    Perhaps I'm going to sound very arrogant, but I'm looking at this from a different perspective, so I have to call it like I see it. I don't see any special skill or craftsmanship, in fact I find the...

    No problem, now the information is out there, in case anyone is interested.

    Regarding the maximum allowed reinforcement percentage, it only concerns the actual blade, not the handles. Like Magic_M...

    You are judging my ability with your sample of one blade. I never claimed the ALC was too thin, ALC is always the same thickness, I don't even now where you are getting that. On your blade I didn't...

    I told myself I would give up, but a lot of people read the threads and I would really like to stop perpetuating myths (at the risk of sounding like another forum member 😅). You keep on insisting on...

    Yes, the weight of the blade affects its performance and feeling. However, people assume a heavier blade will be faster, which is not necessarily true.

    How dare you?! Exposing facts and numbers instead of personal observations. Blasphemy!

    That's not exactly true, every fiber has its own intrinsic properties like density, thickness, stiffness, hardness, feel, that will stand out if everything else is equal. What is wrong is to compare...

    What you failed to realize was that I was talking about this specific case, and how this top layer reacted to being exposed to water, the sealer is irrelevant.

    Congrats on your 8 or 9 blades, I...

    It's called raising the grain and it's a common wood working practice, not just in blade building. If this were done before, he could have applied any kind of finishing without any problems. The...

    There is nothing wrong with Acrylic lacquers, they are safer for the environment, dry clear, fast and hard, and can be applied very thinly. You just need to know what you are dealing with. Because...

    Good on you for not taking what I say for granted. I'm also skeptical like that, that's why I try to find my own answers, you should be prepared to do the same.

    Completely true, but notice how I didn't mentioned anything about how they play. There are plenty of good and cheap blades out there, and a high price tag does not make a blade necessarily good.

    Butterfly's ZLC has the same weave pattern as that one, the zylon is horizontal and the carbon is vertical. Butterfly's ALC is sort of a 1:1, but there is almost no Arylate in the vertical direction...

    They both have what is called a plain weave pattern, but the "zlc" has a ratio of 1:0, which means there is only one fiber in each direction and the ALC has a ratio of 1:1, with both fibers in both...

    I get what you are saying, but it's not all about the similarity of the woods, ply thickness and arrangement matters as well. There are plenty of "mono" wood blades out there that still feel hollow.
