Good Addition to the Arsenal.

Good quality steel could easily be sharpened. Enough weight for good penetration depth….But, I am a little disappointed that they would go thru all that trouble to make such a good looking throwing star to ONLY put a tapper on one side. Yup, flat nothing…..But with a little time on the grinder I’ll fix that!

Decent, easy to throw star. The very tip on one of the points broke after it bounced off a target and hit concrete but with some grinding was able to bring it back to a point. It's just a bit shorter. Other than that, it's a fun thrower.

Take it from a real ninja...

I've used a lot of shurikens in my lifetime. These are pretty decent. They aren't sharp, but with any effort they can be (I did sharpen mine and they hold an edge better than I thought they would). As far as throwing them anyone can make these stick without almost any effort. Want something better? Make your own. Want something decent for a good price? These work fine.

Ok, so I just got these in (I ordered three) and I was almost disappointed. No edge at all. But then I threw one. Stuck perfectly with the first throw. The weight is perfect, and the spin is awesome. Im blown away. Thanks budk and thanks honshu. Definitely a must have for anybody looking for a good throwing weapon.

To address the comment below on sharpness,...I have known no modern shuriken to be sharpened like a blade....would be dangerous to throw,....like a throwing knife that it too sharp,...but yes traditionally they were made out of all kinds of common items and sometimes sharped depending on what the owner wanted them for. Now,....I had pretty high hopes as I have two Honshu knifes and have been pretty pleased with the quality and value. The size and weight are good, but the tips bend regularly. Kinda surprised me really. Maybe a tempering issue, but the metal seems too soft to me. The black rubs off too, but I've found that to be a pretty common issue with throwing weapon. The pouch is ok, sturdy and nice enough,....but doesn't close at the top and only holds one. For me personally would be kinda nice if they had one that held a few, like maybe 3 or 4. But that's just me,...:-) All in all I nice purchase, 3 stars for bending pretty much every time. Might be nice if they were a little less in cost, maybe in a three pack though,...hint-hint. :-)

Very Satisfied

To begin, I have no prior experience with any type of throwing stars. I was looking for different items to get myself for my birthday and this caught my eye for several reasons. First was the 1065 steel construction. Next was the Honshu brand. And lastly I liked the size. The star comes in a United Cutlery/Honshu retail box and was well packaged inside with moisture resistant packs. As the other reviewer notes, the edges are not sharpened. After learning a few pointers from a friend on how to throw, I gave it a try and loved how the size and weight made it seem easy to put it on target. For me, I think it was well worth the money.

There are no sharp edges on any of blades on this star. Just points. Ok for the money. Most of my other Shurikens are sharp on all edges.
