It is a well-known fact that cricket bats are susceptible to damage and tear.
Cricket bats endure a high level of collision with the speed of the ball hitting the bat, which sometimes result in cracks in and around the surface and edges.

Want to ensure your Cricket Bat is ready to use on the Field?
Extend the shelf life of your cricket bat with our dedicated knocking in services.
We at Hoppers Crossing Cricket Store provides our customers with the best-in-class cricket bat knocking in service. Our services also include applying a thick coat of linseed oil to the entire front and back areas of the bat. The edges are carefully knocked along with the toe and face of the bat.
In the process, the wood is compressed so that the bat can take up a hit. The main objective behind this process is to enhance the power of each bat and make it ready to use.
What is Cricket Bat Knocking?
Cricket bat knocking is a process in which the willow is compressed so that the bat can become field ready. If the process is not done correctly, then your cricket bat can become prone to damage. Some bats require more work than other models depending on the type of willow. You need to pay attention to the entire bat’s area which is why you need a professional.
How We Work?
The entire knocking process takes several hours based on how soft or hard the willow is. The bats are machine rolled and then the blades are hardened. After this, the bats are oiled at least twice and are knocked in with a wooden mallet. This procedure is done to enhance their durability.
The excess oil is wiped off from the bat. We pay special attention to the edges and toe of the bat. We ensure that enough pressure is applied without the risk of any damage.
A gentle force is applied on the bat to avoid deep bruising of the willow fibre. The trampoline effect of the bats is increased which works in the favour of the batsmen. The bats are tested for quality during every stage of the process.
Once the knocking process is completed, the blades are tested again. We analyse the bats and double-check their performance and efficiency on the field.
