I imagine it gets very expensive once you start to do it properly. Its a real craftsman's job I reckon making by hand.
it certainly can. As a one man company I have gradually over they years tried to add one new thing each year be that machinery or investment in a new product. it takes time and is hard work but it means I owe nothing to anyone
Great video and nice to see the behind scenes of where the real craftsmanship takes place.
Do you offer a bespoke service where the general public can come and pick their own cleft to be made into their new bat? And is it as expensive as the likes of other companies that charge £700+ for this type of service?
mike thanks for that. yes people can come in and do exactly that. What I tend to do is aske the person beforehand what they are looking for and then I have probably about half a dozen or so clefts ready pressed and handled ready to pick from and shape and then we make it up all for the same price as normal. there can be a small charge on top if its totally off our shape scale but I have realised over the years its more a case of helping people with good advice towards what they like and want to get the best end result.
