To see how bad the damage was I removed the binding from the handle.

It's not good news, as one of the tabs/ears/lugs (delete as applicable) has seemingly shattered



Removing the binding has given another potential clue to the bat's original identity (well, maker at least)

And now as far as I've got. As the toe has split I decided to remove the scuff sheet to see how bad the blade was.

The heartwood is looking like crazy paving with cracks and wobbly bits of willow



There appears to be some delimitation in the middle (not seen in the photo), and there's a corner fallen off!



All in all this one may be beyond repair now.
I'll speak to the owner tonight about how (or if) he wants me to proceed, and update this thread when I know what's happening

To use a cliche that bat has had a very good innings but i think its time it was retired i think!
