Tom Thomson traversed the north by canoe, slogging through Canada’s rugged terrain with his paint and brushes to capture the beauty of this land. Inspired by this, we created a beautiful paddle that could traverse the very landscapes he once captured in his famous paintings.
The Thomson model has been strengthened with a hardwood blade consisting of black walnut and black cherry. We also added a resin tip to make sure it’s ready for the north. The paddle has been further refined by reprofiling the blade and grip to ensure smooth, crisp control without sacrificing performance. Experience why we go north!
