Picture of How to Make a Shuriken Out of a CD!!!!!!

Do ever wish that you can own a Shuriken that can fly well like the one Naurto used? Well, you can own one right now under $10!!!!!!!!!!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!! WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! : This is a Shuriken that can still hurt people or living thihgs (even know that the edges aren't that sharp). Please don't throw it at people. It's not my fault if you want to be a fool.

Step 1: What You Need...

Picture of What You Need...

You'll need the following things:

1) an old CD
2) a roll of scotch tape
3) a knife-grinder
4) a permanent marker
5) a pair of scissor
6) a ruler
7) some sand paper
8) sliver or black or gray paint

Step 2: Tapeing the CD...

Cover the CD with Scotch tape on both sides for about 3 times. Doing this will help the CD not broken up after you cut it.

Step 3: The Shape--------the Begining...

Now, take your marker and ruler and your ready for the 3rd step. Use the ruler and draw a cross on the taped CD (as shown in the picture). Make sure the corners are 90 degrees. Next, turn the CD so the cross look like a X and draw a dot in the middle with the distance of 1.5 cm from the center (or in the middle of a 90 degree angle,look at all the pictures).

Step 4: The Shape--------Part 2....

Now, draw a line from the tip of a line of the cross (or X) and pass it through the dot, not passing the other ling of the cross. Each dot will be passed by only two lines.Repeat for the rest and you should be finish with the shape. Look at the pictures for a better understanding.

Step 5: Cutting the CD...

Follow the lines, cut the un-needed parts out with a big scissor ( like i did in the picture). Be careful, the CD might break during the cutting, and if it did, just put some more tape on it.

Step 6: Sharpening the Edges...

Take your knife-grinder and start grinding the shuriken on the edges so it look like it's sharp. Do it to every edge and also the back.

Step 7: The Painting...

For the last step, put the shuriken on a piece of paper and paint one side at a time. After one side had dry, paint the other side. After 1 day, you can use it.

Step 8: Finish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The only thing this can do is impale someones eye. Its way too light to be effective in any combat situation. Unless you are fighting a toddler or something. This would probably stick into cardboard tho if you throw it hard enough.

its soo cool

If you leave the inner corners at an angle it will cause a stress point and eventually cracks will form. I suggest you radius the angles at the bases where opposing points meet!

If you have a scroll saw, use it for this. It works great!!

activescout (author)2009-05-19

that, my friend, is painters tape aka masking tape. scotch tape, or "cellotape," is clear

Morriscow (author)2010-03-07

 if you use a cd-r you can pry off the bottom, which won't splinter

You can use a razor knife and cut the perimeter and then bend it off the un-needed parts. Grind the edge to make it sharp.
