Each Craft Kendama comes competition ready, strung with a KUSA bearing, inside our new custom Craft Kendama bag, and includes stickers.
Disclaimer: The Craft Kendama is designed for experienced players who are familiar with the risks of Kendama play and understand the consequences of strong impacts and drops, especially along the cup rims. We highly recommend playing over soft surfaces to avoid damage to your Kendama.
If chipping is a big concern for you, we would recommend our Classic and Tribute Kendamas which have shapes better suited to resist chipping.
I really enjoy playing with this yellow birch natty. The craftsmanship is excellent and the sound this wood type makes is very pleasant and on the softer side. The wood grain is not that "grippy" and I find stalls very difficult for that reason... but doing stalls on this kendama is not a big deal. It is overall a lovely looking kendama pleasure to play with!
I'm rating 5 outta beauty finely crafted piece
The best and greatest ken in the game right now without a warp hole. Stays true to the traditional ken shape, and the slim helps with lunar balance and slingers. Honestly can’t beat it
This thing slays! Super good right off the bat and only gets better
Five stars for effort, but the Tama and the kendama are very rough. Like they were not finished properly.
Craft Kendamas are hand finished. The tama is finished to make them safe but we keep the coarseness of the natural grain to help with play. If you do not like the feel of Hickory perhaps maple is a better choice for you. Simply contact support to make the hassle-free switch as long as it isn't played.
