Prefect - Handturned Mahogany & Maple Burl

Competition Ready

The Prefect is designed for modern competitive play, it "fits in the box", so you can use it at any major contest. Hand-turned one at a time in our Vancouver workshop, this is a luxury kendama without rival. 

Mahogany species are well-known and prized for their beauty and rarity. This piece  is very nicely iridescent, and has a good density, making for a solid feeling during play. 
Maple Burl has a wild and random grain pattern, this piece has been dyed green and stabilized using resins. 
Curly Hickory (tama) is a dense wood species that is well known for being very hard and durable. We hand-picked lumber to find the most highly figured pieces possible, the wavy grain on this tama is absolutely stunning.

'Prefect' means 'head of it's class'. We chose this name because we think this is the best dama we've made yet, we hope you'll agree.
