    Default Ninja Throwing Star

    My son was invited to a mates birthday party the other day.
    This lad is hard to buy for as he collects old Asian swords, in fact he gave my boy a sword for his birthday.

    After much thinking we descided to make him a shirikin.

    I rang our local S/S supplier but they wanted to much so we had a chat with a scrapy and he gave us the piece we required.
    4" x 4" x 1/8" plate.

    I drew the design up in CAD and the print out was glued to the metal.
    We then drilled out the centre and the anti crack holes.
    A very thin grinding blade cut out the shape.
    And we employed an air belt sander to sharpen the edges.

    A few hours work but very happy with the result.
    My son's mate loved it.

    Hi countryboy281,
    Thanks for the kind words.
    We were very pleased with it, so much so we nearly went down to the shops and bought him a present.
    Sense prevailed and he did get it.
    After all we still have the pattern.

    Yeah there are some great thinkers and even better doers on this site.
    login on here is better than buy a magazine on the subject.

    Keep well

    Careful boys and girls. Here in the states, some consider this illegal for possession. Cool project and awesome result none the less!

    Hi jontheturboguy,
    Is that right ?
    Is that every state in the US ?
    Good call, I do not recommend any one making or using these throwing stars.

    Each state has its own laws on knives, weapons, blades, and firearms. They are all different one way or another.

    Very nice finished star! I don't think a nicer piece can be purchased on the retail market. As JTTG "pointed" out (pun intended) states weapons laws can be easily misinterpreted. Be careful.

    Default nice

    Thats pretty cool I know for a fact that they a illegal to have in California period easiest way to tell which states they are illegal in is to check so of the websites that sell them because they list the states they cant ship to me myself i prefer throwing knives

    Thanks for the kind words chaps.
    When you have learnt how to work metal there is not much we can not make or fix.
    Very satisfying.
