Shibui in Japanese translates to simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. Our goal with this line of kendamas is to provide players around the world with an opportunity to play a fully Japanese made kendama with good tracking, new durable sticky paint, and great sound. The colors were inspired by traditional Japanese art.
The new paint on these kendamas are sticky to the touch and have good grip, but not too much, so you can still easily adjust tricks like lighthouse and lunar. With normal play, the paint doesn’t peel or chip, it dents into the tama breaking it in perfectly for balance tricks.
This shape is 1UP inspired, but has a few slight modifications. We are calling this shape produced at Legaxis the LEG-UP shape. The spike is a little longer, the cup edges are less harsh, but more sharp, and all stall points are more defined.
