Use for worn cassette?

I considered breaking it apart and using it as ninja throwing stars.

Are there other suggestions?

Disc brake rotors make the best ninja stars. Just cut the ring of the spokes and spladah! An 8" disc makes the best throwing star.

Or you could get a disc that already has points.
