The two-piece throwing star was folded and photographed by John Paulsen.
The complete folding diagrams are now available.

For purists like myself, I've created a one-piece version of the shuriken. This model has a high-intermediate difficulty. The result has twice the area of the two-piece version, with decent aerodynamics. It can be curved into a pretty (but useless) 3-d airfoil. If you want a compact, hefty model, try blintz folding before the first step.
