Cool find at the outing


Recommended Posts

I found this at the outing and Bill was able to identify it.

Its sheet metal thin and about 3/4 inch across.

Anyone know what it is?
You old timers hold back from identifying it ( or just say "I know" )  and let the youngens guess :)

I know.  I know.  I found one out there a few years ago and identified  it on-line.  A relic from an unhealthy habit. Patrick

Pfftt.... aint it obvious, Tom?  That is a Shuriken.  I saw it on Kung Fu a long time ago.   Them Chinese were out prospecting and if you tried to sneak up on them, they'd throw a handful of these in your direction.

Seriously cool find :)  (am I close?)

Looks darn close...but no...there is a square hole in it.  It has to do with something probably 99% of the old prospectors did.  :4chsmu1:
