A truly unique paddle design. The oval paddle shaft is made from ash and butternut with a football style birdseye maple grip. The blade core is ash, white cedar and basswood with an overlay of walnut and ash veneer resembling a feather.
These paddles are distinguished by their long slender blades and overall resilience. Originally carved from one piece of wood from a small tree, cedar and basswood were prized because of their light weight while ash, maple and cherry were chosen for strength and durability. Cherry was especially preferred for its resistance to rot and warping along with being relatively light in weight.
Though not the easiest paddles to use in depths below 12&rdquo, one can learn to manage quite well with a &lsquosweep stroke&rsquo. All basic strokes such as the &lsquoJ&rsquo and &lsquoC&rsquo strokes, along with draw, pry and feather strokes evolved from this type of paddle.
No other paddle can give you the enjoyment and feel of cruising like a traditional paddle. The blade width area is more than adequate to maneuver your canoe so pick the model that appeals to your price range, usage and aesthetics.
