A pair of "fake twins" with a composition based on a thicker TB Spark, which is basically the same as saying that they are similar to a thinner Moobeam 🙂

Composition: Limba / Kevlar / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / Kevlar / Limba
Weight: 91.7 and 92.0g
Thickness: 6.05mm
Freq.: 1420Hz
Balance: 2.6cm (Low)

Weight: 92.7g
Thickness: 6.0mm

Hmmm, I'm not sure... Iolite is thicker and the top ply seems to be thinner than usual. There must be a 3+2 blade with Spruce outer out there, but nothing is coming to mind.

This blade suffers from an identity crisis. One side Amultart, the other ZJK SZLC, with an handle inspired in the Revoldia and the old TB Forte. Full credit to the owner for the design, I'm just glad I could accomplish his idea 🙂

Composition: Hinoki / ZLC / Kiri / Ayous / SZLC / Koto
Weight: 89g
Thickness: 6.2mm
Freq.: 1570Hz
Balance: 3.1cm (Med)

With this blade, the owner wanted a more tamed version of a TB ALC. The lighter color scheme of the handle also reflects that.

Composition: Koto / ALC / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / ALC / Koto
Weight: 87.8g
Thickness: 5.75mm
Freq.: 1360Hz

One of my latest challenges, the "Dotec" all wood handle. It took a couple of tries, but eventually I found a way of doing this consistently. 

Blade 1 - Limba / Limba / Ayous / Limba / Limba 
90.9g - 5.90mm - 1205Hz - Balance: 2.9cm (Low)

Blade 2 - Hinoki / Padauk / Kiri / Padauk / Hinoki 
86.9g - 6.10mm - 1080Hz - Balance: 1.7cm (Very Low)

It is low for what you can usually see in a Hinoki blade of this type, but it has to do with the proportions of the layers. The blade is "only" 6.1mm, with a thin core and thick outer plies. If I had used thinner outer plies and a thicker core it would've have been stiffer and the frequency higher, but we were really aiming for a All/All+ blade here.

Just put this one on the shop. It was my first attempt at manual engraving, not the most artistic rendition, however the composition is very attractive!

Another pair of fake twins. This time, besides the obvious difference in the handles, there is also a slight twist in the composition as one of the blades has a Limba middle ply and the other one Ayous. It may not seem like much, but it does make an impact in the performance, despite having the same frequency. It's as I always say, frequency doesn't tell the whole story. Also, it proves something I wrote in one of my latest posts (https://www.sdcttblades.com/nerdy-stuff/the-importance-of-the-middle-layer), the middle layer has very little impact on stiffness.

By the way, that Ziricote wood is some heavy stuff, but it sure looks good.

Composition: Framiré / I-C / Limba and Ayous / Kiri
Weight: 90.7 and 91.2g
Thickness: 5.8mm
Freq.: 1356Hz
Balance: 2.1 and 1.8cm (Very low)

This one was a first for me, very challenging but fun experience, and also a learning opportunity. It's not easy working with balsa and cork, but at least I wanted to give it a clean look because I always see these types of blades with such clumsy edges. They also look very boring, with just a Balsa handle, but they don't have to be. It did turn out heavier than intended, and that was the learning part, but the owner was still very happy with it. For some reason I wasn't able to get a clean frequency peak, but it was definitely higher than 2000Hz.

Composition: Framiré / Balsa / Cork / Balsa / Cork / Balsa / Framiré
Weight: 85g
Thickness: 13.2mm
Freq.: ???
Balance: 4.8cm (Very High)

I have some customers who like to experiment as much as I do. That makes it even more fun for me, I can also learn from their feedback, and sometimes I get to make blades that I wouldn't think of. In this case not only the compositions are different, the handles and neck all have small tweaks, trying to improve on previous iterations.

Blade 1 - Mahogany handle
Framiré/ Framiré / S-C / Kiri / S-C / Framiré / Limba - 87.4g - 6.1mm - 1464Hz - Balance: 2.9cm (Low)

​​​​​​​Blade 2 - Black Limba handle
Limba/ S A-C / Ayous / ALC / Framiré - 89.0g - 5.75mm - 1464Hz - Balance: 3.0cm (Med)

Blade 3 - Thermally treated Ash handle
Limba/ ALC / Limba / Kiri / Limba / Kevlar / Framiré - 88.5g - 5.75mm - 1350Hz - Balance: 2.6cm (Low)
