Cheers jb,,,,its a lovely cleft tbh, makes it a lot easier when the willows as nice as that

It still needs an immense amount of pride and workmanship to turn it out like that though 👍🏼

I have to say you do put a lovely finish on your bats!

Out of interest though, what would you grade this particular bat?

In all seriousness, I can only sell them/grade them on how the clefts are sold to me
That particular bat is a grade one in my eyes,,, but for whatever reason taps up really well, so would command slightly more because of that

Can't argue with that, trying to fathom how different bat makers grade their bats is baffling. surely it's more about the performance of the bat...

Absolutely agree
As for looks, it depends if there is something that may affect the blades performance or longevity
Im lucky in that the choice I have is all my own choosing,,,

Personally I love markings/knots etc in a bat

But Im not a fan of butterfly tbh
