Demon Shadow-Windmill Shuriken Answered

Hmm.... I have seen all these shurikens on Instructables, but none of them have pleased me. I think it would be cool if someone made the windmill shuriken....


This one <link> is not too bad. I own a hand made set that are a bit heavier, but it would be beyond the scope of my "home shop" to recreate them.

I didn't know you're into ninjas...... or Naruto for that matter...

Oh. about 30 years ago (in my early 20's) I had gathered some weaponry (a nunchuck, which I no longer have; a set of Shaken; a set of throwing knives ( which looked a lot like these, but were much cheaper in grade and price; a homemade hand fashioned Bo, not unlike the manufactured one I picture here (pic taken from online since I no longer have my bo, either); and a (completely off the subject) a 1909 Argentine Bayonet (in its scabbard) with a leather frog (fairly worn), the blade's length being 15 1/2 in; and in the category of "things lost", a hand forged Broad sword (beat out of a pickup truck's leaf spring my me at the small forge I had at the time).

I was young once too :-) Naruto was not around at the time, but there was Kung Fu (the tv series), and other sources of similar stimulation ;-)


Ngeh, you're cooler than I thought. And you're already very cool to start with.

If I remember, I will take a few pics of my Shaken (they are not impressive at all), and the throwing knives (even LESS impressive) LOL

Here you go.....sorry the dragon is not very visible on the Shaken....and the last two pics are from a belt knife pair I have.

it looks like blood on the last ones..... O_O Goodharts an assasin!

so...you're not an assasin? :(

When they are bothersome inside the house, I kill flies, and nats (and an occasional moth or ant) but that is about it......the weapons are just a wee bit big for them though LOL

Well i imagine it takes great skill to take down a gnat with a throwing knife...

and even more so with a Shaken. Leaves a lot of holes in the walls too, in the mean time ;-)

The GoodHart Fight club.....he's nice to you before he beats you up LOL

If I were less lazy, there would be an image of a ninja turtle with Goodhart's face on it in this post.

No, I'm ruining it for you. Perhaps we could team up? Fibonacci sequence!!!

You're quick! But you forgot something! Im a 14 year old with no friends and internet connection!!!! ROFL!!

Well theres your problem. I am the same as you....i mean....w/e

And, in case you were at all interested in seeing it unsheaved, here is the bayonet beside it's scabbard:


yeah, i don't think I'd try throwing that saw blade at a tree trunk. One of the saws might fall off and hit me...!

If made out of hardened steel blades, without proper de-tempering first, yes; it could just be.

Hmmmmm...... The Fumashuriken, Kagefusha eh? That'll be a bit hard.

I'm trying to make one (That wont kill anybody)That is relatively cheap. PVC pipe 5X8 Index Cards Computer Paper Duck-tape Gorilla Glue :D (Not that everybody can get hold of this stuff. I Just take bottles from me Schools Wood-shop.) But so far everything I have tried either broke upon impact with anything, or fell apart on its own.

that would be cool

Perhaps you should give it a shot.... Nothing like a lil' "If you want it done right, you gotta do it yourself" attitude...

Actually, I was thinking of breaking off the handle of four saws and somehow putting them together.
