BADGER® Canoe Paddles... For those who dig the water.

With oval shafts and slightly rounded grips, Badger’s designs have evolved over time to become a truly refined range of traditional canoe paddles. Remember, every Badger Paddle includes a Badger Paddle Sock (excluding Young Badgers and Cubs).

At Badger Paddles we believe in tradition and using old fashioned methods.  Our canoe paddles are handcrafted from a single piece of wood that is given its final shape by hand (except Cubs). That is why we feel every Badger® canoe paddle is a unique wood carving, and work of art, as no two paddles are the same.

All Badger Paddles are finished using methods and techniques passed on from Fiona’s Great Grandpa Sidney Badger of Badger & Son Wood Refinishers. Our preferred finish choice is wood oil, which allows us to provide a hand-rubbed finish for each paddle. We also offer a traditional varnish finish, as well as a unique combination finish with a hand-rubbed varnish on our paddle blades, with an oiled shaft and grip. Polished smooth - our hand rubbed varnish finish adds a nice old-fashioned touch.  We also offer BADGER® WaterColours™... vibrant & colourfully tinted paddles for kids n’ Cubs, and due to popular demand, for adults too.

You can personalize your paddles for weddings, gifts, retirement, or yourself.  Add a name, laser engrave your logo, your child’s art, or a hand-painted design by our Badger Paddles artist, Fiona. See our Personalization Options. Plus don’t forget, all  Badger Canoe Paddles* include a reusable Badger Paddle Sock!

*excluding Young Badgers and Cub paddles (for kids).

Note: Cub paddle style may not be exactly as shown, as in 2015 we have opted for a beavertail blade shape.


Our “Young Badgers” are made using the exact process used to build all of our hard wood traditional canoe paddles, but are shorter than our standard adult lengths and DO NOT include a Badger Paddle Sock. Standard woods used to build Young Badgers are ash or cherry, however, specialty woods and customization are available - contact us for a quote. “Young Badgers” are made for youth paddlers or smaller-framed adults.
