A paddle is a canoeist’s best friend; a good one delivers a powerful stroke with ease. This native white ash paddle ($48.50) is remarkable not only for its innate lightness, strength, and flexibility (all qualities essential in a good paddle), but also because paddle smith Ricky Kiem makes it from a single piece of wood rather than by laminating several strips together. Several styles and sizes, including children’s, are offered in natural or dark finish. Available from Porter’s Woodworking, East Millinocket, Maine. 207-746-3400;
