Great video thanks for sharing.

The speed and accuracy at which these guys work right next to unguarded bandsaw blades never ceases to amaze me. I'd be fingerless within a week!

Good share, there are three MB Malik factories in Sialkot which are run by three different people (brothers/cousins) and this is one of them.

Interesting that they press the bat almost at the end of the process, rather than before the shaping and handle fitting process.

Also the dubious fake GN bat in the shop at the end and the world's worst sticker fitting didn't inspire confidence!

I did enjoy seeing the way the handles are made though as that is often not shown in the bat making process.

What are the bats 6 minutes in with the holes down the sides?

Those holey bats and the handles are all tape ball bats. Most of the video shows the production process of a tape ball bat. Weird choice tbh
