NOW FOR A LITTLE BIT OF REAL HISTORY OF THE TOE PINCHER COFFIN!
The term toe pincher was used back in the old days simply because its a tight fit and your toes pointed together to make you fit, that and back then they would break and bend you how ever they needed to get you crammed into one of these coffins, just be thankful you can order one now with extra space before Halloween!
Many places were prone to flooding, often the cemeteries would be filled with coffins that had floated to the surface due to soggy ground.
The wedge shape and heavier top end design was less likely to float than a simple box square coffin.
Yes, the term toe pincher was used back in the olden days because it truly was a tight fit and your toes pointed together to make you fit.
While it's much easier to make a squared box than the toe pincher design the amount of wood used is way less on the toe pincher casket design verses the old common squared box coffin style.
Another reason for the popularity of the toe pincher coffin style was that it was very easy to indicate which end was the head and which was the foot verses the simple square design which was near impossible to tell.
The toe pincher coffin was originally a early European design that was adopted and when brought to the US later done away with for the most part due to the labor cost / time of making them even though less wood was used as the wood conformed more to the body.
In a several instances in the civil war the toe pincher was used because it kept the cost of wood down this was specially true with forced labor since the labor was free and wood was not.
At one time during the late 1800's the toe pincher coffin design was even marketed by furniture stores like Sears and Roebuck.
