a good way to make 'handles' is by getting some resin (any car place) or epoxy resin (any DiY store) covering the handle in it... then rolling it in rough sand, or something else 'lumpy' then giving it another coat of resin, or epoxy.... takes about 2 minutes of actual work, and gives a easily made grip.

same could be done by winding cord round the shaft, and coating it with the same resin/epoxy

once that stuff drys, you'll have a hard wearing grip, that can be fixed (if broken) in about 10 seconds.... cheap too.

for throwing weapons though... the handle is usualy known as the end without a point.... not the end with a handle. so its all personal choise... theres no technical need for a 'grip'

what happend to your shuriken nath
i threw one and it snapped, needless to say i was rather p*ssed so i sent them back and decided to have ago at making my own and what ive ended up with works better :D the only problem is, they are quite big even for ngeshi-ryu shuriken and there is no way you'll get them to stick in wood. out of interest has anyone ever got the shuriken needles from this site to stick?

Er no. thats how mine snapped. In that case I might send mine back because I am not happy at all with them, certainly not for £40!! The only thing they stick in is plasterboard. But thats not exactly hard is it.

Hell, anything can be thrown like a shuriken if it's of the general shape ^^

Well...nothing silly, like a ninja-to, but you get the idea.

Cool thouh.

how the hell did you manage to snap them? i've slightly bent one of mine and can't find anything strong enough to bend it back. its tougher than a coffin nail.

Well thats the thing, the rest of them are quite strong, but one snapped at the thin part above the handle, and t'other bent in the same place. Throwing it into 1 inch thick wood, bounced off onto wood and then concrete, so I imagine thats what caused it (H) Still, not happy since my other knives are fine. (similar treatment)

if u want a gd shuriken with out alot of hassle getting the screwdrivers handle off try 6 to 9 inch nails simply saw off the head and there u have it a gd solid shuriken ive made quite a few and they work like a charm the worst part tho is fieling the ends not always nessasary but it helps lol

i thought about this a while ago but my favourate(sp?) type of shuriken are ngeshi-ryu which basically require a larger head and a wrap thats why the flat head screwdrive works well

but cheers for the advice :D
