Q: Just wondering if the tama is left slightly unfinished on the Birch as it is on the Ash? The Ash slays but my concern is durability and I feel the Birch would last longer but perhaps might not be as grippy on the tama. Please let me know if the tama remains slightly unfinished on the Birch as well for increased grip!
A: Most species including birch do require light sanding during our finishing process. The birch is minimally sanded by hand to maintain the maximum amount of natural grip.
