    The handle was made with Amazon Rosewood, Cherry and endgrain Padauk with a Ebony cap. Don't ask me what the tag says because I can't remember . The owner is out there, maybe he can chime in?

    It's not a very fast blade as is, it's gonna be even slower if we removed the I-C. It would probably need more thickness to compensate for that, or a harder medial layer.

    I am looking for a slow blade.Similar to a Stiga Off classic, but with hinoki top.
    What do You think of. (I see You do honoki veneers in 1.0 mm and 0.6 mm) .

    Hinoki 1.0mm / Hinoki 0.6mm / Ayous ??? / Hinoki 0.6 mm / Hinoki 1.0 mm
    Then play with the Ayous thickness to get the proper speed?
    Is this possible?

    Cheers

    Sergio, which do you think would give more feeling: Hinoki 1.0mm as top ply with 0.6mm under it, or the reverse: 0.6mm as top ply with 1.0mm underneath?

    I am just curious what your experience has been making blades.

    I have a similar blade just a few posts above, part of the 5 blades series. That one is Hinoki 0.6 / Hinoki 1.0 / Ayous 3.0. It's not a rocket launcher but it has got some speed, your suggestion would be a bit slower. I also have another one even further back, one with the "dotec" handle, that one is Hinoki 1.0 / Padauk 0.5 / Kiri 3.1, and for me it's more in line with what you are after.

    The medial ply is the one that contributes the most to the type of feedback we get in our hand. Relatively speaking, the second option will feel more solid, bigger sweetspot, less vibration and feedback in the hand. The first option will be the opposite, it may in fact feel too mushy depending on the rest of the composition. Personally I like to use Hinoki in thicker layers with a harder layer underneath to support it, it can be a denser wood of a composite layer.

    Hi everyone, I'm the owner of the last blade posted by Sergio.
    Thanks for the kind comments about the handle design!It took me longer than expected to reach this final design (I made more than 30 different verions of it, small tweaks between than), but the final result was worth it. Thanks again Sergio for the amazong work!
    The handle design is kind of a mix between OSP Virtuoso AC and BTY Fukuhara ZLF.
    I wanted something with kind of simple lines, but not too simple/too "classic", also not too modern/ too fancy. I think the final result was pretty good =D,I see it as an atemporal design

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to test it yet. Not only due to covid situation (almost all places are already running, but I'm still cautious tough), but since a couple months ago other things are going on on my life that requires higher priority than TT. Now I'm not sure when I will be able to play TT again...hopefully next year maybe.

    Looks amazing - as always! I don't see Purple Heart on the list of outer veneers on your website - just out of interest, where does it place in terms of density and hardness?

    It isn't, I have some stuff I need to update but I haven't had time yet. But I do have a note explaining I can get more stuff other than what's on the list.

    Purple Heart is also very heavy, around 905 Kg/m3, so between Wenge and A. Rosewood in terms of density, but same janka as A. Rosewood (11190N).

    Yeah. That blade kind of looks like a work of art that should be put in a frame and hung on a wall. Which would be a shame to keep someone from feeling how nice I am sure it feels to play with.

    One day they will make rubbers that are clear for blades that look as good as that.

    Typical inner fiber blade, but with a small difference. We decided to use thinner outer plies, and a slightly thicker core on this one to improve the speed. This worked as expected, but it actually made it a bit too fast for the owner (we already solved that 🙂). The Flared handle shape is also different than what I usually do, it's a little wider near the wings, which turns it into an almost anatomic shape.

    Composition: Black Limba / Ayous / A-C / Ayous / A-C / Ayous / Black Limba
    Weight: 89.4g
    Thickness: 5.85mm
    Freq.: 1290Hz
    Balance: 2.9cm (Low/Med)

    This is a light and fast blade with a relatively soft feel (considering it's a composite blade). The low balance facilitates the use of the wrist, so it's suitable for playing an aggressive close to the table style. But the main feature of this blade is the semi-anatomic handle, if you don't have different grips for FH and BH and like to keep the hand in a fixed position, this one is just perfect.

    Available FS.

    Composition: Tola / S A-C / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / S A-C / Tola
    Weight: 82.6g
    Thickness: 5.65mm
    Freq.: 1442 Hz
    Balance: 2.3cm (Low)

    No matter what others think, I always think Viscaria and boll alc are the best ping pong blades.

    I can't quite tell from the pic: is the one side of the handle 'straight', or is it slightly 'concave'?

    One of the sides is convex like an anatomic handle, the other is slightly concave like a flared handle. Here, this should help:
