We make our hand made working ulus with moose or deer antler and hardwood handles. They can be fastened with either threaded brass or stainless steel pins. We focus on balance, aesthetics, utility and edge quality.
All the ulus we make are custom to order.
We recover all the highest quality materials to build the ulu's and take time to build them.
The sheaths are handmade and saddle stiched by hand.
We live in the bush and use only power from the sun through panels
Based on a Canadian arctic Inuit design, Aki and I make an ulu knife that becomes an extension of your hand. We sculpt each handle to fit comfortably.
We recover L6 and 15N20 high carbon steel lumber mill bandsaw blades. We cut, shape and finish the ulu blades. Then we harden and differentially temper the blades and stems creating tough and strong ulu blades, After we are done the blades hold a razor edge.
Ulus are great to work with in the kitchen or out in the bush preparing food.

These are working ulus that will last generations. We build them strong, tough and they keep their edge.
