Kunai

Design & Diagrams by Gerwin Sturm (2006/11/25)
1. Fold and unfold
the diagonal.
2. Fold and unfold
in half both ways.
For all those Narutards and all others who want to play Ninja,
here’s the model for you.
I would recommend a 15 cm square of silver Japanese foil for this
model, which will give a realistic looking Kunai about 15 cm long.
Unfortunately this model won’t fly very well when thrown.

the crease as shown.
