Our Nessmuk bent shaft is crafted with one thing in mind - saving weight. We've employed western red cedar throughout with a carbon-fiber backed blade to achieve one of the lightest wooden paddles you'll ever find. Nessmuk was the pen-name for George Washington Sears, a writer for Field and Stream magazine and author of Woodcraft in the late 1800s, who helped popularize canoeing and the movement towards ultra-light canoe camping. He was a tough 103 lb. man, with a canoe named the Sairy Gamp, and we would like to think he would have appreciated this paddle: your arms definitely will.
