Craft Kendama Nova Shape Explained

 

HAND CRAFTED BY KENDAMA PLAYERS

No regular wood factory can truly understand how the features of a Kendama shape affects how it plays. The solution? Build a workshop here in the USA that is run entirely by Kendama players. Every single Craft product has been  designed, manufactured, and hand finished by a highly skilled Kendama player who understands and cares about the products they are creating.

 

Craft Kendama Nova vs Shift

A NEW SHAPE AND SIZE FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE

We spent over a year re-designing our Shift & Slim shapes with dozens of prototypes and input from the entire Kendama USA team. After numerous rounds of prototypes we’ve created a unique shape and size that every player will love. Our crew meticulously went over every last detail and measurement to make sure every Craft that goes out the door is perfect.


Craft Kendama Nova Base Cup

THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL

The Nova shape has been sculpted with performance and balance in mind. The ken is thicker at the base and features a slightly more aggressive taper giving the spike a sleeker profile. We tested several sarado options as well to ensure the shape is still honed for slingers while keeping optimum lunar balance. All the cups have been boosted in size making catching & flowing easier. The rim arches and other stall points such as the handle stall and slip ring have also been refined to help your tricks lock in easier. It also gives you a firm placement on the grip that’ll give you more confidence when doing tricks that require you to catch & release such as juggles, moon circles, etc.. The base cup has been blown out and features a new type of base cup & bevel. Our Classic dual burn lines assist in tracking while giving the Craft a clean aesthetic. The Nova is something we are truly proud of and we can’t wait for you to play it.
