Might be a misguided question, but Why get a Grain theory, or a Craft, or a Homegrown, when you could instead get a 20$ natty maple no name Kendama that should last just as long. What is the draw point for kendamas that cost this much. Ive dropped hours onto a Krom quad split, and a sweets Penniman/homegrown tama, so i don't have the most experience with natty's. A lot of companies selling point is the paint and the shape. With all natural kendamas, it comes down to the shape and the wood. So i would love some perspectives on why would i should grab some of these high end natural kendamas. What makes the shape so good compared to cheaper kens? What makes these woods better than others? Why drop 100$ when i could instead drop 20$?
