Greenland Paddle Blade
The paddle blade length is determined by the distance remaining from the overall length of the paddle minus the length of the loom (which is determined by the span between the paddlers hands when arms are tight against the ribs and extended forward from the body).

The blade of the paddle is shaped from a roundish oval at the paddle root to a diamond shape at about the halfway point and finally to an elongated oval at the tip.
