They are black in color and each is sold separately. These are not some cheapo Chinese knock off that won't even annoy a squirrel. The size and weight make for an extremely dangerous and accurate throwing weapon. (Check your local state laws before ordering as some states have an irrational fear of ninja, it is your obligation as the buyer to ascertain if you can legally own one (or more) of these) These come sharp, use caution.
