I just got my hands on a special hand made Leleo Kinimaka wood paddle. I know all the guys that appreciate working with wood are going to love the pictures of this one. This paddle is so nice that I may just hang it on the wall instead of put it in the water. I also learned an interesting aspect to Leleo’s warranty. He said that in the first year if you get scuff marks on the paddle he will refinish it for free.
