Everyone likes throwing knives! The simple sport of throwing a knife is fun. And no sound is more satisfying then a thrown knife as it “thunks” and sticks a wooden target. Whether you’re skilled at knife throwing or are just starting out, you know there’s also no fun in missing the target.
One solution is the Shuriken or throwing star. Used for centuries in China and Japan, it consists of no more than a flat piece of steel with 3 or more points. If you throw it overhand like a baseball, side arm, underarm or back hand like a flying saucer, it hits on at least one point every time.
Cold Steel's Sure Strike star is unlike the cheap, shoddy throwing stars you see at flea markets, guns shows, and in martial arts magazines. It’s made of extra thick, laser cut high carbon steel that’s been heat treated to a hard spring temper and is protected by a black, baked-on, epoxy finish. It’s fully sharpened and will stick every time. This set includes 3 Sure Strike throwing stars.
Out of the sure strikes, the light version stacks the best, throws accurately up to/around 30+ feet, but at higher ranges the light is a challenge to control. The light has good rotation and can be stacked thrown because the 2mm flatness.
