Is there a huge HUGE difference to the performance of 1 Ply, 10.5mm Hinokis that cost 100$ vs 5000000 $??? I mean 1 ply hinoki is 1 ply hinoki.

Unless the 100000000000$ version is carved out of Jesus Christ's cross how different can they really be?

Older age(bigger) trees have more annual rings and therefore the blade blank can be cut near the center of the tree. Thus a tighter grain pattern and better workmanship.
This Miyabi blade is from a younger Hinoki tree and costs $100.


This is from an older Kiso Hinoki tree Darker Speed 90 costs $250. You make the comparison.

Thank you for the detailed comparison. I'm gonna go ahead and assume the younger, less tighter grains give slightly more flex and the tighter grains hit through better? Is this correct?

Oooh, this is really good!  A thread titled "deleted" is always going to attract attention.  And it's impossible to go off topic!

Here's what I think:  Butterfly 1 ply hinoki blades are not actually made from hinoki.  Because Butterfly's primary raison d'etre is to extract as much money as possible from suckers, they actually substitute a much inferior material.  According to a friend of mine whose wife's sister's boyfriend works at Butterfly HQ, their hinoki blades are actually non-wood.  Out the back, they have a huge insectorium where they breed butterflies.  When the insects die, their bodies are ground up and then chemically treated and compressed into a hard substance.  Multiple layers of this are forced together to give the striped appearance of hinoki.  Butterfly 1 ply hinoki blades should actually be called Butterfly multiply Butterfly.
