    SDC Handmade Blades

    I order some materials but they haven't arrived yet, so i had to use some stuff from another projects. These were mainly experiments but didn't turn out too bad, in fact the second one managed to overthrow the DHS301.

    I weight all the materials and calculate the density so i can calibrate the models used in FEA.

    Blade 1 was just to experiment with the routing and gluing process, so i used a 3 piece of ply and glued the face veneers. It's 5 ply, 5.2 mm thick and weighs 90.5 g with no weight relief and sealed with acrylic wax. Plays like an ALL blade, very similar to the Allround Classic from what i remember. It actually got the second set of handles i made (Pine) which came out much better than the first set, after making a router jig to ease the process.

    Blade 2 has an unusual composition. Mahogany 0.6/Mahogany 2.0/Balsa 1.0/Mahogany 2.0/Mahogany 0.6 . The 2.0mm mahogany is very dry so it weighs less, around 0,5 g/cm3. So, 5 ply, 6.2mm thick and 87.5g with weight relief, after sealing. Plays like an Off-, very good control and moderate speed, just the right amount of "feeling" with a little flex.
