Edge,,,,,lovely lovely shape,,,,picks up like a feather Ill bet
Thanks mate, really pleased with how this one's turned out.

Big bats are definitely ok as long as you play below ECB prem leagues, similar to carbon handles etc etc. Perhaps take it to the bat laws thread if people really want to discuss the minutiae further!

Do you actually have a link to an actual law or regulation that states that though? Or is this just hearsay?

Lookin awesome Ed! Anything new for yourself this season?
Cheers Dan, in an unusual move for me I haven't got any new sticks this year, although keeping this one for myself was tempting! The big one that started all this bat size chat off went so well last year I'm not even considering replacing it.

All done and it's come up really nice I think, good size bat for a concave back and lovely looking butterfly stains:

Lovely stuff Ed, some proper butterfly markings on that and nice looking grains - your workmanship is looking great!

You are a true craftsman Edge - they are all beautifully done!

Just a question on the last one, with all that irregularities on the bottom half of the blade, why wasn't the handle put in the other end?  I assume it was a partmade?

Cheers @Chompy9760 , very kind! It was a part made yep, but I would have done the same if I was handling it myself. The marks in the lower half of the blade are all just butterfly stains, which won't negatively affect the bat at all - in fact the stained areas usually ping a little better, so the one you can see showing through around the middle of the bat is actually in a great position on the blade. More importantly, most maker's first priority when choosing which end to handle is how the grains run through either end of the cleft, and the grains are beautifully straight through the toe, so it's ideal from that point of view too.

Thanks for the reply - fair enough!  I can only judge from the pics, but the grains at the top of the bat also look lovely and straight, however I don't know what's under the sticker!

I've spent a fair bit of time cutting and splitting wood with an axe, and while I can't vouch for 'ping', I can tell you without doubt that it's at least twice as hard to split wood with with knots in it Vs straight grains.  Anyone swinging an axe aims to avoid the irregularites if possible, to get the most split wood with the least ammount of effort.  So I'm certain that you have a durable bat that is most unlikely to split. :)  I'll take that over looks any day.

The worst thing about having a durable bat, is that it lowers your chances of needing to make/buy another one :D
