What wood are Case Batons made from?
Case Batons are an Australian company and their grips are individually turned on a lathe from a variety of timbers, mostly Australian hardwood timbers such as Spotted Gum, Red Gum, and Coolibah Burl. Some even use a hybrid of both timber and resin. As each of their batons are individually made, no two batons are alike
Are Case Batons able to fix my baton if the shaft breaks?
Because of Case Batons' stable design of their batons, the shaft is permanently fixed to the heel or grip. As such, they are unable to replace just the shaft. They have however in the past made new batons replicating the wood and design of the original baton.
What are the different grip options available?
Case Batons use 6 specific styles of grip which vary greatly in shape. These are the only grip styles that they offer. Though as each of their batons are individually made, these grips will vary in length, thickness and taper. This often happens with individually made batons as the material itself will determine the final outcome
