New Paddles!

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. 

Next is the hairbrush paddle. The blade is 5 1/2” long by 3” wide and 3/8” thick. The overall length is 12”. The entire paddle is crafted out of North American Poplar. Poplar is a very strong but light hardwood.

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.

The last paddle measures 10 3/8” long. The paddle blade is 4 1/2” long by 3” wide and 3/8” thick. It is crafted out of Zebrawood from Central Africa. The thin rectangle blade provides a good amount of sting without much thud.

I love the finish on these paddles. Each one is treated with several coats of high-gloss polyurethane. The result is a smooth glass-like surface which, in theory, should make these paddles much more stingy than your average wood paddle.


  1. They're so pretty! Hard to believe that they can be the instruments of pain and passion.


  2. Think we've located some weapons of Ass destruction!

  3. Those are gorgeous! Did you leave any for the rest of us?
