The Prefect is our newest shape. 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.
Maple is one of our favourite species for kendama-making. Lightly coloured, durable, and amazingly playable, maple wood is a go-to for many top players. The maple stripes in these kens are super curly, they have some great figure!
Koa is a rare and beautiful wood native to the Hawaiian islands. It is a golden brown colour, light in weight, and crisp in feel when playing. It is not common to find koa wood kendamas!
Curly Maple is used for the tama, so this one will look as good as it plays.

'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.
