A classic cleaver style spanking paddle in stunning Australian Silky Oak. It's generously sized blade and medium weight will give a stinging sensation more than a thud. The blade is rounded on one side and cut square on the other to both enhance the visual appeal and provide a subtly diffrent feel. The blueish tinge along the edge of the blade is natural - being the sapwood or outer part of the tree. This is defintely a paddle which makes full use of the natural beauty its timber.
