Step 5: Detailing

Once you have the outline roughed in, you can go in with the grinder and create your final shape. Here, we're using a tabletop grinder, but you can also use the grinding stones on your rotary tool. They can be very helpful in getting in to the more detailed areas.

Don't worry about any heavy grind marks or mistakes. These are meant to look a little rough to accentuate their individuality. I actually prefer the batarangs with the circular saw marks on them to a highly polished batarang. They're one-time use items, after all.

<p>Great Instructable! Love<br>the nod to safety. A few years ago I myself cut out some different<br>batarangs using similar techniques, which you can see from the photo<br>I posted. The Dark Knight trilogy is my favorite Batman series.</p>
<p>Those look great! The curves are not easy to do!</p>
<p>Yes...</p>
<p>Nice work. Can you actually throw them?</p><p>I voted</p>
Yes! We've thrown them a bunch.
<p>Of course! They are just like shurikens.</p>

You took the words right out of my mouth.
<p>I always vote for Batman stuff! Great build!</p>
<p>Epic build my friend..!!<br>You just got my vote :) </p>
<p>Thank you! Your Batman wall is fantastic.</p>
<p>Thanks for the tutorial! I made these with my son. I got some 24&quot; sawblades that worked great.</p>
<p>Go big or go home, right?! Those are super impressive, enough for a bat cave.</p>
