Description
CS80SSB: Medium Sure Strike
Cold Steel

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.

Our 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.

All three share the same sized diameter, but are varied in weight class due to the differences in steel thickness among the three models. Maximize your fun and get all three sizes! These are the stars that stick every time, the Sure Strikes from Cold Steel.

Cons: None
Oh Yeah! I will buy again!
Got these as a Xmas gift my 13 yr old grandson. Without any previous experience, he had these stars sticking every throw using overhand throw technique. All his buddies lined up for their turn and now want stars too! Make sure you guys get at least 3. Tough finish on the stars holds up to 2x4 target well. Really, no cons to this product. I would buy a leather case if available.

Serious trowing star.
Good weight and good size for trowing star ever. Cold Steel did the great job again! This trowing star also very tough. Many times it fall down from my hard wood target and hit on concrete floor with no bending tip. Also easy to carry size with trowing star purse, I got from made in China one. You can sharpen it but I not recommend that, you gonna cut your self first. Just sharpen the tip is OK. Also good for practicing but price is quite expensive just for practice. Go get the light one for practicing is better choice. Work well on ply and solid wood target. Don't use cardboard for this thing, it will bounce back to you or some one. Be very careful when you trow this thing. You can wound or kill someone with this thing. This is serious trowing star!
