Furniture, boat decks, guitar bodies. There are tons of things you can build with mahogany but if there is one characteristic common to them all, it's high quality. Thanks to its straight and even grain, its durability, and the fact that it's easy to work with, mahogany is the wood of choice for top-quality items. So when you hear that there is a kendama made of it, the Ozora Mahogany Kendama, you know that this isn't the regular kendama children play with in the neighborhoods of Tokyo!
Starting from the mahogany itself and moving on to its maker, Japan's top kendama manufacturer Yamagata Koubou, the Ozora Mahogany Kendama is a splendid example of craftsmanship that can be even used as a decoration piece. At the same time, it is specially recommended by the Japan Kendama Association, so if you are thinking of actually qualifying for a kyu or semi-shodan grade, you can use it for the official test as well: it's guaranteed to help you showcase your skills in the best possible way!
