Wood Options:


Birch offers players both flexibility and hardness without added weight. Yellow birch is a very resilient and durable species and is more forgiving with high-speed impacts, and risky contacts.

White Ash

Ashwood is strikingly beautiful and the spaced and porous growth rings will provide you with a prime & coarse surface to help those tricks come to a halt. Ash wood is also durable and lightweight with grippy feels and textures that you will love during catches.


Maple wood will give you the stiffest feel during play and is the most resistant to scratches and dents. Hard Maple is the strongest of the maple species and its closed grain structure gives the ken a smooth feel and crisp sounding contacts.

Best usability

This kendama is wonderful. The balance of the Luna is just right. The gun slinger is also easy to turn. The best kendama.

Fantastic and fun ken shape

This is the third Nova craft ken I have purchased. I loved the feel and sound of the birch and the ash so I just had to save my pennies and get a maple Nova. The Nova is a well balanced ken for lunars and lighthouses. Jumping sticks area a ton of fun with this ken. The Nova is a good size: not too small, hefty without being bulky. The maple feels solid and looks lovely. I'm really enjoying playing with this shape!
