« 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...

A gun is no more dangerous than a cricket bat in the hands of a madman.

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...

Keeley made bat where the player provided their own pak/ ind handle? Or is it an off the shelf bat?

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
