Handmade cricket bats, our promise

As independent cricket bat manufacturers, we take great pride in making every single Stag Cricket Bat in-house. Each bat is individually handmade by our Master Bat Maker, John Karassellos, using the best grades of English willow and following our custom bat making process.

Our clefts come from genuine willow grown in Kent and are carefully selected by John, ensuring only the best raw materials are used. From start to finish, your bat is machined, pressed, shaped and finished to the highest professional standard, creating durable and high-performing English willow cricket bats at affordable prices.

International cricketers Gudakesh Motie, Nial Smith and Jomel Warrican are proud Stag Ambassadors and use our English willow cricket bats.

We also offer Kashmir willow cricket bats for junior players.

Every Stag Cricket Bat, whether made of Kashmir or English willow, is handmade in Kent.
