They have a store on AliExpress:
and princett has some of their blades:
I've been tempted to buy a Yinhe Pro Feeling-like blade but I have to figure out first what outer wood I want, they have Limba, Hinoki, and now also Koto (the Arthur Pro Super ZL, see princett). Maybe one of the EJ's should sacrifice and buy one and then report back. I am not quite there yet.

I bought a Loki red flame several months ago but have to wait until next week for any game time. Probably a few sessions needed to shake down the rust and adjust

I read it’s a company in which Wang Hao is involved; not sure whether he is a partner or he just endorses the brand in exchange for a check.

Their professional line of rubbers sell for $36. Not sure how much their blades cost.  Once someone plays with their blade/rubbers please post a review about the performance and quality.

Thanks

The blades go all the way from ~$20 to ~$100, see:
I have ordered other blades & rubbers from princett and they always delivered to my satisfaction. I think Airmail is back so typically a couple of weeks.
The confusing thing for me was that the Chinese suppliers (Yinhe, DHS, Loki) sell most every combination of wood, carbon/synthetic, so one has to pretty much know the makeup of the blade before buying. Also the handles are different, from very thick (FL) like Fextra (which I like) to way too thin (for me). So it's best to play a blade before actually buying it.

As an example, go to princett and look at the Yinhe T series - 11 combinations of Cypress top, carbon, etc. (except the T11+ which doesn't fit as it has Limba top). And the clones (PD-437 = Clipper, etc.).
I do have to say, the quality of the Yinhe blades I bought (and Sanwei) was top notch as far as I can tell.

As far as LOKI is concerned, I like their handle design (the Arthur K series)...

I had bad experience with Loki shop at Aliexpress. Prior to purchasing I re-confirmed with seller whther they have weight which I need. I was assured about that 100%. Guess, what - they sent me blade 3 grams lighter. The funny thing about the whole situation was that seller would go above and beyond denying the fact that we had an agreement (even when presented with screenshot). They tried to blame my scales, which is a fair assumption, scales can be off on both sides, but I bought many blades from other sellers and somehow my scale and their scales always were in agreement, except for Loki store.

The reason why they sent me blade with the wrong weight was a silly human error. They weighted wrapped WITH thick protective film on it. Can you believe that? And then they claimed that that was what I asked for, denying the fact that I sort of don't intend to play with protective film LOL.

Anyway, good luck ordering :) I personally staying away from the Loki shop on aliexpress.

And quite opposite - keen to recommend an alternative blade maker/seller - Stour. Very good quality blades. I wanted to try how wenge and walnut plays without paying $100 USD for each. Wenge is still in progress but Walnut arrived not so long ago. Totally love:
- the communication with seller
- the accuracy of blade weight he set me
- blade quality and playing performance
- and price is a joke

This is my third blade from no-name maker. Well, I dont know ... quality is no less than BTY or Nittaku and better than Stiga (even though Stiga is my favourite brand for the last year or so ...) Stour, Yinhe and Sanwei certainly know how to make blades!

3grams difference is really not that much. I used to order some blades from BBC out in California and many times the weight would be off 2-3 grams from what he weighed to the time I received it. He said the humidity difference would probably cause a difference in the weight.

Well, I sent Loki his silly blade back and ordered from Stour. Got exact weight without any "humidity differences" caused by him putting blade on the scale with packaging :)
