    I also use the sweets holster. It's very simple and effective. Easy on easy off, easy in easy out!
    @Ting.Kut if you use this, the rub on the jeans will also make you ken blue. But only on one side. After jamming it rubs away. Not the worst thing in the world. Consider it a tracking method when flipping the ken around.

    Same. A nice big pocket always works

    I use my tamahawk holster from sweets for one I plan on primarily jamming/using if I go anywhere (jam sesh, event, etc).
    I'll have others I take with me in separate dama bags in my backpack, but I am super lazy when it comes to putting them back into a dama bag at the end of whatever I'm at (usually kendama club)

    I have a sloth leather holster from 2014 I believe. Thing still holds up well and I love wearing a dama on my hip. I don't care what people say, all the cool kids were doing in 2014.

    DWI ken tsuna is my main jam, I have a 1st batch black leather, and a suede one that I've been rocking lately.

    The tamahawk holsters are really rad too, I have a couple that have lived on my backpack extensively.

    KNT holsters are rad too, I like how they hold the dama on tight... no flopping around on your hip!

    I use a Sweets leather holster for my daily - I have been using the same holster for about a year or so and its held up really well! The only downside with the leather holsters is the cheaper clasp - hasn't been a terrible issue for me yet, but I can definitely tell it's wearing down and getting weaker.

    If I ever get a replacement, it'll be a tamahawk probably. They look cool and seem like they'd hold damas well. Other than that, I have many dama drawstring bags for my spares - I just toss the rest of my extras for an event into those and into my bag.

    I used to rock a tsuna but now I just chuck it in my pocket or my backpack if I have one

    I don't think I'd trust a toothpick to hold my fav dama longterm, but bravo on the creativity in that one! Very cool

    Cost of the toothpick was probably a bit more budget friendly than the Mugen holster though I'd agree about trust. . .I'd probably splurge and upgrade the toothpick to a ten-penny nail.

    So I was thinking about this for a while but finally dug the tennis ball out of the closet to give it a try. Coated the inside of the ball with rubber cement to keep it from deteriorating and keep the tama from slipping. Then used a cordlock to hold the paracord tight. Not much else to it.
