Introduction: Quick and Dirty Shuriken (Throwing Star)

Are you tired of watching Ninja Turtles and want to do some nija-ing yourself? This project is for you!


This is a sharp, dangerous object. Handle with extreme caution and only throw at a throwing target.

I am not responsible for any injuries caused by this weapon.

Use at your own risk!

Step 1: Get the Stuff You Need.

1. 3 utility knife blades

2. bolt and nut

3. pliers and screwdriver

Step 2: Put the Bolt Through the Hole.

Step 3: Add the Other 2 Blades With the Cutting Edges in the Same Direction.

Step 4: Add the Nut.

Step 5: Batten It Down.

Step 6: When You're Done...

When you're done having fun with your new throwing star, loosen the bolt and fold up the blades!

Did you use standered blades?

Yes, just make sure that the wide ones. This helps the star fly better. 
Please be safe!

could you use less blades?

awesome. could u do it with more blades?


Sure, but it would be a lot harder to throw because the extra blades would get in the way.

You could be more likely to cut yourself when you throw it.
