    Handcrafted by master pod shaver Andrew Kember aka AJK from some of the finest clefts, these bats are the epitome of craftsmanship and quality. These bats are seriously amazing bats - perfect balance, smooth pick-up and superb ping. I used my bat to hit a few balls in the indoor nets and the ball just rockets of the long and wide middle. Just one warning don't go in store to handpick your bat, you will not walk away with only one I am already eying my 2nd one. These bats are worth every penny!!yash, cheshireWas this review helpful to you?yes no

AJK XXIX Bat
Exclusive to Barrington Sports, the AJK bats are performance encapsulated in willow. Chosen from the pick of the timber, the best of the best grade ones, these are rare and precious clefts stemming from trees which have grown exceptionally evenly to produce the truest grain and cleanest note.

For 2014 the AJK is available is two variants; both models have the unique combination profile with languid bow and exaggerated edges, and are selected from the rarest clefts available today.

XXIX bat
- rarest grade one cleft
- deep, long bow
- mid driving area
- slightly flatter face
- rounder handle
- black labelling with chrome vignette and copper graduated beading

Once the cleft is chosen it is individually planed and sawn into the ideal dimensions for the playing area, then every ounce of power is amplified through specific targeted pressing. The more angular face is then shaped through the driving area into a subtle, fluid, bowed profile to exemplify hand-shaping and to give the magical balance and pickup associated with Andrew and Salix. The upper part of the blade however has a more traditional radius to give a unique combination profile: flatter through the driving area yet more convex around the splice. This treatment of the edges really demonstrates the difference between bat making and carpentry. The labels graduated metallic beading then picks up this movement whilst the edges flare into the unfeasibly large sweetspot.

The labels also reflect this unique bat making, at first sight traditional and understated, but actually the most complex, technical and finest design for a bat. The detail enhances the shape and finish, whilst telling the story of the bat.

All top coaches agree with suppliers and manufacturers that choosing the correct size bat is vital for the proper technical development of young cricketers. It is important that the bat is not too long and more importantly not too heavy to hinder correct stroke play and good technique.
