FOUNTAIN PENS

CANOES & KAYAKS

Dave’s canoes and kayaks are becoming collectors’ items. Each one takes a minimum of about a year to make, as every strip of wood has to be shaped to fit flush against the next strip, and Dave uses a tiny hand plane to shape each one. They are so beautiful that two have already been bought for display as works of art. One hangs alongside a collection of Ferraris, Aston Martins, Lamborghinis, and Harley-Davidsons, the other is destined for display in a hotel foyer in Knysna. Dave is able to custom build open, Indian-style canoes, or ocean-worthy Inuit-style kayaks, each as either a single or a double. He typically uses a combination of imported Western red cedar, cypress and ash, as well as yellowwood.

Prices are around $850 000 and are built as custom orders only.

If you’d like a bespoke one designed specifically for you, please contact us to discuss your wishes.
