The DealWithIt x OhYesYo V4 has been a long time coming Matt and I chatted about it on off since the beginning of the pandemic but I was sooo unsure of what direction I wanted to go in moving forward. My art style had been shifting and I had so many massive life changes coming at me all at once. So it took a back seat for a while and two years later I figured it out one day, the V4 is a full circle of design for me in the previous iterations I always used a grey and purple motif and we stuck with that. The wood selection is based on the DWI x Oyy V1 which was all Ash wood one of my favorites simply for the grain and how it ages when you shred it, and the V3 which was Purpleheart a kendama favorite of us all I'd imagine but overall just a gorgeous exotic wood. The wolf on the tama is too represent my son Grey Ba'cho (Ba'cho being the apache word for wolf) so that sort of ties together the Grey/Purple motif. The engravings around the ken are little trees for the woods, a nice moon on the big cup and the words on the bird zones read "the best protector of sheep is the the wolf" I hope you all appreciate the story and thought behind this and I appreciate the endless support of DWI and all of you.
Comes with kendama, extra string, DWI bag and stickers.
