New JKA kendama coming in August.
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!

Interesting, I'd like to get one to try them out. I assume most european shops will stock them.

Whats going on with the JKA?

So we now have two new JKA kendamas. This one "Stars Kendama" and also the "Meijin kendama" with blue seal! Also it says the Stars kendama will be released in August which is when I will be in Tokyo, so I will definitely try and hunt one down.

As an aside note has anyone seen the new Ozora seal with hologram type background? http://www.kendama.co.jp/index.html Apparently it is to combat counterfeit seals/kendamas appearing on the market!

I have a 40th Anniversary one of these. Regrettably, our post service banged it up pretty good, so I can't really speak to it's playability. However, I has one of the most satisfying clack sounds out of my collection.

Now I feel like trying it out again...

:( Did you ever get some compensation from the post office for that?

The 40th anniversary GT16 was made by Gentosha. I don't know if it's exactly the same as the Stars or not.

Thanks! I haven't played it, I was keeping it as collection piece, maybe I should :-)
