Keizen Kendama Padauk - Silk - Grape

Kendama USA

  • Description
  • This grape colored Kendama is made of padauk wood; a rich orange wood that turns progressively darker as you play and infuse your essence into it. We have paired this Kaizen shaped ken with a silk painted Tama to maximize the grip and playability. Take a trip to the vineyard with this gratifying Grape!


    Traditional Assembly
    Dense Padauk Wood
    Updated Ken Shape
    Widened Tama Bevel
    Refined Silk Paint
    Diminished Spike Settling

  • Please note that while padauk is a beautiful wood, it does contain oils that can stain other woods, clothing, or a players hand with extended use. Please be sure not to store your padauk on top of other kens or clothing for extended periods of time. The staining of the tama during storage and play is common and should be expected.
  • Keizen is the Japanese philosophy of constant improvement. Kendama USA has applied this concept to their production process, aiming to improve every product that they put their name on. Each part of the Kaizen Kendama has been meticulously thought out by the Kendama USA team, making enhancements with the future of Kendama play in mind. The result is an affordable, premium Kendama specially crafted for the serious enthusiast.

  • The Kaizen Kendama features a 3 piece construction with traditional Japanese style handle assembly. The shape of the Ken has been updated for precision balance, and the tama bevel has been widened for enhanced play.  The starting spike length has been intentionally set shorter out of the box. This allows the sarado to settle over time, eventually bringing the spike into an ideal length after a few sessions without going past the "point of no return."

  • Notable features include:
    Durable, low friction, beveled handle design
    The Ken is thicker towards middle, improving balance and weight distribution for technical tricks
    Can be easily re-strung without taking the handle apart to accommodate left and right-handed players
    String features high-quality weave with greater flex and strength
    Contemporary sarado (crosspiece) design does not separate from Ken as in traditional designs

    Each Kendama arrives in pro packaging with an instruction manual, free stickers, and a replacement string/bead packed in. You'll get as many hours of quality play from The Keizen as went into making it a timeless experience worthy of the professional player.
