2017 Salix bat extras

Workshop preparation

Workshop preparation

The preparation by Salix which takes the bat to the point of knocking in by the owner.  Bat Wax polished, Bat Vax faced and Bat Vax toe sealed to give the best start for a bat without compromising the aesthetics, balance or visible quality of the blade. 
Bat Wax is burnished into the willow to give the bat a sound foundation for the first season with further waxing or oiling required before the second season’s usage
Bat Vax toe transparently seals the end grain on the toe without masking the willow like a guard (discerning cricketers are still able to see the vital toe area: a cross section of the blade revealing wood quality and indicating longevity)
Bat Vax facing helps protect the surface fibres from hard, new balls
Workshop preparation works best in partnership with skilled players who understand their blade and maintain it throughout the season to maximise both performance and longevity

Salix BAT WAX

Cricket bat care - Wax

Salix Bat Wax is basically linseed oil in a solid state which both seals and nourishes the wood in an easy and controlled application. This is the product we use in our own production in final polishing.
The wax has been especially formulated for us: after years of seeing bats either insufficiently oiled, or drenched brown by an overzealous pouring, we thought cricket bats (especially handmade bats) should get the same treatment as fine furniture or shoes. Bat Wax acts like an oil by nourishing the willow, like a protective wax by sealing the grain and like a polish as it buffs up after application to make the blade shiny rather than oily.
Directions for use are simple: apply regular light coats as you would linseed oil. However, the wax will dry quickly so can be buffed for use straight away, or can be left for a couple of hours to let the wax soak into the wood before buffing to a shine.
Available in 2 sizes of smart (and recyclable) aluminium tins - 15ml and 60ml. The 15ml size is ideal for one bat, the larger for multiple bats or to last over seasons.
The smart way to care for cricket bats.
