This paddle is named for American explorer Meriwether Lewis, who along with William Clark led the Corps of Discovery expedition. An over two year perilous canoe journey from 1804 - 1806, mapping and exploring the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase. Perhaps the greatest canoe-powered endeavor of the new world, they traveled from St. Louis, MO to the coast of the Pacific in present day Oregon.
This design is painted on our Voyageur Heritage Paddle. With an elegantly traditional blade shape these are graceful in and out of the water. They’re perfect for lazy turns around the lake or for gracing the wall of your cabin. Each is a laminated combination of western red cedar, aspen and black walnut.
