Introduction: Improved Bo Shuriken

ok first, i am only being more creative with littlemog92s bo shuriken instructable.
no comments from you losers who think i am copying!

holy crap! littlemog92 took off all his instructables!

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

    I did it although I don't have a camera so no pictures I use my grand fathers bench grinder and a hacksaw super easy and really fun to throw

    but shuriken are in a star formation and senbon are in a needle formation and this instructable sure looks like a needle

    have you ever heard of the BO staff BO shuriken are the original form of star shuriken they were much easier and cheaper to produce than a star patterned one

    yea but a bo-shuriken aren't normal shurikens these r bo shurikens =P

    bo- shuriken are actually the original ones

    its called a BO SHURIKEN hello!

    they are bo shuriken, bo shuriken are the kind of needle-dart ones and ordinary shuriken are the star ones

    si,senor! now we are learning.

    a those are shuriken and no they arnt senbon and senbon have 2 sharpend sides

    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.

    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.

    thank you so much its been 2 years lol

    nice illustration :P YOU RULE M.S PAINT!!!

    dude, have you read ANY of these other comments?
