Step 1: Preparing Materials

You need to get some long, straight and hard steel wire or something similar. If it is rusty you need to clean it up.

Step 2: Making the Tip

You need to make a sharp tip on one side of wire. You can do it in few different ways. I use the tool on the image down. There is also very slow and not very good way.. to sharp it up with rasp. But you wont get smooth surface as with mechanical table grinder.

Step 3: Hardening the Tips

If you want you can harden the tips. You need to warm them up until they turn red and very hot. Then you need to cool it down really fast. You can use the items on images down.

Step 4: Finishing

When you are done the tips should be black or gray. After that put some wicked paint job and you are done. All you now need is place to practice and some good will. Good luck

    45% carbon?!? that is not steel...
    Ultra-high carbon steel
    Approximately 1.0–2.0% carbon content
    no steel have more than that!

    uniformity in size. that would also be a a good thing to mention. after all, diferent sizes will reqire different throwing power than others.

    okay, this is a really good method, but you really need to explain things, otherwise it isn't an instructable. You say there are differetn ways to sharpen the tip, but give onl one and you don't say what you used. That tool was called a mechanical table grinder. if you actually explain things, this would be a great instructable.
