These 5 Greenland style kayak paddles all feature a thin centre strip of cherry, laminated with western red cedar. Tips are sheathed in fiberglass cloth/ epoxy resin for added durability in the surf.
These ones all shipped off to Argentina a few days ago.

Beautiful paddles, Joe! What do these weigh? Does the glassing of the tips add, significantly, to the weight? Thanks for sharing.

Hey Candy,
I did not weigh these ones. But goin by feel from handling themm, I am guessing 30 to 35 ounces depending on which one based on length etc. The glass ork on the tips is likely just over an ounce per paddle roughly.
