Hello, everybody!

Just have bought a blade with old Sriver rubbers, previous owner did't know anything about blade.

It has 2 holes for a blade sign on both sides, one has a sign "Made in Japan" (looks really like paper) and another one is empty. Both are same size, like old BTY blades had (long and thin). It has also 2 carbon layers. May be someone know anything about this blade?

Thank you in advance!

Carbon looks like Tamca 5000. Maybe one of the older blades with that.

Oh, yes. Thank you for suggestion, it looks very similar to Tamca (hanle disign like Gergely), thick as Shlager - but this one has 7 layers (last one is very thin). And two elongated glasses on both sides of handle. This is unfamiliar for me. Just guess - probably in was kind of custom made version?

Looks like an older model of a Gergely. The Scorna was Tamca 5000 with a brown grip as well, although the grip was not as thick IIRC.

I don't see the nail holes in the bottom from the BTY metal tag on a Tamca.

Yes, it does, but Gergely was 3 + 2 carbon, but this one looks like 5 + 2 carbon. Didn't find any Tamca 7 layers blades.

You are right, there is no nail holes. I was thinking it could probably be the custom version of  BTY blade, I have seen one old custom Gergely, but never seen 2 similar blade badges on both sides of handle. Previous owner tells only, that this blade is from Japan and it is old. So, not much information. :)

Finally, I found out the origins of this blade. This is custom made blade by Russian blademaker Valery Ermakov (from mid 90-s). He was very famous in Saint-Petersburg. He also expermented a lot with materials. Famous belorussian defender Yevgeny Shchetinin played or maybe still plays with Ermakov's blade.

So, it had nothing with "Made in Japan". And it is a credit for a blademaker, I suppose, that we thought - it is one of BTY blades. :) 

Thank all for help!
