I ever had the same problem as you until I discovered that it isnt really a object that you can buy.

It is a special attack when playing unarmed (with your fists). If you make some distance from a guard hold down the attack button to "grap" sand. Then press attack again to trow it.

Epic question :P

If you go to the training arena in Morrigiani / Villa and speak with the man, under special attacks there is something called Sand Throwing ( or something along those lines ), press on that and then you'll be able to do it, then you just need some distance to your targets and hold down the attack button when using your fists.

yeah u can use it when ever BUT....you have to be unarmed[punching mode] and instead of tapping the attack button hold it down and ezio will swoop down and scoop up a handful of sand, ready to toss it in some 1s face[let go of attack to throw it]. usally i step back when they attack or maybe punch em or something,do the scoop sand thing and wait till the bad guy is a step or two away. then u can do wat ever you want..its like a s,oke bomb but last longer when a bunch o ppl r near itll sand em all if theyre near

Yeah, I learned the hard way about going back to the training circle at the villa. I was just fooling around near the end of the game when I stumbled upon the fact that you could buy new moves there. I was like crap I could have been using those. P.S. It takes awhile to get that achievement, just get a lot of guys and keep throwing sand until you get it.

Got mine by accident, I didn't even know how to throw sand. About the buying new moves, the double-handed one is worthless. I thought it would toss the other's weapon away, but it's just a very expensive, slow, ugly attack.

Best way to do it is to get a bunch of guards chasing you then run under an arch or through a tunnel so theyre all together. Then stop, target someone, and quickly throw sand by holding [] or X for Xbox.
