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.

The Sure Strikes aren't like the cheap, shoddy throwing stars you see at flea markets, guns shows, and in martial arts magazines. That's because they are laser cut from high carbon steel that's been heat treated to a hard spring temper before sharpening and then given a black, baked-on epoxy finish to protect them from the elements.

2.0 Rating Lotsa Steel - 1/4/2013
Reviewer: Prepared not scared
Had these for a month now. True, they are not like the flea market models, they are actually steel. That being said, they cannot be sharpened. I spent 30 mins with a 5-piece Gator grind kit and an 18 volt DeWalt. Minimal progress on only one of the four tines. The tips are somewhat sharp out of the box, but the steel immediately thickens to 1/4" as the four points form the center. I have tried every tree, plywood, etc, but this expansion limits any penetration beyond the first 1/2". Out of the box, you will NOT 'bury' this item in anything, from any distance. And if your "tree" is wearing so much as a sweatshirt, don't expect ANY "sap." Throwing for food or survival is useless - get a knife.
