The Tribute represents a premium quality Kendama, combining an unmatched combination of design and playing performance. These high quality Kendamas use only the best beech wood which is FSC certified, to ensure sustainable forestry practices. We have improved the handle assembly to create the strongest Ken ever made. The Tribute can be re-strung between right and left handed play simply and easily without taking the handle apart. Weve taken our favorite color combos and combined them into these fresh new Half-Split tamas. The popular silk paint has been brought back and spiced up! Flatter than the originals, the matte Silks have great tackiness while allowing just enough room for small adjustments during balance tricks. The Silk style paint is a player favorite! Every Tribute Kendama comes in professional packaging, and includes an instruction manual, free stickers, plus a replacement string and bead pack in the box.
