Has James from Lekka been teaching you the art of forum posting?!

Nah Leo, I've got my sound turned right up and I've not heard any toys falling from the pram yet :D

Nope, Norbs is banter account but is helpful as well in terms of Q&A. SAF is an advertiser account and is running this Q&A

But to answer you previous question....

Norbs made his bat from pressed clefts, I make my bats from start to finish... Pressing, handling and shaping each of them myself

Ah, so Oscar is Norbs.

And your bats are made by a dog. Unique selling point I'll admit. :)

Yes, that's it.

What's the best bat you've used (excluding your own)?  And which batmakers out there do you respect the most?

If you are not making a custom bat i.e just a stock bat how do you know its finished? Do you have a set of parameters to work to before you start on cleft e.g. 2.10lbs, low middle etc or is it an evolutionary process where you let the willow decide?

What are the specs of your match bat

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.
