Super Glue

Electrical Tape

Nickles, or Quarters could work as well, but I used Nickles, Specifically 2 for each star.



Alright, first decide what blades your going to use, how many and all that good stuff, since itís what I took pictures of, Iíll show you the procedure for making a 4 bladed star.

First off, when using four blades, you can choose from either of these 2 Patterns:




I chose to do the second one because itís stronger, but in things like 5 and 6 star blades your forced to do something similar to the first pattern.

Start by using your Super glue and gluing the blade to one of the nickles like so:


Press the blade there for at least 30 seconds to allow the glue to set, trust me, it makes them last way longer, do that with every blade and with the finishing Nickle. Now repeat with a second blade according to the patter your doing, for me it was this:


Rinse and Repeat until you have something similar to this:


Alright, I wont bother to put a picture for this step, But add some extra glue around the edges of your blades, then slather some on top of the blades and press your second Nickle down, remember to hold for at least 30 seconds.

Now Take your tape and cut off about a 9 inch strip, Place it on you Nickle and begin wrapping so that you go from this:


To This:


Now Wrap the other Corners so itís from this:


To your Finished Product, This:



So your done, let the Glue dry for a good hour before using it, it will help your stars live a lot longer, Theyíll stick into walls, just remember:Your throwing star can and probably will be destroyed if thrown at a concrete wall, so donít do it, stick to gouging family and friends.

Who said Chinese? Shuriken (the proper name) are traditional Japanese weapons that were used by warriors.

To be fair, super glue is a stupid idea as well. You'd need to use a 2 part epoxy to even stand a chance with using glue, you would want to use proper stanley blades instead of those exacto-knife-esc blades he guy's using there.

Also, ductape would make alot more sense than using electrical tape, its stronger, more hard wearing, and alot stickier.
If it was up to me i'd spot weld them on... but i'm presuming most people in this thread couldn't do that, so whatever.

To be fair, these are the worst idea ever, shuriken are dangerous, home made shuriken are just a terrible idea.

However, i must give you props for actually taking the time to do something productive with your time, as well as making an alright thread about it.

I would probably make it good and throw it and cut my finger throwing it wrong or something. They look fun though. My friend had a big ass throwing knife once so we threw it at trees and stuff it was awesome

9mm's are worthless without the gun.

Pretty sweet, probably ain't the best best quality, but still. I bought 3 for $5 here, but I guess if you can't buy 'em, make 'em.
