REVIEW

Emerging from the willow-rich Yorkshire woodlands is another strapping demonstration of the lauded Kippax craft. The company grows their own willow and with over 40 years in the business, they know what cuts it. Flat-faced, minimal grains, an even spread of wood, and with a few ounces of weight taken out via the concave carvings on the back, this one, in true Yorkshire fashion, has been built to last. The only concession to funkiness is the unique ribbed handle, designed to give the batsman a more intense feel in the grip.
