Curious case of the unknown bat maker
« on: September 10, 2019, 08:17:12 PM »

Can anyone possibly tell by looking at these pictures who the bat manufacturer could be?

I'm curious too...

I have a 'pro bat' that belonged to one of the current ashes teams  ;) and it looks very similar... I've been trying to work out who made it...

It had SF labels on... hmmm.....


It was

Shoulders look like someone has tried to copy Keeley but top of handle looks strange, the centre circle...
Maybe Indian SS...

I had an SF with those shoulders and a similar "knob" on the top of the handle.

It wasn't sold as an SF, but there was a nail in the handle and it was stamped with WSStanfordCricket under the binding.

I'll have a quick Hunts and see if I have any pictures of said bat...

TK

Unless you have a strong reason to believe so, I think you were misled by the same seller

The carpet in first pics seems to be phantom cricket.

Twine used in TK bats is different compared to other bat makers. I had a bat rehandled by them recently and also own several.

Compare it to the other TKs you own.

I'd suggest it's not a TK on first look

Looks TK to me - twine is very much the TK style as are the shoulders, albeit with a very slight style difference.

Ive had the occasional keeley handle like this where it is not the 12 cane inserts.

Also had bats off Ben before and know that that will be an outrageously good stick!
