Picture of How to make bo-shuriken
This is my tutorial on how to make bo-shuriken out of a stick of threaded metal. (works also without thread). These shuriken are of better quality and when performed well, they fly and hit very nice.

Materials youre gonna need:

-plyers (to grab the hot metal and temper it)
-your metal stick
-a Dremel or a bench grinder (grinder works better, i dont have one)
-a hacksaw (to cut your stick into size)
-wool (any color you like)
-a file / rasp
-a sharpy (to mark the center of your stick for balance)
-a grindingstone to sharpen your tip (final)

Step 1:

Your guide is very clear and the photos are very good. Unfortunately, I don't think I'd be able to throw that properly, hehehe. Easy to make, but hard to use!

i tested it out today, the fly & stick very nice. but cuz of their small weight they dont fly very far. but with enough power, i threw them about 1 inch deep into a wooden bench. so thats not the problem^^ and i just throw em like any other bo-shuriken...
