      NBlades

      Hi!

      I’m a french player and I started to build blades during the confinement for myself and others. I have a detailed post over at "Forum tennis-de-table.com" named "Fabrication de bois made in Marseille" but I will post some pictures here.

      Now I’m stuying real estate to have a plan B.
      Then I will study carpentry for 1 year and create a table tennis brand. I hope my dream will come true. I thought to make blade series like Osp, Artte... with an option to custom them.

      7-ply: black limba/limba/alc/Kiri/alc/limba/black limba

      1st 6-ply combi: black limba/limba/alc/ayous/limba/black limba

      5-ply I thought that was an all+ but it’s more an off blade. black limba/limba/ayous/limba/black limba


      2nd 6-ply: planchonello/limba/balsa/fiberglass/ayous/limba

      Here are the first blade I made and my current blade.

      Black limba/okoumé/poplar/okoumé/black limba.
      Similar to a Donic defplay. I’m not a defensive player but I had no other veneers.

      My own blade: black limba/limba/ayous/limba/black limba. Similar to an Osp expert but quite lighter (75g).

      I love the pattern of the veneers. I also like your engravement which looks artistic and professional!!

      I like the natural wood designs. The black limba is pretty!

      Thank you. I like it too. I really like black limba, it is very aesthetic but also qualitative!

      Don’t hesitate to give your opinion on my project, my blades...to ask me something...
      Even if you don’t like something.
      It will help me to improve both my English and blades making skills.

      Do you seal your outer plies?

      For this blade I wanted to try the engraving on the handle but I’m not satisfied. I used the logo I prepared for the outer ply but with different dimensions but the result is not good. Instead, I will put a small plate at the end of the handle and an engraving on the outer ply

      Wow.. I see you offer services to change the handles and repairs!!

      Does this include other regions or only limited to Europe?

      I can do it but for other regions than Europe it will be not profitable for you. The shipping costs will be higher than the repair or changing handle. For other regions, I think it’s better to order a blade.

      To change the handle it’s around 15/20€ and changing the veneers around 25€. So approximately 40/45€ + 25€ shipping costs (70€). Depending on the blade it will be difficult or impossible to make an other handle for example, you want to have a bigger handle it will be impossible.

      This is good to know.

      Cause sometimes rather than getting a whole new blade, it might just need a partial repair or handle change for the blade to be use again.

      Sometimes from a sentimental perspective but also keeping from EJ.

      Cheers!!

      Also, you need to know that handle changing could modify the characteristics of the blade.

      How about a small coin-size lens in the handle maybe about 1cm diameter. It's just personal preference. I am not used to blades having no lens on one side of the handle. A metal logo will work on the side too.

      At the moment it’s impossible because I don’t have the machine to do this. I’m not very well equipped
      Also with the studies it will be difficult for me to go to a shared workshop.

      But it’s a good idea thank you!
