Hooks for Hanging Antique Oars and Boat Paddles
Does your love of boating stop as soon as you leave the dock?
For those of us who care deeply about our lifestyles and hobbies, that passion never stops.
If you’re like us, you like taking that passion back home with you and putting it on display.
Made to Last a Lifetime
At Brown County Forge, we hammer each oar hook out of steel using traditional tools. Each hook is made to fit closely to your boat paddle or oar’s measurements.
About Our Shop
Terran Marks, the blacksmith at Brown County Forge, is dedicated to making hardware that lasts but also looks good.
He started working with hot metal in 2011 and hasn’t looked back since.
He sells his custom hooks and home hardware across the United States and around the world.
You can find him in his shop in Bloomington, Indiana swinging hammers and teaching people how to blacksmith.
An avid outdoorsman, when he’s not in the shop, he’s either hiking in the woods or out on the water.
Our Custom Oar Hooks
How our hooks start out :
- 3-1/2 inches tall from the bottom of the hook bend to the top of the hook.
- Feature a hammered texture for an heirloom look.
- They come in these hook widths: 1.5-inch, 2-inch, 2.5-inch, 3-inch (Send us your measurements if your oar might be wider. See “Next Steps” below.)
- $49 per pair (+tax) and guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Take some measurements of your oar or paddle at the two spots you want the hooks to be.
This can be a circumference (all the way around) measurement or a thickness (diameter) measurement.
Round up to the next half inch.
For example, if your oar is 5 3/8″ around like the one below, your diameter is 1.71 inches.
This means your oar hooks should be 2 inches wide.
