Initially developed in 2001 in conjunction with Ricky Ponting, the Iconic Kahuna cricket bat has stood the test of time and continues to meet the demands of the modern player in terms of profile, pick-up, and ultimate performance.
The Kookaburra Kahuna Pro cricket bat has been handmade using ‘Players’ quality specially selected Grade 1 unbleached English willow and includes a free of charge padded bat cover.

Each cleft is different, and although replication by machine would seem a sensible direction, it does not allow Kookaburra’s Master Bat Maker to individually assess and uniquely work every cleft to maximize its performance. Over 50 different processes go into the production of each Kookaburra bat… TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP
Kookaburra uses traditional methods to prepare willow, with clefts being left to dry naturally over a period of time rather than ‘flash’ dried in kilns. This gives greater durability as it allows the willow to find it’s natural moisture level
This process is done by hand NOT machine and greatly reduces the time needed to prepare your bat for match play. It is not a full ‘knocking in’ service and more preparation work by yourself is advised after purchase.
The unique combination of multi-directional ‘Snake Scales’ creates a solid and secure feel.
