Unshouldered paddle

Our Greenland paddles weigh between 21 - 32 oz.

Untipped paddles are made entirely out of western red cedar. Colours may vary, some cedar boards are darker).

Note: The symmetrical, narrow, double-bladed paddle used by most traditional kayak paddlers is a simple, elegant tool that provides for versatility, safety, efficiency, ease of use and excellent open-water performance. The paddles present little windage, are not feathered, and make it very easy for paddlers to use effective extended paddle positions for rolling, sculling and bracing. The natural buoyancy of the paddles also assists with side and chest sculls and balance braces—popular traditional techniques that allow paddlers to stabilize a kayak on its side to cool off, rest or just take a breather after a capsize.

Each and every paddle we make, is 'made as if it were our own'.

Our paddles are made 'one at a time', so that we can give each our fullest attention to detail and tuning.

We know that there are cheaper ways to produce paddles, but we also know that there are no shortcuts to perfection.

We only use hand selected quarter sawn western red cedar, which is slow grown, so that we have a tight close straight grain in each and every paddle. If we wouldn't use the wooden blank for ourselves...then we certainly won't use it for your paddle either.

We use traditional hand tools to carve each and every paddle. The paddles take a bit longer to make than the mass produced ones, but WE / YOU ARE WORTH it!

Every paddle has our name and logo hand burnt into it. Just another example of the loving care we take with each and every paddle we make.

Cancellations: Once paddles have been cut and tips installed, there is no refund. You can however swap for a different paddle, harpoon or accessory.Sometimes paddles can be backlogged due to people adding to their orders, which sets all orders back. Or to time I have to take off for an aging parent. Please be patient, your order is coming!

Screw Ups to your order: If there is a screw up with your order due to me messing up the dimenions or tips, then I will replace them if they aren't as was discussed and written down in my order book. There are no refunds.
