Omer Stringer Style Hand-crafted Canoe Paddles
As a tribute to a great friend and mentor, Carrying Place Canoe
Works has produced a paddle to honour the memory of the late
Omer Stringer, Canada's premier solo paddler,
guide and canoe builder.
Using a paddle designed by Omer, we have reproduced it in the same
method he did. The paddle is hand-carved
with the exact dimensions, shape, blade flex and attention to detail.
It is made in seasoned black cherry.
|These paddles are the finest ever made,
with just the right flex, shaft thickness and blade shape allowing
the paddler to use it all day, without fatigue. It is also excellent
for solo paddling.
Plus Shipping and Handling
Our women's paddles feature slightly smaller top Omer Stringer'
style grip and slightly narrower shaft to accommodate smaller hands
for less fatigue.
- CHILDREN'S PADDLES -
Our children paddles are hand crafted using 1 piece of seasoned
black cherry. The design includes a slimmer shaft, the sculpted
Omer Stringer' grip is made for a child's hand size with a blade
to correspond. The grip and blade is of the same quality as our
The paddle is of the highest quality that will last until it is
outgrown and then can be cherished as a family heirloom until the
next generation comes along.
The price is $69.00 - A great gift anytime of the year.
HOW TO MEASURE FOR
- Pick up a paddle as if you are about to go paddling.
- Let go of the top grip and let the paddle down with your shaft
hand still gripping the shaft in its' paddling position.
- Keep the paddle parallel to your body. Allow your arm to reach
full extension. The top of the paddle should reach between your
chin and your nose.
- If you do not have a paddle, measure the distance from your
thumb joint to your mouth. This will be the length of the shaft.
All blades are the same size.
