Well, he does. Most likely with TSP Swat Power + 2x Victas V15 extra, if I had to bet money on it...

I think he is using his named blade: VICTAS Koki Niwa

Maybe, yes. Would be interesting to see a close up from the side of his blade from matchplay. Just because the blade he uses has the handle caps of his signature blade doesn't necessarily prove that he actually plays with the "whole thing"...(see FZD, Harimoto and others)

I think he used TSP SWAT until mid 2017.

pictures from 2017WTTC.

From the side we can see the blade is quite thick. Can see the 7ply structure as TSP SWAT.

Australia Open Sep 2017, he switched to this.

and this

Here is a picture from Oct 2017

judging from the thickness and carbon, I think this is the new niwa blade

Hm, ok. My eyes are not the best and the last two pictures are a little "pixely". The Koki Niwa is a 5+4 blade, and I'm just not able to spot any composite layers. But maybe you are right. At least from the pictures we can say that he doesn't play Tenergy or Hurricane...

That's the Swat Power with Niwa handle. There is no composite layer in that blade

This is from the the Team World Cup. Still look like the SWAT Power to me, not the Victas Koki Niwa.

For comparison, this is a side-shot of the Victas Koki Niwa blade:

I heard that he's gone back to new all wood signature blade from his carbon composite signature blade. Thing about Niwa is that he switches blades so often, it's near pointless to try using same blade.

¥15,000 plus tax for an all-wood blade Made in China.

That makes Butterfly a charity.
