Through eons of time, man has made his tools from stone. From simple bone smashing hand held choppers (for acquiring bone marrow) to more elaborate fluted clovis spear and atlatl points to more modern arrowheads. Any type of stone was used that could be managed into a desirable size and shape and have a sharp edge. Jasper, agate, flint, and basalt are just a few of these materials. The most prized of materials for prehistoric stone tool development was the volcanic glass known as obsidian. Obsidian from the Western United States has been found in the shape of prehistoric artifacts across much of the North American continent.

The ulu knife was traditionally used by Inuit, Yupik, and Aleut women as an all purpose knife. It is still preferred by many Alaskans today!
