Hi everyone,

Sanwei has a quite unique penhold brand which is super comfortable, but for some reason, these blades are not promoted at all outside of China.

It took me a great deal to find and get a hold on them, but after trying it out I just fell in love.


My story started with this blade Sanwei SU-A9, I bought this around 3 years ago when I was still a basement player, this is still available on Sanwei's official website, however, Sanwei not producing this blade anymore and if you try to buy it they will kindly offer you from the new type of this blade. I know this because I liked this blade and wanted to have a spare one if anything happens so that's how I found out that there is a new version, which is on a whole new level. After that, I started investigating the Chinese Sanwei Shop and found all the new SU blades.

I will post a few photos and comments on the blades I have.

Sanwei SU-A9:
This blade is unavailable and not as great as the new versions.

There are two types of the new SU blade, the cheaper ones which are similar to the normal penhold blades but the index finger part is leaning so it's much more comfortable.

Sanwei SU-Training:
This blade is the cheapest version of the new SU blades, a premade bat with an even 5Ply all-wood structure nothing too fancy, but it's very comfortable.

You can buy this from XVT on ALI express

Sanwei SU-C:
This is the same as the previous but from a better quality of wood, still, 5ply all wood but the middle ply is much thicker which makes it faster.

The other type of these blades is the Numbered SU blades, where the left side of the blade is longer and contacts your thenar which makes the grip more stable and comfortable.
You can only buy this contacting Sanwei directly, I recommend Clark Mu([email protected]), he is super kind and helped me to buy from these blades.
The original website where I found the blades https://item.jd.com/31549452829.html

From these blades I have

Sanwei SU-2:
This is a 7ply all-wood blade quite similar structure to Fextra7. I haven't tried it yet.
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... sp=sharing

Sanwei SU-3:
This is a 17 layer blade, 9ply wood + 8 soft carbon. I used it a lot and this blade is amazing, It's quite flexy and if you touch it's slow but if you hit hard it's becoming super fast.
Unfortunately, the feel is quite subtle, so you have to listen very hard to feel the blade, I prefer the all-wood feeling.

There are two more blades from this type which I don't own:

Sanwei SU-1:
5Ply wood 2 Carbon

Sanwei SU-5:
This one is a Koto ALC blade I couldn't find the specification, probably seven-layer.


So this is all I know about this SU type blade, I shared it because it's a remarkable craftmanship and I think it should be more known and also it could save a lot of time if someone got a trace on these blades and wanna find out more.

Cheers,
Arnie
