This is the 1880’s Style Ring Bat made by the Huntington Base Ball Co., each of these beautiful bats is hand made by Bill Rayburn of Kentucky, they’re turned from professional quality northern ash and then finished by hand using traditional techniques.
This style of baseball bat is reminiscent of the type used in the last few decades of the 1800s, they’re designed to be used on the field rather than just mounted on the wall and I can imagine that having this bat in your hand would be a rather stylish way to greet a burglar.
