Signature package

The Signature bat is the flagship of our range. We only produce five or six of these bats every year as it is imperative that the quality of willow is unsurpassed. The Signature Series is the type of bat that a bat-maker can scarcely bear to part with - an incredibly good piece of willow turned into the finest bat imaginable.

Laver & Wood's Flagship Cricket Bat

The Signature bat is made to your specification and comes presented in a case made from high quality, locally sourced New Zealand timber. You will also receive a bat cover and an array of accessories to assist with complete bat care. Your initials can be either engraved or printed on the bat to complete the personal touch. All Signature Bats are individually numbered and signed by James Laver, founder and owner of Laver & Wood Cricket Bats. The Signature bat is accompanied by a second bat that is for use as a practice bat. Some of our Signature customers actually use this second bat in matches as they cannot bear the thought of using the Signature bat they have just purchased!

It is highly unusual for us to have more than two pieces of Signature Grade willow available at any one time. Therefore we have a waiting list in operation. Each willow shipment is carefully graded and only one or two clefts per hundred will make the Signature grade. Please email us to enquire about putting your name on the waiting list.

Please fill in our free bat-sizing form and mention that you are interested in the Signature bat in the Additional Comments box.

Signature Bats can be made in an array of sizes & styles including Short Handle, Long Handle and Long Blade within a weight range of 2lb7ozs to 3lbs6ozs. Please contact James Laver for details of the type of bat that will best suit your game. We will endeavour to cover specific details of your game to make sure that the bat is suited perfectly. You can be assured that we insist on detailed communication before we begin production.
