Alaskan Ulus

Dating back to 2500 BC, an ulu is an all-purpose knife traditionally used by Inuit, Yup’ik and Aleut women. These versatile knives were used in everything from skinning and cleaning animals, cutting a child’s hair, cutting food and, if necessary, trimming blocks of snow and ice used to build an igloo.

These ulus, individually handmade by owner Mark Knapp, are both practical and beautiful. Choose from a variety of handles made from laminated sheep horn, musk ox horn, moose antler, fossil ivory or exotic wood each distinctly different and each with a matching stand.
