    If the natty TK is about to be discontinued then I would say that's my next ken. Can't pass up on something that is about to die.

    I have a birch GT1 and it is waay honed. It's such a soft, clean wood and everything is sick considering it's been less than a week. I've strung it up with a worked-in raw ash.

    Are you talking about the old shape then? The new shape isn't being discontinued right?

    Birch is awesome also if you haven't tried, I really recommend Grain Theory's Raw Ash tama. Real different feel than any natty tama in all the best ways.

    Check out the JKA thread on DS, @maxdesu has some info on what happened. Apparently even though it was a mistake, the JKA decided to axe tk16 as a producer.

    I just got a Grain Theory for Christmas, and I must say the grain of the Tama is insane. I am really enjoying Ash, seeing that its my first. Ive only played maple till now. In your case ide def go birch.
