|English term or phrase: fins|
|The term occurs in a SF novel in an episode with dart knives. This particular knife has 'a triangular cross-section to the blade, guards that double as fins for throwing, and a long tang behind that with another fin on its end.'|
Mir ist klar, dass guard so etwas wie ein Hand- oder Fingerschutz ist, aber mit den 'fins' und der 'long tang' kann ich nichts anfangen.
If you are talking about darts, the weight is very important and, depending on your wallet, you start to think about which fins you can afford, feathers, plastic etc.
