Bone knife

Moose or caribou bone knife, bleached, not sharpened. The handle is decorated with strips of ocher and black suede, as well as a set of wood and bone carved in the shape of beads, the end of which is decorated with feathers of wild or farmed birds, as well as horsehair.

Knives with bone blades were otherwise used as everyday tools, as much for hunting, cutting meat, skinning and tanning hides, cleaning fish and repairing clothes or shoes, without the damage. Nowadays, these will only be used as a paper cutter, even if, in certain groups of natives, the bone knife will remain a very privileged tool.
