Kratos: The God of Knowledge

For the cricketer who is ready to put their knowledge into practice

“I designed Kratos to have a pronounced ‘power hump’ 7 inches from the toe of the bat. It makes maximum use of the available wood to give power in the drive area. The centre spine of the bat is high and curves down to the toe, while the curved hump continues up the bat until about 10 inches from the toe.

The edges are thick either side of the power hump, getting thinner towards the handle, and the weight is controlled by removing some of the wood on both sides of the spine to give a concave shape.“

    Once you’ve ordered your Swannack item, we’ll confirm everything to you in an email. Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery within the UK and 10-14 days for items being sent outside of the UK. Delivery is by courier and will need to be signed for.

  • Bat Weight

    We don’t mark our bats with their weight. Bats will feel heavier or lighter dependent on its design, even if they’re the same scale weight. Our bats are bottom heavy, with a longer drive and more central power spot, so ideal for the 1-day or 20-over game.
