Nadlok and the Origin of the Copper Inuit

Man's knife

A man's knife was not strictly utilitarian like the women's knife or ulu. It was also used for fighting and often concealed by a suspension string within the sleave of hunters. Most have long undecorated handles and long copper or slate blades. The Nadlok knife may be the finest example of this type of artifact. Link: Knives and Adzes.
