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. The handle is finished with a corded grip, which not only adds to the bat's stunning presentation, it also feels wonderful in the hand.
Measuring 35.5 inches in length, and weighing just under 38 ounces, this bat replicates the top of the line bats that were in use during the latter decades of the 19th century. Nearly-straight tapered from the handle to the barrel, the business end tops out at around 2.38 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 and comfortable in the hands.
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.
