The Sure Strike is our interpretation of the classic Shuriken or throwing star. Used for centuries in China and Japan, the throwing star consists of a well-balanced piece of flattened steel with 3 or more sharp points. When thrown 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. They are precision laser cut from high carbon steel and heat treated to a durable spring temper before sharpening. They are then treated with a black, baked-on epoxy finish to protect them from the rigors of the elements and repeated throwing.
