Hi all and welcome, I am great believer in tradition and only make
cricket bats using tradiontional tools, these tools have been used in
the bat making process since the 1750's so who am I to argue with
this tried and tested process.
The bats and profiles I create from English willow all have a meaning
to me.That is, they are shaped that way because, I know what makes
them perform, in which areas they will perform and why it will perform.
The willow is selected to suit a shape I don't just put my hands on a
piece of willow and say "That looks nice, that'll do" The profile needs to
suit the willows full potential for performance not the other way round.
