In Modern Warfare 2, what are throwing knives?

In MW2, what are throwing knives? Are they perks? Are they awards? And how do you select to use them (not unlock them)?

    Throwing knives are equipped to your class in multiplayer in the "Equipment" section. Since they're in the equipment section, you use the same button you would normally use to throw a frag or semtex or whatever, wheny uo hold down the button, a little cross-like aiming reticule comes up. The throwing knife doesn't replace your stabbing/melee knife nor does it replace a perk slot. Lastly, the throwing knife, like the melee knife, is a one-hit kill no matter what. You only get one throwing knife, however you can pick it back up by walking over to it and pressing the action/reload button or by using the Scavenger perk, which allows you to reload your loadout by walking over a dead enemy's body.

    They are a piece of equipment that you press RB on xbox 360 to throw. You only get on but you may pick tem up. Keep in mind that you need to access create a class at lvl 4 and level up to get them.

    as the other guy said, it is a piece of equipment that replaces your grenades, so it uses up the frag spot. It does quite a lot of damage. If you aim it at a person right, i think it's a 1 hit kill.

    A throwing knife is one of the options in equipment. It does not replace your stabbing knife. It is not a perk.
