Step 1: Getting ready

Picture of Getting ready
Ok. first if your like me than you have probably had a model rocket and either lost it or broke it. So if you look in your model rocket kit their should be a little medal disk that the rocket launches off of. So get that out and get ready to make an awsome ninja star!!!

Step 2: Tin sips

You will need some good tin snips so that you can cut the mettal plate.

Step 3: Draw your design

Next your going to want to draw your star on your pad.
You can make a 5 star or a 6 star what ever you like. Mine's a 5 star.

Step 4: Start cutting!!!!!

Next your going to want to put you pad in a vice, get your tin snips and start cutting out you star.

Step 5: Keep cutting!!!!

Keep cutting until the stars completely cut out.

Step 6: Now trim it up.

Now your going to want to trim up the edges and make the points are really pointy.

Step 7: Sharpin it!!!

Now all you need to do is take a file to it and sharpin it until it's as sharp as you desire. and thats it!!! It will bend if you throw it really hard. but if you sharpin it enough than you won't need to throw it that hard.
Another thing you can do so it fly's straight is to soder 2 washer to both sides of the star.
So have fun with it. thanks!!!!!

turn it off!
FYI, CONCERNING THE RUST, BE IT BY ACCIDENT OR WHAT. tHE TRUE NINJA STARS ARE NOT NICE SHINY EMBOSSED WEAPONS, BUT THEY WERE VERY SIMILAR TO THIS AND PUT IN PILES OF ANIMAL DUNG TO "INTENTIONALLY" RUST. THE REASON WAS TO INFECT THE TARGET WITH LOADS OF BACTERIA. THE STARS WERE NOT LETHAL WEAPONS BUT JUST DETERANTS TO STOP AN ENEMY PERSUIT OR AGAIN CAUSE A LETHAL INFECTION LATER. "THROWING STARS" WERE NEVER INTENDED TO BE A LETHAL WEAPPON! GIVE THE KID A BREAK HE IS MORE ACUERATE THEN MOST INSTRUCTABLES!
Please?

Real Ninjas only use 4 pointed stars
they even use 2 pointed ones. so dont think your all smart
 What no they dont. "Real Ninjas" as you put it use 5,6,and 7 pointed as well. Look up on google or something for a ninja museum and it'll show you more then just a 4 pointed star

Stars are cool, but remember that in most states, if not every state, throwing stars are illegal weapons. Just getting caught with this is a serious charge, usually a felony. So, while you can make these things pretty easily and play around with them on your own property, you need to remember all the brainwashed people who think you shouldn't own anything that resembles a weapon. Incidentally, I think you should be able to own anything you can build with your own two hands, guns, bombs, cars, planes, boats, robots, computers, or well, even a cannon.
ya i think you should beable to have throwing stars as long as its in your prperty cuz who would rob a bank with them a 8 year old could make thet with cliper and a file
O, um well......... Does it mean anything if they sell them at a store in the local mall? Course thats the same place that sells "paperweights" *cough*CRACKPIPES!!!!*cough*cough*
not all of them some had more points

you did a good job, but just one point to clear up, ninja "stars" were actually four pointed not the traditional five point stars

oh oops forgot to add something. I think you can also make this from a tomato can lid. I think I saw it somewhere on another I'ble. ... I think your I'ble is really good tho still.

hey i know. no need 2 shout... I think it's a good instructable too. It's actually one of the best instructables i've ever seen considering it's his first... even tho the stars look cooler without rust. Oh yes, I almost forgot, your'e right about the rust thing, I've read it sumwhere, but these probably not supposed 2 be used as weps. that would be illegal.

can this like shoot though anything if u throw it real hard? like pepsi cans? or things like that? otherwise nice instructable... P.S. if u want to take away the rust on the star ive tried rubbing rust with an eraser it works a bit if you work on it...for a loooooooong time...

You know i'm not sure... but i'm guessing it can if you soder some weights to the side. but with out weights it's kinda hard to aim... but idk try it and see what happens. so yea i'll try that eraser thing. thanks!
i made mine kinda like this, but w/ sheet metal instead. i have like 20 already made. they work gr8, and go in really deep.
