Step 1: Supplies
-6 inch Rafter Nail
-Bucket of Water
Step 2: Nail Preporation
Step 3: Creating the Taper
*TIP: I like to make my tapers quite long, about 1 inch or so, remember that the longer your taper is the sharper your point will be. And the sharper your point is, the greater the performance of the Bo Shuriken is (You'll be surprised at how deep you can bury one of those things into a piece of wood with a well made point)*
Step 4: Single or Double Ended
Step 5: Throwing Techniques
Knife Grip: Hold the Bo Shuriken by one end a so that your thumb is holding the taper and a little bit of regular, be careful not to grip the point to heavily, between your index and thumb. When you release snap your arm straight as if there was a barbed wire fence below your arm and you do not want to be stabbed. This technique is best used with a double ended Bo Shuriken.
Spike Grip: Chamber the Bo Shuriken between your index, social, and ring fingers and use your thumb to hold the Bo Shuriken against your palm. When you throw release your thumb and slightly loosen your three-finger grip on the Bo Shuriken, however do not completely slacken the fingers or you will loose your barrel effect that this technique is known for. Again be sure to apply the fence theory when throwing. This technique is best used with a single ended Bo Shuriken.
Although I stated which grip works best for different Bo Shurikens it does not mean that it will work perfectly for you, all people are different when it comes to throwing so experiment and find out hat works best for you.
