S. Djarv Hantverk Crooked Knife Blade - Large


Weight: 48 g         24 reviews
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.

  • Total length: 130 mm

  I am from Maniwaki Canada no problem with shipping excellent tracking. Most of all this Mocotaugan (Crooked Knife) is awesome. I Love it!

  It's funny that even when you know it is not going to come with a handle it's still surprising when it's just a blade in a bag. Having said that having put a handle on it and used it for a few hours I can say it's a really good blade, sharpens easily and cuts well. I'm already half way through carving my first spoon.

  Excellent piece of kit, I had similar knives like this before but never realised how bad they are compared to this. It looks and feels hand made, it feels like something that will last a lifetime. Holds a good edge for much longer than the other crook knives I have tried. Handles are easily made on the fly so it saves some space in the pack which is also a plus!

  The quality of the blade is premium. I look forward to making a handle for it. It is not only a tool but a bushcraft project as well. Brilliant.

  Really nice, I enjoyed making my own handle. I have bought both blades and made my own leather sheaths as well. Both items are to cherish for life. Big thank you for both. I also bought two knives 15 years ago and both are like brand new even though they have been used well.

  This is the second such blade that I've ordered from Woodlore. I'm happy to say that the quality remains consistently excellent, which helps buying with confidence. I've been setting these blades to mocotaugan handles based on the design shown on the site. The result it comfortable to work with and pleasing to the eye.

  I was excited to put a handle to this blade, in the process I got to know it better. The blade is relatively thick, which gives it a pleasing heft, with no give or bend. The tang is precisely uniform in thickness and width, which helped in fitting the tang in the handle so that it remains snug and secure.
