This website is based in California. Because Sure Strikes™ are illegal for sale in California, we are offering them for sale from our Arizona office. Orders for other items on this website must be processed out of our California office. Shipping charges, sales tax and other charges, incurred on this site are not transferable to items purchased from our Arizona office. In simpler terms, consider an order for a Sure Strike as an order placed at another, entirely separate, company.


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.
