Note: Our special edition paddles will be available for a limited time and only as part of our Badger Anniversary Package. There is no specific style, length or wood by which these paddles will be built, making these special anniversary paddles a set of 10 variable edition paddles. Thus, if you would like, you may build your paddle to order choosing from any one of our paddle styles, lengths or wood. (Based on availability – some design limitations apply.)
Every limited issue paddle is to be numbered, signed and dated with the year the paddle was built. Each paddle will be identified similar to a numbered print system with a unique number for each paddle and the total edition size. It will be represented in the following format – 1/10 • Mike Ramsay • 2019 – where 1/10 denotes the paddle is one of ten paddles built, and 2/10 identifies the paddle as being the second paddle of only ten, and so on.* Our paddle-maker’s actual signature will also be replicated on the shaft of each special anniversary paddle, along with the year the paddle was built (either 2019 or 2020).
*Our good friend, and PITPC partner, Preston of Portageur.ca helped with this part!
Each limited issue paddle will be distinct due to the aluminum inlay application to the Badger paw and text logos. We chose aluminum to mark this occasion as both tin and aluminum are noted to be the traditional tokens for those celebrating an anniversary of 10 years. The contrast between the aluminum and a darker wood, like walnut or cherry, provides a stunning result.
As part of our special anniversary package, when you purchase one of our limited issue paddles, TreeEra will plant 10 trees. To mark this effort, each special edition paddle will feature a small TreeEra laser engraved tree icon. All in all, Badger has committed to planting a total of 100 trees for our special anniversary year.
Recent research has shown that tree planting is good for everything from providing habitat to mitigating air quality to capturing and storing carbon emissions.
To continue with the anniversary tradition of aluminum and tin, we have also included one 1/2 pint tin of our Badger Wood Oil as part of our special anniversary package.
To round off our special anniversary package, and in addition to the extras mentioned above, when you purchase one of our limited issue paddles, you will also receive a few more Badger extras. Included on that list is: one Badger Paddle Sock, one Badger decal, one anniversary decal featuring the Paddle in the Park Contest, and one limited edition anniversary t-shirt.
Only those who purchase these special edition paddles will be able to obtain these anniversary shirts. Front of shirt depicts a silhouette of two crossed canoe paddles above the text, “For Those Who Dig The Water”. Back of shirt depicts the iconic Badger paw logo along with our text logo which simply states “Badger® Paddles”.
