The Gunflint Trail area has long elicited a sense of adventure for those who have trod its many trails or paddled its many lakes. Countless explorers have entered this gateway to our beloved canoe country and returned satisfied. This spirit, that is alive in every canoeist, steered the design of our Gunflint paddle. The Gunflint has a wide blade and is built to move a lot of water. So, if you seek to ply the water on those days when the wind seems to thwart you with every stroke, this is the paddle for you.

I recently purchased from Rutabaga both the Sanborn Gunflint and Gille paddles for my solo canoe paddling. The workmanship of both paddles is excellent. The larger blade of the Gunflint moves my carbon fiber NorthStar Solo and Swift Osprey canoes faster than the smaller bladed Gille but what a joy this smaller paddle is to use. It is very quiet and this is important to be for I do a lot of wildlife photography from my solos.
Rutabaga was a great company to do business with. The paddles came to PA in 3 days and Connie was most accommodating when taking my orders.
