Sale for one Mocotaugan Crooked Knife (Right Handed Knifes
First introduced in Sheffield, England, crooked knives were sold by traders such as the Northwest Company as early as 1720. In North-eastern America, this style of tool was much used by the first nations of that region to fashion everything from canoe paddles to snowshoes also used in carving items ranging from baskets to bowls and spoons to canoes and totem poles, weapons etc, these knives are one of the handiest tools ever invented. Many were originally made from old files, with the tang inserted into a carved wooden handle and secured with tightly wrapped with raw hide, wire or sinew, rivets or pins.

Originally Knives made were custom foreign produced for Both the Native American and Buckskinner trade in the Old Days, than in the late 1700s the Custom American made Mocotaugan Crooked Knife was a common everyday Tool, these knives are one of the handiest tools ever invented.

Our Mocotaugan Crooked Knife Features Fancy Hand Carved Handles are made from Walnut Elm Cherry Maple and other HARDWOODS) with (PEWTER BOLSTERS) and (BRASS PINS). 9" in length with a (4" High Carbon Steel Blade) that has partial carbon removed from both sides of the blade to ensure one side of the blade only to be sharpened with ease to ensure a MICRO EDGE.

All of my items are handmade & many of them are truly one of a kind which means that no two are exactly alike.

Because each one of my items are handcrafted one at a time, no two are 100% identical. I consider my items as art forms made in the centuries old ways which means there may be natural variations that one might consider a flaw but are actually inherent in the making of the piece, just as they were centuries ago. My items are created exactly as they were centuries ago. We might look at a piece from centuries ago may it be a drum, war club, knife, pipe, necklace, etc & think it's not perfect but actually it is, it's the hand crafted nature & techniques that the Native Americans used & which I use today with pride, skill & confidence.

First off I’m grateful for the knife, Thankyou. For the price though, it’s not well made - and I would definitely not buy it again. It came extremely dull. I have sharpened it but because there was no edge to begin with it’s quite difficult to get it sharp. The blade is not beveled. Instead of one side being flat, both have been grounded down. This is why I asked before hand, is this a one handed crooked knife? But if it’s not beveled then NO it is not. The blade is too short at 4 inches - 5 or 6 inches is much more appropriate. The curved part is more of a 90degree angle than a smooth curve for carving.

I haven’t gotten to use it but it looks beautiful. I thank you for this beautiful piece.

Thank you, the crooked knife was perfect, and arrived quickly. It looks beautiful, a little small for my large hands. A very difficult to find item, it sharpened up nicely and I can't wait to make a canoe paddle with it.
