Joe Davis is a player who needs no introduction; he was such an entrepreneur that he promoted the games of snooker and billiards at every opportunity, as well as himself. He gave his name to a number of cues over his career, which generally recorded his milestones. The Joe Davis cues are very numerous and form a collection in their own right. Both E J Riley and Peradon Limited produced cues that bore his name. The Riley cues always had a tombstone or bell shaped badge, either cream in colour or on occasion, black. The Peradon versions always had a rectangular badge.

It was customary for a player to have a "Champion Cue" carrying his name made once he had won the world Billiards championship in the late 19th and early 20th century and after about 1940 the same tradition was applied to the world Snooker championships. These cues are known as "Champion Cues". Other cues were made to commemorate high breaks and world record breaks, sometimes these cues were made to commemorate the highest break of a particular player even if they were not the current world record.
