Late new arrival. Got this back from Taiwan. Rosefinch Sifang kendama. The paint is amazing in real life.

For those of you interested in wood, I took some samples of European species wood to a local guy we knew had a collection. He arranged for a colleague of his to give me some samples back. This is a piece of Calocedrus formosana or Taiwan incense cedar. Probably driftwood since they try to work with it more than having to cut down trees. Heavier than water and with a strong camphor smell.

I would love to see a kendama made from this type of wood.

Spotted this on a shelf. Picked it up in Japan in September. Sunrise Titan tama. Limited production run. Wondering what to do with it.

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!

So, to connect to my previous tweet, time to do some weighing and matching with these kens I just got through from kendama.cz . (I liked Mirek's turning video so much, I wanted to support him, and these Trojka b-kens were so cheap, it was impossible not to!) Thanks very much, @Mirek , and keep doing what you do! (No "3" sticker because they are b-grades?)

Big thanks for the support. You are right there no 3 sticker on the ken because it's B. These kens are leftovers from Trojka oak kendamas (http://kendama.cz/kendama-shop/trojka-oak-kendama-rh/).

@PikWik Sorely tempted by your lunar balanced maple Ken only. Very reasonable even with shipping. But as I mentioned in another thread "the wife"  ::)
