2019 Kookaburra Kahuna 4.0 Junior Cricket Bat
Out of stock
The iconic Kahuna continues to withstand the rigours and demands of modern day cricket whilst containing the traditional and unique Kahuna pick up and performance. Approaching it’s 17th birthday, this premium Grade 4 unbleached English Willow contains the recognisable Kahuna colourway and is endorsed by England international Jos Buttler.
Each cleft is different, and although replication by machine would seem a sensible direction, it does not allow Kookaburra’s Master Bat Maker to individually assess and uniquely work every cleft to maximise it’s performance. Over 50 different processes go into the production of each Kookaburra bat... TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP
Kookaburra use traditional methods to prepare willow, with clefts being left to dry naturally over a period of time rather than ‘flash’ dried in kilns. This gives greater durability as it allows the willow to find it’s natural moisture level
This process is done by hand NOT machine and greatly reduces the time needed to prepare your bat for match play. It is not a full ‘knocking in’ service and more preparation work by yourself is advised after purchase.
The unique combination of multi directional ‘Snake Scales’ creates a solid and secure feel.
