Crooked Knife NEW 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 Many were originally made from old files, with the tang inserted into a carved wooden handle and secured with tightly wrapped with raw hide, wire or sinew, rivets or pins.
