Since time immemorial, this singular knife, along with the axe and the maul, was one of the most essential survival tools of the First Peoples of the Woodlands. The mocotaugan (crooked knife) was a many-purpose tool, uniquely adapted to the Native man's life of hunting and gathering deep in the boreal forest. With its upturned tip, the knife could be used for cutting, carving, shaving, gouging and smoothing.
With great respect, this tribute is to honor the many fine craftsmen, past and present who've carried on the tradition of working with the 'Man's Knife'.
