    In honor of this beloved moderator reaching 5,000 DS Hype, we are giving away one of his pro mods from Kendama USA! All you have to do is post a photo of your most thrashed kendama for a chance at a freshie!

    Remember, "Destroy all damas" is a philosophy that means that damas are there to be played, enjoyed, and used. Not disrespected or trashed on purpose. Show us those OG slayers and the ones your dog got to, but don't go out breaking 'damas on purpose!

    Definitely my most trashed kendama. Sweets Stained (teal & purp) and a completely destroyed Dave Mateo Mod Tama

    The wood on the mateo is so light and chips hella easy so that's why it looks like this haha
    it's also my yankmachine now

    here we have the remains of a casper half-split tama on a TJ mod ken. The ken isn't too bad, just a base cup chip, but the tama only remains small specs of white. Also, my most thrashed ken is down there, with a nasty base cup chip, flat spike and really bad cup edges.

    None of my kendamas ever get too thrashed because I give my most honed kens away. I break in a dama and then at its peak it leaves my world and migrates to the hand of another.

    CE44C7FA-1949-4DC5-8A77-E012A1637540.jpeg First kendama. Tk16 mutant variety.

    Made a new spike tip for it, and the black mark on the tama is a knot in the wood.

    Served me well.

    I concur. Since that TK I've bought too many damas and not seshed them enough. I got four kendamas between 25th December and my birthday at the end of January and I am going to try damn hard to not buy anymore this year and shred my current collection only!

    Wish me luck :eek:
