The Papio is the latest addition to Kai Ko'o's lineup. It is a popular blade for both the OC1 and OC6. It has a lightweight blade with a substantial bite and strong catch throughout the power phase and clean release. The Papio has a good balance between weight, strength, and performance. The blade is constructed of lightweight balsa core with a 5-laminate shaft for unparalleled strength. Carbon fiber and fiberglass mesh add strength and protection to the blade. Our special edging adds edge protection doesn't chip or crack. Our comfortable "D" grip handle is ergonomic throughout the stroke. Our dihedral adds strength and stability throughout the entire power phase. The Papio comes in both straight and double-bend shafts. You can color coordinate both the edging and Kai Ko'o sticker to your liking.
