The Galaxy Venus V-14 blade is the 2010 replacement for the Galaxy K-4 blade. This means that the V-14 is a fast, smooth looping blade built in the same style as Japanese looping blades. The V-14 did gain a little bit of weight in the transition (4g) and shed just a hair of speed, it is the controlled close to mid distance looping blade of the V series. What is CarboKev? Each layer of cloth is made up of two fibers, the vertical is Carbon Fiber while the horizontal is made of Kevlar fibers. This gives the sweet-spot of carbon, but less hard and harsh of a feel.
