I have received my first custom blade! Haven't played it yet. Happy to share. It made to be displayed!

I was deciding between SP90 or one of those custom ones ... decided to go for custom made first. Oh boy, I love it. Picture worth thousand words, here you go:

Looks really nice. How much did it cost? What is it made of? Is it 1 ply hinoki?  Does the blade maker have a website? Will you play it or just display it?

According to maker it's 500yo kiso. I am in two minds for now whether to play it or not. However it is made to be played. Very solid. Also you can't go wrong with 9mm Kiso, right?

Some people say it worth trying. After that you might be one of those who is then trying to stop using it lol

Real beauty there fmarek. Please do play with it and let us know how it works out.
And for more info, I found this.

https://www.facebook.com/SIAMPINGPONGHANDMADE/

They appear to be quite cheap and affordable. I am quite tempted by their 10mm Jpen. It is a beauty!

Good price for a 1 ply Kiso hinoki although the grain on the left side is somewhat wide. The wood looks more similar to the Miyabi than the DS90. I chatted with the maker some time ago when his prices were much higher and shipping to USA was $31. I found my beloved 77g DS90 shortly after.

I also felt that the grain was a bit wide in some places for a 500-year-old wood plate. But I guess we can account the number for a bit of marketing and sales spiel. Even then, the wood is sure to be a couple of hundred years old since a very young tree would have really wide grain and may also not be able to provide a plate broad enough to manufacture blades.

I still think they are amazing blades and want to buy that Jpen.

I asked a custom blade for him on october.
 
He first said that it would take 5 days to make it. 
Well, after dozens of delays, it passed more than two months for him to finish the blade (that is the one from picture above, he is selling it now. Yes, that one was supposed to be my blade, but the did the handle differently from what I specified, and he said he would make a new one again.

He said he was going to post the new one yesterday, but today when I asked the shipping number the asked my adress (??). But he has my adress since october, when I paid him via paypal...

I hope the keep his word this time. I'm already at the limit of my patience...from 5 days to 83 days...that is A LOT.

Yes you need to be patient with the custom blade makers. Back in last March I was put on a blade maker's wait list for 4 months and I am still waiting...patiently.

The problem is, he told me it would take 5 days to make it...and he would start working on the blade on the same day (he said that right after he received the payment). There wasn't any wait list, supposedly. 

I'm angry because he postponed to make my blade MANY times. But now, since he seems to have completed the blade (I'm still waiting for picture to confirm though...) and is so close to ship it, I will be a bit more patient and wait a bit more. 

Edit: only now I realized that 4 months passed long ago. I can feel your pain. But have you paid him? I would be ok I guess if I still hadn't paid Sittiho, but the problem is that he is with my money since the beginning (october).

Edit 2: he shipped the blade. I'm more relieved now, almost 3 months has passed...now I just have to wait and hope to the blade be the way I specified, since he didn't showed me a picture of the finished blade...but I feel better now Smile

Blade already was made at a time I payed. It was not built to my request. Otherwise I would asked to put some gem stone into the handle and also would go for box case with red lining.

Still happy to grab the first one from Lamun collection

It didn't get that far. I was waiting for his OK and spec discussion before coming to a price agreement, which never came.

AmiciSumus, looks like handle is made of stone or plastic. But I believe it is some kind of wood composite, right? 

How does it play?

Also, I noticed funny categorisation. Yours is marked as Off+, while mine is Off. However mine is a little thicker 9.5mm and 1g heavier. Hm...

The FL handle is some thicker than I am used too.
I did put on Xiom Omega 7 tour and Mizuno Q4 and had a 2 hours training.
One thing I notice is that it is heavy, but good to play with :-)

There are absolutly NO plastic ... If you follow the Link will you see all the pictures of the blade ...
I also have SP90 and I think that is playing better ;-)

That would appear to be the case yes. A lot of businesses have a storefront on FB and nowhere else now. It woks considering one third of the global population is on Facebook.
