Who is Ben Pycroft? (@piedama)

Last year we had the opportunity to add our first player from the United Kingdom (UK) to the team. It started with a conversation on Facebook and I instantly knew that Ben was the right person for us. Fast forward 6 months later, we successfully released a first batch of his pro model - selling out all 40 units in the first 2 hours (the fastest we've sold anything out ever!)Today, we'd like to share more about the Dad behind the dama - Ben Pycroft.J = Jon, B = BenJ: Tell us how you got started with kendama and the...

Is a GT2 really worth it? (Opinion)

Grain Theory started shortly after I picked up kendama, and has always branded itself as "Small Batch Big Idea". Small batch indeed it was, as I felt the pain camping for drops at 3 in the morning because we're in Singapore.Nevertheless, my friends and I would still pool our funds together and shell out about $140USD (shipping included) just to experience what a GT felt like.

Shipping Sucks - Here's Our Solution

We ship our damas a LONG way - 16,000KM from Singapore to Florida (picked a random place in the US) according to Google. Because of that long distance, shipping fees are usually quite expensive.

We wish that we could do something about it, but we can't - the shipping fee does not go to us.   In 2021 however, we were determined to help our overseas customers get damas to them at a more affordable price. After Wen Chuen and I went back and...

ANALOG KENDAMAS - EMP SQUAB 2020 REVIEW

Note: This article was written by Jon (@jonnyyramone) for Honed Media. I have only one regret about my Analog C TYTY Mod.  I did not glue the spike. Ever since writing my review about the kendama nearly a year ago, it has become one of the staple jammers that I find myself picking up when wanting to sesh. The spike went blunt and I've already sharpened it multiple times. Today, I've been lucky enough to get my hands on an Analog EMP - ET Paint, featuring the Squab 2020 shape. This is their latest shape following Analog C and Squab....
