That looks very nice mate, tad too much heartwood for me personally though. What bat is it?

That Robinson's bat has some miniscule cracks after knocking in, I'm too scared to use it against a cricket ball in case it disintegrates.

Interesting, the Robinson's bat I have is very soft and I am not sure about the pressing it has had - I am thinking of taking it to a shop and have them "knock it in" for me with a press. To be fair I was warned before I bought the bat that the pressing on Indian bats. Pics here.. http://custombats.co.uk/cbforum/index.php?topic=5070.msg79971#msg79971

I'd be very gentle, use it only against an old ball in nets. take your time knocking it in. I think I was perhaps a little aggressive early on with the mallet.

Sounds terrible!! Still hopefully it will be a go-er

Humm time - not something I have much of at the moment, as a result the bat is spending rather a lot of time in my garage and not much time in the nets!!

Liking it looks pretty nice, pretty large stain near the toe though, and the grains aren't dead straight but something about the bat just looks good cant put my finger quite on it though :P looks a good stick!

I concur Dave-o-tron - not a heartwood fan at all.

I like my bats like I like my women: thick bottomed with shapely shoulders and clean faces.
