While winter has set in and my own paddlemaking hobby slows down, I thought I'd begin a series of posts on exotic paddles from around the world. Here's a pic from the Australian Art Network. A pair of ceremonial paddles from Borneo from an unknown artisan
Ceremonial Paddles - Dayak, Borneo
I find the blade shapes with their soft curves and blunt arrowhead style tip very appealing and might try this design in the future.
I'm an avid canoeist and general "outdoorsy type" guy with a bit of an artistic side. Recently started this hobby of making custom canoe paddles after my disappointing experience with most commercial brands. This site documents various styles of single blade canoe paddles I've made or researched as well as other canoe related info I've stumbled across on my internet wanderings. Hope you enjoy your visit.
