Ulu Knife with Maple Handle
+ $ shipping surcharge
This knife rocks.
Inspired by the traditional ulu knives of the Alaskan Inuit, Yupik, and Aleut tribes, this curved knife can do pretty much anything. Its original uses included tasks like skinning and cleaning fish and meat, chopping vegetables, and cutting children’s hair—and that’s (mostly) what we like to use it for... though especially for dicing, chopping, and mincing (and less for hair-cutting). The unique shape of the blade and the pale maple handle make a striking addition to any kitchen knife collection.
