Taking Care of Your Fearnley Bat

Here at Fearnley Cricket Shop Devon, we cherish every cricket bat we sell. Our skilled craftsmen ensure that each bat is meticulously prepared. But, as you start using your bat, it's normal for it to experience wear and tear. Here are some tips to help you get the best performance out of your bat:

  1. Oiling your cricket bat: Before each season, it's important to oil your bat using Raw Linseed oil. Follow these steps for the perfect balance:

    • Use a soft rag to apply a thin coat of oil to the face, edges, toe, and back of the bat. Remember not to over oil

    • After applying the oil, let the bat dry horizontally for at least 12 hours

    • Apply a second coat in the same manner

    • Leave the bat to dry for another 24 hours

    • Your cricket bat is now ready to be knocked in

    • To keep the wood supple and prevent cracking, we recommend oiling your bat twice a year.

  2. Anti-scuff facing and oiling: If your bat has an anti-scuff cover, the face will not need oiling. However, the back requires oiling once a year. Apply two light coats of linseed oil and let it dry for at least 24 hours before adding the anti-scuff facing

  3. Knocking in: To increase the bat's durability, we advise careful knocking in and using an anti-scuff facing. Our professional knocking-in service is available for you to add to your order. Remember these tips:

    • Gradually press and harden the fibres of the willow, taking special care with the edges and toe of the bat

    • Only strike the bat directly on the front face or front face edges, never on the back or side

    • After knocking in your bat for a minimum of 4-6 hours, test it at the nets with some short catches using an old cricket ball

    • If you notice seam marks or indentations, continue the knocking process for a longer time

    • Most bats may take up to 6 hours to be fully knocked in.
