The Edisto is a classic canoe paddle handcrafted and designed to enjoy the solitude along a quiet-water trial yet durable enough for white-water rivers. Fine hand tools are used to sculpt each into a beautiful, balanced and agile canoe paddle.
Named after the Selway River in Idaho, Fritz designed and handcrafts this blade for Class III rivers to steep creeks, where performance is essential. The Selway is a curved blade design finished with a carbon fiber epoxy power face, dynel tip, edging and sleeve for added strength and durability.
The Artisan is a custom handcrafted paddle and is offered in your choice of a canoe, a stand-up board or a historical paddle design. Fritz hand selects beautifully figured and rare woods which are book-matched with an array of artistic patterns, curved stripes, marquetry or in-lay.
As recently celebrated on the pages of Garden & Gun, Town & Country, Fox & Friends, and Vogue.com, Fritz Orr Canoe brings a heritage of canoeing to life through hand crafted canoe paddles. Perfectly balanced, sculpted from select appalachian and exotic woods. Discover these truly functional works of art; handcrafted by a canoeist for canoeist.
