Description

Ancient ulu blades were usually made of slate. The handles were made of bone, wood, ivory or antler, and often became works of art in the hands of skilled carvers. Ulus were used for cutting meat, splitting hides, and making clothing. The materials have changed, but the semicircular design that made the ulu so versatile and easy has endured. Even today, many Alaskans prefer the ulu for its efficiency and ease of use.

Wayne Hunt is from Copper River, Alaska and has handcrafted this ulu using Diamond Willow for the handle and stand. The blade is 6 inches and made with 440 US stainless steel. Each piece is a one of a kind work of art and will have unique characteristics in the wood of the handle and stand. Use your ulu to chop and trim meats, skin, cut and fillet fish, chop vegetables, and slice pizza. Use your imagination!
Made in Alaska.
