spin (4 meters) by the blade, 2 spins (5 meters) by the handle, 2 1⁄2 spins (6 meters) by the blade, and 3 spins (7 meters) by the handle.

Targets will have 10 cm or 4-inch center (worth 5 points), 20 cm ring (worth 4 points), a 30 cm outer ring (worth 3 points), a 40 cm ring (worth 2 points), and a 50 cm ring (worth 1 point). Knives are scored as they stick, and each thrower must have 3 knives of the same length and style. Knives must be at least 12 inches long and no longer than 16 inches. It is very strongly suggested that knives weigh at least one ounce per inch or heavier to compete for the safety of the person in the next lane.
