The Crooked Knife is a woodland Native American tool similar in use to a draw knife. It is held one-handed while the user's opposite hand grips the work-piece. With practice the crooked knife is a very efficient tool for accurately shaping wood without needing use of vises or other workholding devices.
This knife is most effective in green-wood, but can also be used for carving dry timber. crooked knives are predominantly meant for creating flat planes and gentle outside or inside curves. they do not cut the inside radii found in a spoon bowl, but may be found useful inside larger vessels.
