    What are those kendamas that you can't give away or sell?

    I'm assuming everyone has those kendamas that they can't bear to part for any reason, so what kendama is it and why?

    Personally, I have two:
    -A red Ozora: My first kendama
    -Philken Primera Beech Natty: Signed by both members of Zoomadanke

    Most of my kendamas hold sentimental value. Pick a kendama off my wall and there’s a good chance it’s one that I carried around with me everywhere I went for a period of time. Then to go back and play it brings me back. It would be easier to list the ones I could sell or give away lol
    But for the sake of the thread,
    A meteor red Mugen Musou because Mugen Musou
    And a birch LBB that my wife got me as a gift

    3 Damas;
    My first ever= it's an off brand crappy thing.
    My first real dama= Reed Stark
    My krom b-day, I bought it for and jammed minutes after my sonswas born. It's definitely my favorite and most sentimental.

    -My first ever kendama which was a Light Blue Yomega solid
    -My pro clear damas. Pro clear is my favorite paint, so I can't pass it up.
    -Any of my GT-1s. GT-1s are the one thing that I plan to keep until the very end.
    -Pro/Legend mods. I gotta keep them as a memory of the past, especially my Alex Ruisch 2014 Legend Model. It was my first and last purchase from HNL Kendama before their walk-in store closed forever.
    -Finally, maybe any Mugens that I pick up in the future.

    Damn near all of them are keepers (managed to get the current collection down to about 58, not including spare kens and tamas)
    Only ones I really am willing to sell are a couple Sweets Prime setups and a couple blank natties I’m planning on custom burning.

    I guess, but at some point, kendamas are just meant to be given away for free. Very old and beat ones, especially.

    My blue skateply hand turned by rod named squirtle because I love the skateply because it’s a tank. My gt Hongboots prospect because he was the first person I had ever seen play a kendama in the gt vs jpn 2 edit and the color way is just so sick. My maple stodd with a lyndon Whalen tama on it, by far my favorite setup I’ve put together. Finally a full maple kaizen 2.0 that I did my first ever wood burn on to see where I started from and to see my wood burns now.
