Who made this?

Inherited this from a friend’s wall who passed in '06, in Canmore, AB.

Is it a canoe paddle? A photo of the entire object would provide better information to identify it.

Thanks, rookies can only post one pic…

Appears to be custom made or at least the artwork is. Nothing like it on the internet that I could find.

Ummm. Impeccably made as in shaped and the clear-coat

You might try posting on myccr.com since there are more Canadians on that site that might have some insight.

thanks, good idea

Just for fun I used google image search. Something about STAR WARS JEDI order Rebel Alliance logo (available on Amazon) but more goose oriented. Rather fun, now back to what I was supposed to be doing.

It did glow as I once raised it in self-defence…

It’s an otter-tail paddle (most paddles are broader and shorter beaver-tail blades). I have a very similar one made of cherry from Redtail Paddles, a Canadian maker, that I bought from Umingmaq Paddle Touring Center in Northern Wisconsin. I agree it could be a home made with a personalized design on it, possibly taken from First Nations’ imagery.

Thanks. It’s a 64.5" so if it’s homemade someone tall made it lol.

I’ve got a Redtail too, my fav, with a gold etched logo. Too tall it was, so I shortened it, switched to a mushroom grip. The grip I twisted a bit and nailed it (figuratively) -perfect angle. No one else gets to paddle this one :slight_smile:

Whoa, that is a loooong paddle. Maybe for a midget’s SUP?

You could use it as a “peel” to shove pizzas into a very deep brick oven.

That paddle has far more power than an ordinary light saber. Think Infinity Orb.

Have you determined whether it is a Quill or Ray’s Special?

Have you used it yet?

Tom, Not either of those, I’d looked at their site. I’ve used it a bit not much, it’s too long. So I’m waiting for a tall sea nymph to show up alongside my canoe and so I can entice her with her own beautiful paddle.

Well sun of a gun. You found me the maker. Nice. Looks like there’s some history to this guy.
