DKP Icon Cricket Bat | All Sizes AvailableRegular price $612.00 Sale price $355.00 Save 42%
The DKP Icon stands out with luxurious black and gold decals, intricate fine details including DKP watermarkd logo. Delivering power and control with a mid-middle and an exaggerated hump in the sweet spot putting all the power in the centre of the bat.
The pick-up and feel of the DKP Icon is second to none, the performance matches that, giving what is truly a test grade cricket bat. With a high spine and thick edges, making for a large sweetspot.
The DKP Icon works beautifully for players who love to pull and cut the ball, which comes from its ability to feel as though the bat weighs less than it is.
Every angle is precisely shaped and smoothed through our unique sanding so the bat has a stunning glow. This is more sculpture than carpentry from the master bat maker at DKP.
Made from the very best Grade 1+ Players or Grade 1 English Willow, using lightweight clefts, each bat is handmade from start to finish with every bat being triple pressed to get the best performance.

Our DKP Icon bats are offered in two grades as described below:
Players Grade 1+ will be the best pieces of wood we have in our workshop and would be the same quality that the professional cricketer would utilise. For example, tight grain or predominantly sap wood which is all white wood, no blemishes and exceptional performance as used by international players. This grade is very rare and is limited in availability.
Grade 1 English Willow cricket bats will have 7 or more Grains, which will have a clear white face and no blemishes on the face of the blade or with a small strip of heartwood. Heartwood is from the centre of the tree and is generally preferred by pro players.
