I have mixed feelings about Padauk, it releases a very fine red dust that gets everywhere, but sure is pretty to look at

That's a very nice looking blade! In theory having an inner/outer blade makes much sense.
I really wonder how such blade would play. choice of composition could be something I would choose as well
Please let us know your thoughts after some time playing with it. Really curious. Thanks.
All the EJs felt a slight disturbance in the Force when this blade was made. All I can say is that it looks beautiful and that the handle is maybe the best one I've seen so far. Really nice Sergio, truly a blademaking master.
Very nice! Figuring out a comparable composition with little information to go off of (and without the blade in hand) must have been quite a fun challenge.
Do you know if glass-fiber was commonly used in blades from the 90s? I haven't used many fibers in blade-making, so I have zero practical knowledge for what it plays like.
Are the jointed cores attached using the same glue as between regular plies?
Hypothetically, how would you think a 5 ply with a thick 7-piece jointed core compare with a 7-ply conventional blade of the same total thickness? Which would be harder/more solid?
Wow. These pattern of the handle are wooden poetry. Have seen this with olive. But this is something else?This blade is definitively in the top 5 of the most complex requests I have gotten so far. Combi blades are hard, that's a given, but this time the owner presented a full professional project for the blade and handle design! I had to scratch my head a few times to make this one happen, but in the end it turned out great

thanks for all these interesting information and wonderful work. Your craftsmanship is really impressive. Being a custom Golfclub maker myself, I really learned to appreciate abilities like yours a lot. Keep up the wonderful work. I might have to get in touch with you in the future to discuss an idea, that I have in the back of my mind.
