“Paddles are made from pine and spruce, or aspen. The paddles available online are engraved with the Chief Louie Paddle Company logo and finished with 3 coats of marine varnish.
Waterwood, or pine that has been submerged in Ootsa Lake since 1952, was found to have exceptional strength. Combined with the properties of the other local woods, we are convinced that we have a superior product of individually hand carved paddles.
Paddles made from boiled aspen. Boiling is a traditional Carrier Indian method to improve workability and durability of wood products. Come in 60″ and 54″ lengths, with the option of a bent or straight shaft. Each paddle is hand carved with a unique pattern for a one-of-a-kind paddle.”
