Rowyn’s Kendama – WYN Shape
This kendama shape was specifically designed to match the geometry of the bevel on the tama providing the ultimate amount of surface contact giving you the most confident feeling stalls! Check out the photos in the product listing to see how the ken perfectly fits the tama!
Serado wood types from top to bottom Canary, Purpleheart wood and Padauk. Spike is Purpleheart and Padauk
When I was thinking about this design I was noticing that most kendama have a flat surface around the cup of the serado and I saw that when the tama rested on it there was only contact are the very edges of the serado. I thought it would be cool if I could make a curved surface that would fully contact the shape of the bevel on the tama. I slowly turned the shape to perfectly match it and gave it a play. I was immediately impresses with how much grip I got when I landed stalls and knew I had to make more of these for others to experience. I asked the kendama community for name ideas, I gathered up the name ideas and held a vote. The WYN shape was the winner so that’s what I went with.
