Thanks, @AlexSmith , good to know. There you go, then, @Peat , looks like you've got yourself something a little special!
If you don't want to BUY MY BOOKS 😉, then why not ask your local library to order them in, and read them for free? That would help too. Cheers!

Today, in a workshop, the UCD had same extra Kendamas to spare. Most were non competition models, but two were interesting. First one was a no -sticker junior size, and the other had a gold seal.

So I'm assuming it was a sakura. Interesting enough, the tama was quite beaten up but the sarado was quite high and the spike reasonably sharp, so I'm assuming the wood was quite hard.

I was tempted to offer to trade it but at the end I did not.

Could have been a Fuji. (See first page of this thread.)
