Crooked Knives, also known as Mocotaugan, are a common tool used by Native Americans of the Eastern Woodlands. It was an essential tool that was adapted by European settlers for their own uses. The handles have been formed into a variety of shapes and decorated with intricate designs. Author Ned Jalbert's book, Mocotaugan The Story and Art of the Crooked Knife: The Woodlands Indian's Indispensable Survival Tool, examines the history of these knives and the artform of making them.
