Does anyone know who could make a brush in the shape of a bat? Thank you.

You may want to check with Bob Quinn at Elite Razor.  He's quite skilled at turning brush handles and is one of the more highly regarded brush artisans.

Rudy Vey is another brushmaker I can recommend highly. 

Not sure how a baseball bat would handle for shaving ...

I've always imagined the Rooney 2/1 to be a baseball bat. Come to think of it the B&B 09 is sort of close too, but still prefer the 2/1 when it comes to a baseball bat. Should be interesting to see!

What dimensions and at which end do you want the knot?

What a great and unique brush!  Rudy did it quite fast.  What type of wood is it?

Thank you. It’s Maple, most bats are either maple or ash.

I learned that last night watching The Natural. I was wondering what bats were made of and I was reasonably sure they were ash so I looked it up. That is where I saw they at some point allowed Maple. I love maple on guitars. I have one with a nice cut of flamed maple on the back and sides.
