A piece of wood would be chopped and carved into that shape, while at the tip a leg bone would be used. The leg bone would be boiled until it hardened. That way it couldn’t chip or break. It would be attached to the wood and used to remove any leftover meat. It was always made from the leg bone of the caribou and it was used to scrape moose hide. It is called a Pishkuchikin and it would last a good while.
