A Zhanchi Silk is a cube modified by the store The Cubicle(http://thecubicle.us/zhanchi-silk-p-46.html). It is lubed with their house lube, and is quite, well, silky in feel. It comes quite quiet and a bit over-lubed, but breaks into a faster cube that retains a bit of the gumminess from previous Dayan models, most notably the Guhong. The cube cuts corners as well, if not better, than a standard lubed Zhanchi. The biggest difference, however, is the gummy feeling. It feels a lot more stable, and has less speed than the regular Zhanchi(this is really personal preference, but I tend to like my cubes a bit slower than their maximum potential). The core, however, should be cleaned approximately two months after use, because of the amount of lube the store uses in the cube. From that point on, it becomes your own responsibility to lube in, and I'd highly suggest using their own house lube(http://thecubicle.us/lubicle-house-lube-p-62.html) to do so. It's best to buy this cube if you're not too handy with modifying, or if you want to test it as a main. However, I would not recommend this cube if you're slower(sup-40), nor would I recommend any Dayan cube in general, as the corner-cutting abilities will hurt your turning accuracy.
If you were satisfied with the product, feel free to buy their One-Hand Zhanchi, as it feels very similar when 3x3 OH practicing.

Good if you like Zhanchis. I prefer Guhongs, but I think they're pretty good.
Cool Guhong forever. Love my Silk too.
EDIT: and my OH Zhanchi.
Well, i just saw this cube on youtube so i was quiet wondering about this. thanks a lot for the reply! I have one more question for you if you would like to answer me again. For all the modded cubes being sold online (lubix zhanchi, silk zhanchi, force cube zhanchi, camcuber's zhanchi, etc.) which zhanchi do you think it's the best regardless on the prize? What about for guhong?(v1 or v2)
And just stay away from Atomic Cubes.
What mods do they do to it?
