Ok, I've submitted a couple reviews and for some reason, they never stay put, so this is my last attempt. The pouch is a bit too small for the 6-pointed star, which scratched my hand because one of the tips pokes through the edge of the pouch. Because of this, I just left pouch in the box since it has a hole where the shuriken pokes through. The 4 pointed squarish shurken is quite a bit smaller and thicker than the others. It's not sharpened very well so it's always more difficult to make it stick compared to the others, which are thinner and have more steeply angled points. At 5 - 8 feet, it's quite a struggle to throw the small one hard enough to stick without a wild pitch putting a hole in a wall. I recommend standing 10 - 15 feet back to allow enough acceleration and momentum to build, and it will be much easier to sufficiently pierce your targets. They're really fun to throw and shuriken flying through the air and making a snapping sound as they sink into corrugated cardboard is always satisfying. I really want some larger stars, though, b/c I'm afraid if I throw one of these outside where my walls will be safe, I may lose one in the grass. Because they're so much fun, and bring back childhood memories, I won't deduct a star for the very small, not well sharpened square shuriken, and the pouch that's too small for the 6-pointed one.
True Swords FAN with an honest review of these items. These pieces look really nice! If you are expecting big and impressive shuriken for this price, you will be disappointed. They are more like either display pieces or for practice at honing your throwing technique. Small in size but really sharp tips make it easy to handle these and make precise strikes. They stick flawlessly in my modified dart board (metal rings removed) and in drywall as well (yeah, I miss every once in a while). I wouldn't suggest dropping them onto concrete though as the tips would probably bend fairly easily. I would like to see TS pick up a line of good high quality shuriken of the more classic variety. I think I will be trying out the "Cold Steel" ones they have soon as I believe those are larger in size and closer to what I would consider a true battle ready shuriken. Overall god buy for the price and purpose!
