Russian Tutor’s paddle
This was designed by my Russian born apprentice, remembering what was used to insure school assignments were done with the proper excellence and turned in on time.
It is made of thick (1/2″ plus) Beechwood allowing for a deeper impact than our usual paddles. The holes are an inch in diameter. It has an extra long handle (approx 6 1/2 inches) to facilitate different impact speeds – the farther back you hold it the faster it goes.
Click on the thumb nail image. A friend suggested another use, making it a 3-in1 paddle.
It is approx. 14″ x 4 1/2.
The wood is quite stingy due to the paddle’s weight, the foam side is loud.
