Blacksmiths Recreate Xena's Impossibly Dangerous Death Boomerang

Lets clear up a couple of things: Yes, I know they’re called chakram, and that they’re real weapons that come from India. I also know they don’t fly back to you when thrown, or separate into weird knives.

Xena gets a pass because she’s superhuman and all that, but the guys of Man at Arms seemed to really struggle when trying to use these. By all indications they’re difficult to throw and really easy to slice open your hand with. Maybe in the reboot, Xena can wear some protective gloves or something.
