Grey Owl Chieftain Oiled


Grey Owl

Grey Owl Chieftain Oiled

An all-around solo paddle with a medium flex. Made from choice black cherry with football style grip and an oval shaft. Cambered blade with very fine edges and hidden plastic tip insert. Available with linseed oil finish.

These paddles are distinguished by their long slender blades and overall resilience. Originally carved from a single piece of wood, the blades were narrow to prevent warpage, but with a long enough area to propel the craft effectively. The blade is scaled to the shaft and gets larger as the shaft length increases.

These paddles are a pleasure to use for day in, day out, all day paddling. The longer blade limits these paddles to deeper water (2' - 3' minimum).
