Click HERE to bid, auction ends 11/24 at 7pm!
For the Warstic Flagship Store and Headquarters Grand Opening, founder Ben Jenkins designed a bat unlike anything we've done before. 49 of these Limited Edition Bats are on auction now, bat #01 was auctioned off in-person at the event with a winning bid of $1200. All of the proceeds from this auction will be donated to the American Indian Stic Warriors Fund and our designated charity for the Grand Opening Weekend, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women USA.
Inspired by the Japanese technique of Yakisugi or Shou Sugi Ban, we charred 50 Ash Wood Bats, blackening them beyond what we do with our traditional flame treated style. The Hawk and the Buffalo are beautifully engraved on each of these limited edition bats.
Designed by artist Ryder Evan Robison, these animals are painted on both the outside and inside of the Warstic Flagship Store symbolizing clear vision and resilience. We felt they were fitting mascots for our grand opening event shown on merchandise, posters and they even inspired the team uniforms for the sandlot game, Jack White's White Bison and Ian Kinsler's Gold Hawks. Each bat was glossed to protect the finish, given our gold Warstripe and Chevron logo decals, autographed in gold by Warstic co-owners Jack White and Ian Kinsler, and hand numbered on the knob.
Why MMIW USA?
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women USA, and other groups like them, bring attention to the missing Indigenous women and girls, working tirelessly to bring them home, or bring them justice. Visibility is key to solving any missing person case, and we hope that using our platform brings more attention to this cause.
