For years, baseball bats have been made in relatively the same way. If you look at images of players swinging a bat now versus half a century ago, the shape of the bat is fairly consistent. At the base of each of these bats is the knob, which is strategically carved out to keep your hand from sliding off the bat during your swing.

But is that knob helping or hurting your game?

Recent studies have shown the the axe-shaped handle, most widely used on all Axe Bats from Báden Sports, offers players significantly more bat control, swing acceleration and transfer of power from bat to ball, all the while reducing the risk of hand/finger injury when compared to bats with traditional round knobs and handles.

Studies have found that the geometrical shape of the oval handle, angled knob and flush backside create a more ergonomic design and a more comfortable feel overall. This design spreads the forces from a swing more evenly throughout the batter’s bottom hand. Doing so greatly reduces the risk of injury to the bones and nerves of your hands and wrists.

The axe-shaped handle also greatly reduces the risk of a thrown bat and the direct pressure to the nerves of your lower hand This allows your hands to stay reactive to your swing and leads to less instances of the bottom hand flying off the handle of the bat.
