Alaska Ulu Knives
The ULU knife (pronounced ooloo) is the most renowned knife in Alaska. Native people of northern Alaska invented this knife centuries ago. It is used for hunting, fishing, skinning, filleting and every other imaginable domestic cutting need by the Inuit (Eskimo) people.

The traditional ULU was an Alaskan Native cutting tool with a handle made of wood or bone and stone slate blade, with a sharp edge for cutting or carving. The Native Alaskans made them in all sizes, from a small blade for cutting skins to a cleaver for carving meat. But, today's version is manufactured from stainless steel and provided with a hardwood handle for ease of use.

Inupiat Style Cultured Moose Antler

We made a master pattern from an actual moose antler and reproduced these natural looking handles using silicone molds and polyester resin. Hand-staining and finishing bring put the very natural looking tones. It's hard to tell it from the real thing.

ULU Sharpener Item#: USS   $9.99 Each
Originally designed for use on ice augers, we have found this handy tool to be great for sharpening Ulus. Of course, a hard stone or round steel works well, but with this little gadget, it's easy to keep a sharp edge. Always use care when sharpening an Ulu or any other knife. Carefully follow the instructions included.
