The Whirlwind II is a fun throwing star with four-points and four sharpened edges. It features black finished 1045 steel and comes with a black nylon pouch. Measures 3.35" across and weighs 1.8 ounces.
The throwing star has always primarily been a weapon of the orient. They were originally developed in China. Later, the throwing star technique (also called Ninjitsu and Shuriken) was mastered by the Japanese. Throwing stars are often very decorative and artistic making them highly desired by collectors. But their beauty does nothing to diminish their deadly power.
