We will give your bat the equivalent of 3 hours worth of ‘hand knocking-in’
Re-press the bat if required
Clean and lightly sand the face if needed
Please Note this is just the start of the knocking in process every bat is different and should be protected and maintained. i.e. check the bat for deep seam marks and knock that area of the bat in a little more until the marks stop appearing.
The edges of your bat when new are the most important to look after, you will need to roll the edges when you receive you new bat even after the knocking in process.

Viking Bat Wax is basically linseed oil in a solid state which both seals and nourishes the wood in an easy and controlled application. This is the product we use in our own production in final polishing.
The wax has been formulated for us: after years of seeing bats either insufficiently oiled, or drenched brown by an overzealous pouring, we know your cricket bat should get the same treatment as fine furniture. Bat wax acts like an oil by nourishing the willow, like a protective wax by sealing the grain and like a polish as it buffs up after application to make the blade shiny rather than oily.
Directions for use are simple: apply regular light coats as you would linseed oil. However, the wax will dry quickly so can be buffed for use straight away, or can be left for a couple of hours to let the wax soak into the wood before buffing to a shine.
Available in a stylish (and recyclable) aluminium tin size 30ml
