Further Information

This Large Crooked Knife Blade, as used by Ray in his Northern Wilderness series, functions as a one-handed drawknife and gouge. 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. Woodlore are pleased to now sell this resurrected knife blade without a handle, allowing you to finish the tool to your own liking.

Each Crooked Knife Blades has been professionally hand-forged from high carbon steel by Svante, the blacksmith behind Swedish company S. Djarv Hantverk. This tool is made to the same exceptionally high standards as their traditional Spoon Knives.

Each blade comes ready to be inserted into a handle of your own choosing, allowing you to produce a finished tool that is truly unique. The final design of your handle is obviously down to you, but we've included the photos shown here to give you an idea of how it can be done. This style of finished knife can also be seen in Ray's Bushcraft and Essential Bushcraft books.

Details:

  • Total length: 130 mm
  • Blade width: 15 mm at base, tapering down to 8 mm at the tip
  • Thickness: 3 mm

  There is no beating quality, superb steel made with love and experience giving a tool you know will give lots of service. Plus you have to make your own handle, now there's another learning curve. I love it.

  I handled this blade in rosewood, trying to mimic a Mocotaugan style. Like all Svante Djarv kit it is a quality item. However, functionally the blade needs to be angled in two planes in relation to the tang. This would greatly improve handling. The blade could also be thinner. Fit a long handle if you will do any larger work (bowls, etc.) as this allows a powerful, lever-stroke using a two-handed grip.

  Nice sturdy blade, looks great on the curved arctic birch handle I've made for it. Good quality example of a hard to get traditional tool. Works well on green or seasoned wood, just what you'd expect from a good quality maker.
