A wooden blade is magic. From a tree’s life, a timber is sculpted by awakened hands into a feeling of grace and power in the water. Wood is carved, not stamped, and each wooden paddle is an extension of the grain’s character; an integrity to explore and get to know. Wood is easier on the body and with proper maintenance and care a wooden paddle becomes a long life friend. When asked, a wooden paddle is easier to repair or restore. A wooden canoe paddle is a partner in the canoeist journey, not something to use then disregard, instead an art to pass on.
