Kendama USA has dipped into Reserve No. 7 to bring you this fine vintage Wine Kendama that is aged to perfection. To ensure a great weight balance, we have paired a birch wood ken with this sassafrass wood tama. It’s perfect for a player who wants a lighter weight than our standard beech Kendamas. Using top shelf ingredients, our new semi-gloss translucent paint plays amazing and lets the beauty of the woodgrain shine through. Please enjoy responsibly.

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.
