    This took a while even viewing at high speed. I wonder how long it took in real time.

    This rhinestone cat looks a bit like it's sitting on a ceramic ken but I think it's just the way it's painted.

    I almost forgot about this company, until Gloken recently announced a partnership with them, via the Legaxis.
    Saw them display their wonderful craft during KWC, last year.

    Yonemura Mokko (Woodworking) is a company based in the Tottori prefecture, and they make delicate works of art that can be purchased at a pretty decent price, considering the craftsmanship.

    Check this site out, or check the images below:

    Custom engravings on tamas allow you to make it personal :

    Looks like it's the real silk string made by that company that also makes the ropes for kimono but that's just from eyeballing it.

    That's what I was thinking. I'd love to get my hands on some. Maybe I'll get a roll. I'm sure some Americans cans will be interested in trying it out. I'll ask around the Asian community around here if there is something available in my local stores.

    On the site above it works out to about $5 per string. I don't think they sell by the "roll" if they did you'd be looking at some serious coin.

    that would look cool if the pupil was the tama hole, and the green part of the eye provided a 70/30 tracking.
    Just thinking about it, that would be amazing

    LOL I like how this lineup of just beautiful tamas ends with one that just says 'brown'

    Awesome stuff those. The side7studio stuff is always so on point too! I reeeally want one of these so bad, I always miss the releases though :(

    Funny part is that the Kanji characters aren't really what they use for "brown" they used characters that phonetically say brown.

    I was lucky to snag some of the Side7studio items including one of the Ironman looking kendama holders. I hope they release more of those SLS "printed" items in the future. They're really cool.

    One of the best kendama paint jobs i've seen - the Kenholix Grunge Marble.
    I am absolutely stunned as to how this looks, and further stupefied in trying to figure out how this was painted.
