Canoe and Kayak Store is an independently owned, specialist paddle-sport store based in Gloucestershire. We also have a store in South Wales inside the Cardiff International White Water Centre, where you can Demo our boats and paddles on the course.

Our roots trace back to the year 2000 when Richard (having paddled since he was a child) was offered the chance to buy a canoe business. Loving the industry but not liking the company he decided to set up his own – opening a shop in Gloucestershire and leading to where we are today!

    Season :

    Code : 003075

    Weight : 0KG

    This new boat from the Dagger team is the Samurai sword of kayaks (where it takes its name) – it’s sleek, durable and strong as well as built to totally glide through the waters. The Aqua/Granite Dagger Katana E is a touring kayak with all the pizazz that’ll have it chopping through whitewater with style.

    There’s a dropdown skeg in this design to keep the adventurous on course as they explore new lakes and flat waters smoothly and securely. If you’re up for a bit of rough and tumble then the Dagger Katana E in Aqua/Granite can pick up the pace with the best of them and slicing through the chop and blasting through the whitewater is more your thing - then this kayak can show you a good time.

    As well as its performance being versatile, it’s got a well thought out storage system too. With enough room in the storage hatch to keep stuff for an overnight trip without hindering its performance, the Katana E just begs for a night further afield.

    It comes in two different sizes with a capacity of 102kg and 136kg. The 9.7 model is 292cm in length and the 10.4 is 315cm. It’s built for beginners and experienced paddlers alike.


    • Available in two sizes
    • Plenty of storage
    • Suitable for beginners and experts

    Buyers Guide

    Which Dagger Touring/Crossover Kayak is Right for Me?


    Crossover: Try Everything

    Katana E

    A crossover kayak that truly excels in any water, the Katana was designed to inspire confidence in the paddler with a balanced rocker profile for speed on the flat and maneuverability in whitewater. The hull is designed for initial stability while the beveled and flared side-walls create secondary stability. The rounded stern deck shape, taken from the Mamba design, sheds water easily, making it forgiving in moving water. The Katana also offers a more spacious cockpit than traditional whitewater designs for a less confining feeling.

    Comes with Action Outfitting. Also Available in Contour Creek Outfitting.


    Adventure Recreation: Fuss-Free Day Trippers

    Axis E

    A must have for any adventurous paddler. The sleek hull combines rocker and rail edge giving excellent manoeuvrability, with keel and skeg to aid tracking. The accessible cockpit, outfitted for comfort and control includes storage features making the Axis a boat with limitless possibilities.

    Comes with Contour Lite Outfitting.


    Touring: Adventure Starts Here

    Alchemy: Turn your adventure to gold

    Stable, responsive, and a joy to paddle … with enough performance to keep up on any type of water. The Alchemy is a kayak at home in rock gardens, intercostal waterways, or on your local river. Ample storage and performance outfitting to stand up to any adventure, and the TruTrak skeg system for added control and speed.
    Comes in 2 sizes: the 14.0S for smaller or mid-sized paddlers or the 14.0L for larger paddlers.
    Featured as an Outside Magazine "Editor's Choice".

    Comes with Contour Lite Outfitting.


    Stratos: The Do-it-all Touring Kayak

    Designed to excel in the surf, rock gardens, and open water paddling, but just at home on tidal estuaries and meandering rivers, the Stratos is the perfect balance of tracking, maneuverability, and forgiveness.
    Beginners will love the stability, while intermediate and expert paddlers will find that the Stratos’s sporty hull is fast and maneuverable on any adventure. An adjustable drop-skeg aids tracking, and with two hatches, bulkheads, and deck bungees, gear storage has never been easier. Perfect for multi-day touring adventures, and just as capable for a day trip to your favorite rock garden or surf spot, the Stratos is a do-it-all kayak that stays with you on every step of your journey.
    Comes with Contour Lite Outfitting.

    Hi, My name is
    My Email Address
    My Phone Number
    My question about Dagger Katana E Aqua/Granite Kayak is...

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


    Thanks for choosing his item ...
