The Artisan Paddle


The Artisan is our custom handcrafted paddle and is offered in your choice of a canoe,  a stand-up board or a historical paddle. Fritz hand selects beautifully figured and rare woods which are book-matched with an array of artistic patterns, curved stripes, marquetry or in-lay.  Fritz’s prefers to use wood as a pallet which allows individual timbers to revel their grain’s tone, texture and age.  Fritz sculpts each paddle with fine hand tools into a work of art that is fully functional and ready for the water or for display. These artistically handcrafted paddles make a wonderful gift that will grow into a cherished heirloom.
