Ebay - Cree style paddle

From this Ebay Seller is a 58" paddle with a large narrow blade and a nubby style grip. Credit again to Luc P for sending me the link. The paddle's overall shape looks quite similar to Cree Style paddle blades posted on in the past, although to my eye, it looks as though this design would be quite blade heavy and unbalanced.


This is from the same seller that featured a huge, 96" northwoods style paddle a while back as well as the 84" Mustard Yellow painted paddle from the post on February 7th..

Blog reader, Luc P, sent a link of a vintage canoe paddle from this seller on Ebay. It's another big one -  84" - covered with a mustard yellow paint. The seller lists it as a "lovely old primitive Indian made wooden paddle"
