Step 1: Cut to length

first, get some 3/8" metal dowel, and cut it to about 6"-8" depending on the size of your hand.

Step 2: Sharpen and quench

sharpen the metal rod to a long point.
a short tip will equal more frictin and less penetration

Step 3: Tassel (optional)

just tassel the string like on the original

Step 4: New technique!=<)

ther is nothing wrong with the old throwing technique, i just improvised.

hold the needle with the bottom 3 fingers wrapped around and the thumb and index finger resting on the needle. if this is confusing look at the pic.

you swing your arm the same but this straitens the flight path

Step 5: Have dangerous fun!

throw at cardboard boxes, birds, and your little brother!

not really, dont throw them at people. one hit in a vital spot, and the target is dead

any more wallet friendly ways, since i cannot afford a bench grinder or know anyone who would let me use it. would a metal file work? i have a course and a fine one. i know that might take a while, but i can be very patient. if i use the course one to make the general point, would i be able to make it sharp with the fine file?
Yeah, a file would work. it might speed things up to use a torch to heat the tip and then file it (metal is softer when it's hot). I got a torch from walmart for 15 bucks. Also, bench grinders aren't terribly expensive. Mine cost $50 and it works fine.

this step was not very helpful. i would be very grateful if you added some steps to this, part with the tassel. i only see string twisted around and i can not tell hot it is attached i see no knots. so if you can add steps to this i would much appreciate it.

for those who don't watch naruto!? are you serious that is not a reliable source my friend, senbons are for silent killing, like a garrot wire. It is held horezontily between the thumb and fore-finger and is pushed into the juggler in a fast motion.

well often ninjas would tip in in some sort off poison or bury it in mud to make it rust and cause, i cant remmember what but it is a fatal infection, and also sometime bury it in 5H!T for infection, wich most infections killed back then.

these look like senbons ( the jap needle things for you people who dont watch naruto) but the senbon are thinner and are sharpened on both sides, senbon are also commonly used as actupuncture tools and as some ninja would do is dip them in posin so the needles would be fatal........... wow that was quite a bit of writing...... for me anyway im 13
ohhhhhh one more thing fome me, sometimes senbons can be 1 sided, so i can see why some people think these are senbons

dude people like that show including me and if you have a problem you can go suck your butt along with everybody else i hate. and the music is NOT elevator music smart one
naruto isn't a terrible show, but it really does not have much to do with real ninja at all.... which is pretty much standard for most anime, great entertainment.... just about as realistic as..... well, giant robots with beam cannons! these are shuriken, just a different variety to the hira shuriken or shaken that the mass media seems to have brainwashed people into believing they are, when in fact hira shuriken were used by far fewer schools than normal bo shuriken
Don't watch the show, read the anime! SERIOUSLY!
Yea, that's what I meant... Read the MANGA!

a good bo-Shurkin is tanto pointed on four sides, those in a properly trained hand (not as shown above) can do serious damage play safe boys. and in intrest of my crediblity i am 8 years trained in Ninjitsu and Naruto is an insult to my art (but i love the show all the same!)

do u throw them or do you blow them out of a bambo pipe im confused i only know how to speak japanese not bloody use their weapons
throw them anyone can see that. he said to change it to your HAND size. and if you can speak it you should know the meaning of shuriken
ok but if you look they are thin so you could use them as a dart ok
yes, but thats not what you where confused about
can i try using a screwdiver, or is it ir-relivant
