Has anyone tried the bo shuriken that Peter Boylan sells through Mugendo Budogu? They are pretty pricey at $47 a pop but I really like them. I have never tried senban shuriken but sooner or later I will.

Could someone/anyone, please, e-mail the link for Mr Ed Green to my email? I have been seeking genuine senban shuriken for as long as I can remember. It would make me more happy than you could ever know. Thank you - Crafty

Would it be possible for myself to recieve this link, as well? I would be much appreciative. Either via pm or e-mail (kaiouss@gmail.com) would be fine.

Thanks so much.

I buy some thick sheets of steel for senban and 3/8" steel rods for bo from Lowes and make my own. Granted the quality of the steel sucks, and the craftsmanship is pretty shabby, but I enjoy making them then throwing them. Not to mention you can save a lot of cash. I think I have learned a few lessons in physics from this too. Poor quality throwing weapons are VERY hard to throw unless you do it absolutely correctly. A good thing?

Lots of good lessons to be learned making your own tools.BTW the thinner a senban or any other Hira type shuriken the better.The other thing to remember is that, they were mostly made from iron in the old days not carbon steels.
They were a single use throw away weapon (in general) so did not need to be made from expencive to produce carbon steels.So the soft metals are fine to make them from. I have ones made from mild steel, copper, brass and carbon steels that I use.If the tips get damaged on the softer metal ones while training you can just lightly tap them back straight with a rock hammer etc.I would also guess that the iron ones would have had several advantages over steel ones in real combat but I will leave that for you guys to figure out
