Prefect - Curly Hickory

Competition Ready

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. Made in the USA, assembled and quality checked in our Canadian workshop, the Prefect is a premium kendama that will help you push your skills to the next level. 

Hickory 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 these kendamas is absolutely stunning.
Bees Wax finish has been applied to the tamas, to further accentuate the curly figuring. The wax has been buffed into the wood, so it does not have a sticky finish, though if you add more wax you could easily make the tama super grippy.

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

The Terra Prefect comes packaged in a drawstring carrying bag. Kendama comes unstrung, includes string, bearing bead, string tool. Stickers included with every order. Please note that while the majority of tamas have a heavily contrasted split in the woodgrain (as pictured), there are some that do not have this aesthetic in the batch.
