Hi Speedstick
I seal all of my blades without exception.

Bleachfan92
From the picture it seems that you sealed the blade face and not the sides. Am I correct ? What I do is seal lightly the blade face and seal the sides more, in order to protect it from bumping to the table.

to aeoliah, i do not seal my blades. the custom bty comes with a pre layer of seal after they finish making it and the layer is really really thin. small nicks on the edges can be recovered by dipping one or two drops of water into the nick. as hinoki is a softwood it absorbs the water and the grains would rise again. after the water DRIES a light sanding would return every thing to normal. sealing the edges is a irreversible process.

Got this from a famous Hinoki collector in China he owns almost all the best Bty Hinoki Jpens including the legendary Bty Vintage 2001 Limited Edition. This blade plays better than all of my other Bty Cypress Custom Special that's why I am willing to let go of some of my Custom Special collection. It is 9.4mm 82g and is as powerful as any 10mm Custom Special but with better control due to better wood quality.

The first picture is Cho Tokusen A, it is taken when it is brand new, so it is not yet sealed. The second is Darker Speed 90, and the third is Cho Super 10 mm from Kokutaku. Sorry, I am not good at taking picturesWink

The hinoki nowadays is different from those many years ago. Those times, they r like orange-brown in colour. Nowadays, they r all whitish. Maybe they r treated, I don't know ...
 
Cutting down hundred years tree to make blade seems "cruel". Anyway, they r going to be more and more valuable ...

Somewhere out there .... Smile
 
I go for a rounded-square shape instead since my style is pretty much close to table.

Here are my two most loved weapons:

Yasaka Musashi, with RPB rubber. 
I decided to convert from shakehand to penhold a few months ago when I finally found about RPB, so I developed my RPB using a usual shakehand T-11 blade, but found out that fingers get too sweaty too fast when they are on a flat rubber, so I decided to move to Jpens and fell in love with them quickly. Smile The grip, the feel and the look are just out of this World Smile

Here is the BH side of my Musashi:


I was trying some other blades too, but I had one problem which I couldn't solve for several weeks - I could not control the racket properly no matter which rubber I put on it. I was desperate until I finally decided to make a search for Jpen RPB on MyTT Embarrassed and quckly found the solution - I had to put something into the handle for proper balance! So, here we go - a screw and a door key head (two on the photo, but I removed one as it was  enough) Tongue


So, now I'm enjoying Jpen and RPBing with it in full flavour Big smile

My training partner told me that my play is now too RPB-centric, so I decided to use another blade to make myself more forehandish and it really helped. Here it is:


It's BTY Cypress-S, very good and I enjoy it a lot together with the Thor's rubber.

The previous owner of the Cypress was playing RPB too and so he's removed most of the cork from the back, so I had to find some cork covering to restore ergonomics:


Before I've found the "magic key", my EJism was extremely wild. Now, it's moved more to the rubbers, but I've found that it's much easier to live with, especially when I have finally found that it's all about the balance Smile

I did not know that adding weight to the handle will make rpb easier. How did you come to this solution ? Anyhow, thanks for this info.

Well, as I said, I just made search form "Jpen RPB" on MyTT and saw some pictures that gave me some clues Smile  But balancing the paddle is not about RPBing, it's about making the blade easier to handle (i.e. how easy your wrist can rotate the racket and change directions). Basically, moving balance to the head adds pluses to the racket's OFF value, it's easy to attack with this beast, but it's not good for short game because your wrist should spend more energy to stop racket's swing, so most balls will go over the table or into the net unless you have very good touch.

As about Jpen, the blades are build so that they're balanced properly when there is only one rubber sheet on the racket. Adding another sheet will break the original balance and you will have to restore it. My Cypress-S was modified so the BH rubber was cut in a larger piece than the FH (it was extended almost to the handle), that made the paddle very heavy, but the balance was somehow made almost the same as with one rubber, but I didn't like the feel on my back fingers, so I made it "normal Jpen". One day, I think I'll spend some bucks on the normal cork sheet for the Cypress-S because it's a really good one. Hope, it wakes some thoughts Smile

My rounded-squre AK ...
 
 
Kevin made a very good and balance blade. It doesn't vibrate as much as hinoki (too much IMO) but definitely much faster than it and much more controllable than ZLC haru ...

After two sessions, like the blade more and more. It was very well-made and gives a very comfortable balance feeling. The rounded base cork handle makes turning the blade very easy and comfortable when blocking. The blade hardness is somewhere between medium and hard. It doesn't vibrate as much as hinoki but with the slight vibration, it still gives a good feel. It is hell lot faster than hinoki and very much controllable as compare to Butterfly ZLC. I like the sound of the ball hitting onto the blade. I put on T05FX so that I can compare with my Haru. It is like a controllable version of Haru. Fast but controllable. Short game over the table is good. Chop, push, flip, swing, etc. The blade also blocks well. It feels "dense" where I can drive, smash and loop with ease. Pull away a bit till mid-distance I can impart some "crazy" side-spin to my loop (could be due to T05FX as well).
 
In summary, I can't find anything unhappy about this blade and very tempted to order another one just for safe keeping. Anyway, thanks Kevin, you made an excellent blade! Smile

Even though AK is very dense, there is still a minimum thickness. Kevin recommends not less than 6.5mm. Anything less I believe it vibrates too much and lack strength/power. At 93g with the cork handle feels okay to me but at 6.5, u may get it below 90g.

i have totally different experience on my AK...
it is control blade, just lack of power......
i try to put on Hexer+, Rakza 7, and i still found it lack of power compare to my other Hinoki 10mm....

That pretty strange since the other user (jonathan) mentioned that it is powerful but lacks refinement. And the other shakehand user has very good review too. Anyway ur cut is pretty similar to mine except the shape. I guess that's one thing about custom blade, you don't get two identical blade. May even be different portion of the wood ...

I think in general, the thicker it is, the faster it becomes. So 10 mm blade will be faster than 7 mm blade.
I have Kokutaku Cho Super 10 mm weighing only 80 grams, so I was hoping to get this Ancient Kauri 7 mm below 80 grams. My Nittaku Cho Tokusen 9 mm also weighs 80 grams.
