    I'd suggest a large bag, and then smaller individual bags for each kendama. If you search out some cheap muslin bags online you could make that happen for fairly low cost

    Heres some kendama holders that I made and different designs(I prefected it to the way I want. They are super strong and won’t come undone. I can also do it in single colour or multiple colours) . Let me know if people are interested in buying some. They are good and Strong and hold the kendama nice and firm with little to no sway. I find they are better then even some of the company’s holders and look cooler too.

    (1)The dark green/light green/red
    Design 1
    1. Strength-5-Very strong
    2. Sturdiness-5-Holds amazing
    3. Use Ability-4-Easy to use
    (2) The all light green
    Design 2
    1. Strength-5-Very strong
    2. Sturdiness-4-Holds great
    3. Use Ability-3-Moderate to use
    And for easier designs

    (3) The all dark green
    Design 3
    1. Strength-4-Strong
    2. Sturdiness-3-Holds good(just sways a bit but still holds tight)
    3. Use Ability-4-Easy to use
    (4)The red/blue
    Design 4
    1. Strength-3-Good
    2. Sturdiness-2-Holds ok(just sways a bit but still holds tight)
    3. Use Ability-5-Vary easy to use
    I put them in order from best to worse (1best,4worst). They are all good holders some just are just obviously stronger than others and sway less(more cord more strength) but all of them never come undone or get loose.



    If interested msg me on Instagram @ Lucas Canadian kendama. I also make ringdamas and monkyfist begleris all for sale. All the best. Dama on I’m in Canada but can ship.

    @Lucas Canadian Kendama Maybe you could create a DS Exchange thread since people looking to purchase items tend to look on that board.

    Looks like you don't remove the paracord inner fibers. Have you tried doing that to make the cord lay flatter on the kendama?

    That’s cool I never relized I’ll look into that about the exchange(thanks for the heads up).

    No I didn’t try that but mine sits fine and is super strong. I might try one just to see what your talking about. But yeah the ones I make work great and hold it tight and are not bulky on the ball(and the inner cord is 2-3mm dosent take much away. And after removing the inner rope it’s still the same size just flat) and taking out the middle makes it weaker(and becomes unwound near the ends and rip the rope easier) as well as takes always from the frimness on the grip which I think would result in more sway.) but I’ll try one and let you know. it seems like a good consept to take it out and lay it flatter. I’ll let u know.


    I noises it holds it better than some of the other company holders out there((theirs are hard to use and sway a bunch.and I’m not a fan of putting it though a metal stopper like some of the leather ones out there (wear and tear on the hole)). My design 1-2 have Very little to no sway . I’ll post a video on my YouTube Chanel to show how to use them, the strength, and how good they hold. All post a link here when I do.


    Ps thanks for the tips goenkKendama and keep helping others on this form The kendama community is strong. All best a.

    Dama on

    @Lucas Canadian Kendama Here's one I did a while back but it's stitched not braided or knotted I left the core in because of that. On others I pull the core to flatten it against the tama in particular so it doesn't roll off as easy. When it's only 1 strand of cord it's more of a concern than flat braids. Also the black at the top has a metal grommet with a single knotted loop to act as a piviot; it doesn't bind as it's flipping around.



    Also you mention Begleri, you might poke your head in over here for more on the topic.

    @goenKendama nice. And see why unlike it flat for your design. And the top clip on mine has room to move but keep it firm. And for my single strand the knot holds it super tight and never binds just sways a bit but my stronger designs has little to no sway at all. I’ll post a video on YouTube and link it on here. But yeah nice job on yours and seem cool with the metal bead.

    I personally don’t like the learher it looks kinda funnny(bdsm stuff lol) and the hole I fear will open and not hold over time. And the DWI holder is 35$ That’s pretty expensive for just 1 holder(I would sell mine for less than half that). And all the holders are sturdy just depends if it swaying on your hip is a big deal. I like mine steady and not to move much. But yeah putting the kendama around you neck works too Just always good to have a holder for a walk or holing it tight and they look cool. .

    But anyway I’ll post a video on my on my YouTube Chanel so make sure to check it out. I’ll put the link on this page for any one who wants to see how they work, and how well it holds.

    But yeah all the best and dama on.

    @Lucas Canadian Kendama if these are for sale maybe you could create a thread over in DS Exchange to let people know about the styles and prices. That's where you've got the best chance of promoting your items to people looking to B/S/T. :D

    The dama day bag by sweets is pretty awesome if you’re looking to have multiple damas on you and also hold your wallet/keys and extra strings.

    I personally don’t like the panny packs(not chirping just never liked fanny packs in general) but good point the extra pockets for keys and strings is cool. Cool bag just not for me. But all holders are good just depends on what your looking for.

    That’s why I designed my holders they are strong and look awesome. And for my holder you can attach your keys onto the clip to hold them. Check my holders out I will be posting in the DS exchange soon.

    And I just came out with a new product Check my Instagram for more @canadama.kendama

    All the best and dama on.

    @Radson you should just be able to use a clip to clip it on.

    And my holders can clip anywhere and u can clip your keys through the ring also. If you ever get stuck you can unwind it and it’s roughly 20 feet to 10 feet of rope For survival.

    But anyway hope I helped. All the best. And dama on

    Just picked one up from Rose at TKO2019 today. Made from Grey recycled Walmart bags. Works well and fits all size kendamas.. and comes from recycled material so earth friendly :)
