Dkp bats
« on: November 28, 2018, 10:19:07 AM »

Who makes DKP bats? Does anyone know? They say they are made in the Midlands but I am struggling to think of many bat makers in the Midlands other than B3?

If anyone knows I'd be grateful

Guess that depends on what your definition of the Midlands is.  Hawk?  B3?  GM?  Hunts County?

DKP guy was a PITA to deal with. Really helpfully when taking your money but not so much afterwards (glove had a large hole in- minor to sort but he really dragged it out). This is where that dodgy CEAT I bought with the mouldy knot under the stickers came from. I would buy through ebay for the protection offered there if at all... that's all I would say.

Edit: Apologies to DKP, having checked my emails it was The Cricket Shed who ripped off Chase's new stickers and they have since changed the design it appears.

Yes he's in sollihull  if I remember correctly the owner is Nik Patel

pretty sure he used to be in Stourport on Severn in the heart of Worcestershire  saw a few guys in the Worcester league  with his bats  in 2018 inc one guy at my club the ball flies off his  the bat  the grip looks Sub continent he as pictures of a workshop on a local selling website contacted him by email re a bat  about this time last year after the fourth email from me re the bat specifics  he didn't reply.

I ordered one of his bats at the weekend and I have to say his service was second to none.

They very kindly upgraded a bat for me as when I purchased online the bat I picked had already sold.

A teammate of mine has had two bats off Nick this year and both are belters.

I've had 2 x New balance bats off him in the past and again I can not knock the quality for what I paid!

Reopening this discussion - any idea who makes his own brand bats? look decent value

DKP state they make their own  bats outside Birmingham probably Birmingham Rd  Sollihull  where he's based and have photos of a workshop  you can visit  by appointment the guy is called Nik the initials DKP  are in memory of  Niks  late father Denish Patel

I purchased an SG players bat from him last year and its currently my match bat.
The bat specs were as advertised - so no discrepancy there.

For his DKP brand,  I have asked to keep me in mind if he gets a 2.7 with 40 mm edges in mens full size
