Do the bends help ergonomically/mechanically or are they just aesthetic? Either way, beautiful paddles.

What Marcus asked! How do you make them? Bandsaw and spoke shaves? The Avery shaft certainly make these unique! Thanks for sharing.

That should have read “The WAVY shaft…” autocorrect strikes again!

The bent shaft is for ergonomics. It can help reduce the chance of shoulder and wrist damage. It is a bent lamination the steps are all in the first picture.
