Evo Kendamas Custom Review - You Should Get One

Do yourself a favourGet an Evo KendamaIt's been awhile since I've done a kendama review. Due to commitments at work and at home, my involvement at Honed Media has winded down quite some.Don't get me wrong, I still love doing it - its just that the time it takes to test a dama and ideate how to frame my review is something I cannot afford today. Between my day job and running Cereal Kendama it's just a luxury I don't have.That being said, when I spoke to Kyle of Evo Kendamas and we decided to do an exchange of product,...

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.

Considerably more expensive than the average kendama, albeit made in...

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. Even with our special DHL partnership, 2 damas will cost about $20 to ship to the US. 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...
