Alaskan Ulus and Primitive Knives

[content_block  bg_image=”” max_bg_width=”yes” bg_fixed=”yes” bg_position=”center top” bg_repeat=”repeat-y” parallax_scroll=”no” content_padding=”20px 0″ font_color=”#FFFFFF”]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 are individually handmade by Mark. They 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.

Our primitive knives are hand napped and built by Mark. We use a variety of handle materials; such as Pleistocene elk, camel and horse bone, ancient steppe bison rib bone and ancient caribou and elk antler, each distinctly different and each with a matching stand.
