Getting water on your ken?
« on: 20 October, 2013, 18:27:37 »
I just got a brand new ozora yesterday and I seemed to get a small splash of water on the ken. It stayed there. I thought It would dry by today but nope still a dark spot. Does anyone know how to get rid of it? And will it rot the ken?

I've got plenty of kendamas wet, but they all just dried again fine. Perhaps your "water" had some contaminant in it.

It is unlikely to rot the ken, I'd say. (Trees usually survive rain just fine)

In terms of removing the spot... It really depends on exactly what the splash was. If it was only water, i would expect it to dry out, even if not immediately. If it was something else... Maybe the old "spilt wine" trick of putting a pile of salt or sugar on the spill will draw out the impurity.

Final word: don't worry about it too much!

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!
