Not 100% sure SK has made all of mine, but they're all guns and well made. Bob Meuleman hand picks all mine for me and hasn't disappointed so he's my go to man for an Aus made GN.

we need photos :P

I picked up two of these type of bats yesterday from Hook services in a bat swap.

Truth is there two decent bats something I wanted to try and in truth it was a surreal expectiance swapping bats at the back of a service station with 10 bats outside the car people must have thought what the hell.

Always good to meet people from different walks of live brought together by cricket. 
I do like the bats impressed as good as 90 per cent of all bats. God my wife is sick of my inner bat nerd.

Decent sticks to be fair

Love it, reminds of the time I bought a camera lens outside a dodgy tube station late at night before flying to West Africa. When needs must!  :D

You don't peel them off Alvaro, you rub them off with sandpaper don't you  ;)

Sorry, couldn't resist!

Most of the discussion here is about the big aussie gn bats. However, there are the regular sized handcrafted range such as ultimate/elite/prestige etc. Are these SK made too and are they special? Anyone owned/used these other bats from Aussie handcrafted range?

I've got a Silver and used to have an Ultimate, believe the pressing on them is as good as my XXX. Correct preparation and they're as good as anything else.
