I ordered one of the A- Walnut Squabs from Analog just after Christmas and got it in the mail today. Overall, it's an awesome kendama with an awesome shape and great paint. For reference, check these particular batch out here. On their site they said this about this batch: "About half of these walnut tamas have light streaks under the paint (from the sanding process) that are visible in direct light, and we felt like we couldn’t quite call these A grade, or B-grade." When I got mine, however, it looks like the tama is actually glue together which is very different than just an issue with the sanding. I'll attach pics so you can see what I mean. Interestingly, they did include a second Squab tama with the order which is super cool of them. That said, it didn't come with a note of any kind and the issue with the original tama is definitely different than what they mentioned online. How does this sit with y'all? I'm actually kind of stoked since I got the dama on a discount and they included a different tama for free. That said, I could see being bummed out that it isn't a one-piece tama. Is it a normal thing to have glued tamas like this? I don't think I've seen it before except in like spectraply tamas.
