While searching on my computer of old saved images, I came across another Maliseet style paddle from New Brunswick that I haven't posted on. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have the original link or photo credit source about it, so if any readers of the blog recognize this paddle, feel free to comment.
Not the best lighting but a bit of photoshop adjustment and closeup of the grip reveals a decorative carving with the letters "HBC". No other info on the date or dimensions.
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.
