Now that we are all reminiscing about our inner ninja; what were some of your favorite throwing stars? Does any one have photos of those early throwers?

Unfortunately no photos. One of my favorite was an eight or ten point. The points looked like miniature flathead screwdriver points. It was my favorite, I was accurate as hell with it. The design was fantastic, actually split my dragon board in half after about ten throws

I remember they had butter soft steel and came entirely blunt. But, it was no problem walking up to any retailer in and buying some when I was 12 or 13 - in New York City.

Yes, there were plenty that weren't that great but during the eighties there was such a selection that the steel was good quality and I had some decent stars made in seki

I'm taking this whole ninja revival movement to the next level; I made my own throwing star from a meat cleaver blade inspired by the ridiculous exaggerated shapes of the shurikens of my youth. The best part is it works pretty good.

That's badass! Impressive that it flew so good. I remember alot of funky shaped stuff as too but stayed with more traditional stars because I figured the odd shapes wouldn't work well. As we can see here, they can work quite well. Thanks again for taking the time to create and post these cool videos.

I'm glad someone besides me finds them entertaining; I sure do have fun doing them. Here's the next part of the ninja training series, featuring another goofy shaped home made thrower that somehow works so well a four year old can stick it.

Luckily , your aim seems to be good ...or I would fear for the passing cars on the street .

I missed my whole woodshed once and bounced one off the propane tank .

The wife was not amused ! 😱
