We designed the Moose knife as a tool for the bush. We tested the original on many extended trips into the boreal forest here, used it as the main tool and built a 10 x 20' greenhouse from fir saplings, peeled and notched, batoning, drawing and chopping. When we were finished it still had a razor edge. We've field dressed, skinned and quartered a few moose with it. It performed exceptionally.
The Moose knife has a 7 inch blade, 5/16 inch spine, a piece of chainsaw bar guard, ironwood and copper inserts and moose antler scales.
The sheath is double saddle stitched by hand re-enforced with copper rivets.
A braided lanyard on the sheath will allow one to secure the ulu to a backpack or belt.

We make all our edge tools and knife blades from quality steel we recover. Saw blades mainly from local mills. We hand forge and differentially temper each blade, custom make and handstitch our scabbards. Each knife is original and one of a kind. We live off the grid in isolation on the edge of the Chilcotin Plateau in the boreal forest of B.C.. Our shop is powered by energy from the sun. We use the tools we make. Tried, true and tested. All our knives carry a lifetime guarantee..
We weld a lumber mill headsaw- tooth to the end of the knife's tang creating a hammer head. We've left the carbide tooth on the insert as a striker. The tooth is from a headsaw, 6 feet in diameter
