Handmade in America!
Every Sanborn Canoe Co. paddle is handcrafted in Winona, Minnesota.
Keepin’ it traditional! The Duluth Pack wooden canoe paddle is a more traditional paddle made of Ash and Western Red & White Cedar, but also employing modern technology to keep it both lightweight and durable. After a long day of paddling you’ll be thankful for the long thin blade and light weight of this paddle – it is a very easy paddler. It is a straight-shaft super light-weight canoe paddle. The blade is sheathed in two layers of fiberglass, oiled palm grip, indexed shaft and thin blade are all designed to remove stress from your hands and joints.
Sanborn Canoe Co. is located in Winona Minnesota which is named after the daughter of Chief Wapasha, princess We-No-Nah. There is quite a story or legend, depending on what you believe, involving love, betrothal and suicide behind princess We-No-Nah. As the story goes she jumped to her death from a large rock rather than marry a suitor she did not love.
