CS80SSE: Light Sure Strike Bulk Pack of 12
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.

Best throwing stars in the market
I own a martial arts school and have a throwing target in the back. I throw these everyday. I bought my first set more than two years ago and they are still (after several thousand throws) going strong. They work great and look great. I have all three weights and like them all. Excellent product.

If you want to learn to throw knives and tommahawks, this is the place to start. I have owned 6 of these light throwing stars and found them so good, I bought another bulk pack before Cold Steel will discontinue these. These are getting harder and harder to find. And the price of the twelve pack is an excellent value. They are super tough, so much so that they have dug a twelve inch diameter hole in the 2X6 target that I have been using for the past two years. They are steel tempered and the tips are hardened. These bury themselves about 1/2 inch consistently. I would hate to be hit by one-- one would bury itself up to the base. My target is kiln dried and made of hard spruce. After throwing my originals for 2 years, they are still very sharp. The only problem you will have with them is when you throw them at the target and you wind up burying one star over another--they tend to raise burrs which you have to file off . Of course, it would make a lot more sense to put a number of bulls eyes on your target and only throw one or two, but the point is that these stars take enormous abuse. Cold Steel came up with three thicknesses of stars--a heavy, medium and light. This light star is much more adequate and I frankly cannot understand why anyone would want to throw a meidium or heavy--these are powerful enough just as is. I purchased these in addition to a number of throwing knives, but in truth, I don't use the knives, because these are so much safer. With a throwing knife, you run the risk of the knife coming back to hit you. Gil Hibben tells the story of an exhibit he was doing in which one of his knives came back and caught him just above his kidney in this manner, and he had been throwing for more than 20 years--he almost died. The point is that this is a lot safer, cheaper and will teach you the most important fundamental skill necessary to learn--hitting what you are aiming at--and after two years of off and on practice, I still cannot put them all exactly where I want them. It is a lot harder than it looks. This is where it starts--get them while you can.
