Have you got a cricket bat with a handle that is broken or cracked? We will replace your old handle with a brand new high-quality Manu cane handle

If your bat has cracks running down the shoulders onto the blade, you also require a minor crack repair.

PLEASE NOTE: We offer a 12-month warranty on handle replacements as long as there wasn't any previous damage to the shoulders or neck of the bat

  2. Glue - A new Singapore Manu cane handle into place
  3. Shape - The handle to your specified shape
  4. Full Refurbishment - Sand, polish and fix any minor surface cracks on the bat (Optional)
  5. Bind - The new handle with a high-quality thread
