It is a single veneer, some of my Hinoki veneers have that darker stripe.Is this joint on top ply from two veneers or single one?....
From esthetic side is this what gives the difference between custom and factory build.... Not to mention quality.
Is what you are calling "Super Carbon" the Tamca 5000 carbon?
I say you call that thick outer ply of Hinoki "Super Hinoki".
Tamca 5000 is a 200 g/m2 (or close to that) carbon, which is the same I'm using here. I just call it that because I also use lighter versions. It does sound a little gimmicky, there's nothing super about it, it is what it is, but people are used to this "super" terminology from Butterfly blades.
The Hinoki is indeed super, I don't have many veneers with 1.2mm.
