Amish build Akadema’s Wood Bats in the Pennsylvania Dutch Tradition. The Amish have been considered the best wood craftsmen since their emigration to America in 1737. Their legendary expertise in fine wood products and craftsmanship continues in Akadema’s Amish Wood Bats.
The Akadema Wood Bat starts its journey in the heart of the Catskill Forest where the hardest, healthiness, straightest Northern Ash and Rock Maple is found. Lumberjacks from the region select each split of ash and maple. The wood is then sent to a mill where it is inspected, turned into billet and dried to specifications. The billet is then hand selected by Akadema’s VP of Wood Production and sent to their Amish wood shop. Without any electrical power the bats are turned similar to the process used two centuries ago in a turn of the century barn.
