Usually with j pen single plate hinoki blades you can either get 9mm or 10mm.9mm has more control less weight (usually) and more flex so they are easier to loop with.10mm is faster and usually has less flex so they are a little harder to play with and are generally more expensive.Usually when ordering a jpen i ask for a certain weight and like to see the grain.Weight is usually determined by thickness in other blades but single plate blades the drying process has a lot to do with.And the feel has got a lot to do with how tight the grain is .ususally the tighter the harderthe feel the blade has.Most 9mm weigh around 80 grams and most 10mm weigh around 90 grams
