Our aim is simple, to make the finest cricket bats, from the very best English Willow, sourced from J S Wright, Essex (www.cricketbatwillow.com).
We aim to supply the highest quality soft leather goods & cricket equipment for the committed cricketer.
Hawk Cricket was established in 1996, by brothers Robert & Michael.
In 2004 Hawk joined forces with Double B bat makers, bringing over 40 years experience & knowledge of willow.
These expertise & craftsmanship have been passed down on to Robert and Michael.
Hawk Cricket operates on a personal basis & welcome customers & visitors to their workshop, & to browse in their recently opened Pavilion shop.
Now in their second decade, Hawk Cricket remain a family business, with the next generation already learning the skills.
OUR CRICKET BATS
Hawk Cricket combines traditionally handcrafted bench work with advanced technical methods to produce; what we feel is the best foundation for a cricket bat. Bench work and skilled finishing remain highly important to us, to create light pick ups with the modern shape cricket bat. Every blade is pressed individually to achieve optimum performance.
The handle is precisely constructed, using cane, cork/rubber and adhesive. It is then turned and fitted to the bat, set slightly forward to follow the natural bow of the blade. The handle is left oval for grater feel.
The five star finish is achieved by 6 grades of sanding, buffing and finally linseed waxing, before the high gloss labels are fitted.
