    Everyone can use this thread to ask/answer questions about pricing of certain kendamas if it helps. Hopefully this becomes a useful tool but idk.

    For Example:

    Hi, a little while ago I had questions on a kaizen exotic wenge's price (completely left alone but whatev) so I want to ask a few questions on pricing.

    1) a probably 9/10 Kaizen Exotic Wenge would sell for how much?
    2) What about an unusually thin (not by that much) tribute ken with a bamboo bushido tama thats about 8/10 for tama and 8.5/10 on the ken

    Thanks!

    1. based off of the current price of a kaizen Wenge is 30, it would probably go for 20$?
    2. again probably like 15-20$

    Im pretty new to this whole thing so don't trust my numbers too hard!

    1) Right now the Kendama USA Wenge is on SALE for $30 but its usually $50. Right now selling it on D.S. I think $25 is good, but once the sale ends, a good price for a 9/10 should be $40.

    2) For the other one, it sounds like an OG tribute because it is skinny, which go for like $50 for collectors NEW, and $40 used, with a tama on it, I think selling it $50 for a collector isn't a bad deal. THIS IS ASSUMING IT IS AN OG TRIB. Maybe its just a defective tribute to be skinny, so then about $20 is good

    **OVERALL** Wenge: $25 on sale or $40 not
    Tribute mashup: $20 normal tribute, or $50 for an OG trib.
    P.S. It might be hard to find out how original the tribute is, so if you aren't sure about if it is OG or not, assume it is NOT.

    thanks! I will try to find out, but the shape is quite different, where the bottom near the base cup goes in then goes up into the Sarado whereas the new ones I have are mainly just a diagonal line. Are there and KUSA people who have Downspike?
