European knives were among the earliest and most desirable items of trade. Women were quick to fashion and bead scabbards in tribal geometric or floral patterns. The women used knives in food preparation, tailoring of clothing, and making domestic wares. Beaded scabbards were tied with buckskin thongs to their belts.
