Model 001

Hand made by Bill Rayburn of Kentucky, this incredible bat is turned from professional quality northern ash which is then impeccably finished by hand. Finely detailed throughout, from the hand painted rings to the hand rubbed finish, this bat will not disappoint.

Similar to the Model 000 in length, the Model 001 is slightly more substantial in weight. Measuring 35.5 inches in length, and weighing a shade under 40 ounces, this bat replicates the hefty bruisers that were in use during the latter decades of the 19th century. Nearly-straight tapered from the handle to the barrel, the barrel tops out at around 2.43 inches in diameter while the thinnest portion of the handle bottoms out at 1.25". A truly substantial bat, that while heavy, feels incredibly balanced.

While these bats are finely crafted and present beautifully on display, they are just as comfortable on the ball field. Each bat in the collection is designed for use by anyone, from the pluckiest novice to the most dedicated vintage ballist.

Cord wrapped handle is now available in the options menu.
