Topic: Nasty Throwing Cards

Roaming around the net I came across this:

http://www.bladeplay.com/index.php?page=1&cat_id=1&search=card

Any ideas as to what this can be used for (other than a working tool for the International Brotherhood of Gambling Addicted Ninjas)?

I'd mix them with a knife-throwing act... if I was a knife-thrower. Maybe impale the target with a thrown card instead of impaling a card with a thrown dagger... but I'd be hesitant to actually toss them around. I think there's too much hazard involved. I'd hate to try any standard sleights with these- blood dripping from your hands tends to foil attempts at misdirection.

Be aware these may not be legal in many states (they may even be considered shurikens, and thus illegal in the UK as well.)

Ha ha! I can just picture it!

Maybe it can be used for a self-cutting deck... :)

I am sincerely sorry for this, but I lack the self control to resist such a perfect setup.

They make great heckler-stoppers!

Yay! Wait... what if hecklers are kind of like the Hydra? Cut one off and two more take its place?
