We work hard all year to make our paddles at a very high standard. Making things by hand means that sometimes we'll mess up! Well we save all of these paddles and run a Paddle Sale every winter. These paddles are still very nice, just with minor flaws...and a steep discount!
Additionally, this year we're including a number of one-off paddles, prototypes, etc. These are typically first quality, but still heavily discounted.
Second Quality Note: These artisan paddles may have a minor flaw (scratches, discoloration of wood, jagged paint lines, etc.). Though they are not first quality, at least one side of the paddle still looks good and will look great hanging on a wall or leaned up in the corner of a home or cabin. All sales on second quality products are final.
The Sanborn Artisan designs are painted on our Voyageur Heritage Paddle. With an elegantly traditional blade shape these are graceful in and out of the water. They’re perfect for lazy turns around the lake or for gracing the wall of your cabin. Each is a laminated combination of western red cedar, aspen and black walnut.
The paddle I received was not a second. There was a glitch in the website and I was able to order a paddle that was already out of stock. Customer service jumped right on it and offered my a new 1st quality paddle in place. Sanborn paddles a little works of art! Thank you.
