I purchased these three paddles from a wonderful seller on ebay. Each paddle is individually handcrafted from various hardwoods. Their size and weight make them perfect for OTK play.
First up is the teardrop paddle. The paddle blade measures 5” long by 2 7/8” wide and ½” thick. The overall length is 12 1/4”.
The paddle is comprised of two types of wood: South American Marblewood (body) and Brazilian Yellowheart (handle). This paddle is by far my favorite of the three. The grain is beautiful, and the color is a very vibrant yellow. In addition, it is very solid and dense. It is also the most perfectly balanced paddle I've ever owned. Definitely a bottom-burner.
At 3/8" thickness, the effect of the paddle is more like a wooden spoon than a hairbrush. Still, this paddle is capable of giving a serious spanking.
