 Handmade Ulus

We recover carbon steels. Power our shop with the sun. We take time to build and create tools with art and soul.

We build working ulus that will last generations.

The ulu knife is an ancient tool. A  traditional Inuit Woman's knife design some 4,500 year old. A primitive tool for a kitchen, a camp, on a hike or in a bushcraft, survival or hunting kit. For slicing,  jerky,  filleting,  chopping and mincing in a unique and efficient way or as a head knife for leather work. As a hunting tool, the ulu is the ultimate skinning knife , a great tool for your kit.  Tools and designs that are proven by people who live in the harshest conditions on earth. We feel priveledged to make these tools. Please read a customer's  Bushcraft Tools Review

.Take a look at the galleries if you see something you like, if you have an ulu in mind you can email us we'll work with you and make you an ulu. You may pick a blade style and handle style. Send us the picture numbers.
Irregular antler handle shapes fit snugly in your hand giving you a firm grip allowing you to have more control and power in cuts and slicing. If you prefer the warmth of wood you would have a choice of wood type from our stock .
We seal and stabilize moose, deer and elk antler and wood. All our ulus are balanced at the neck and guaranteed to keep a tough and strong razor's edge.

Aki makes the sheaths by hand out of 8 oz. saddle leather and handstitches saddle stitch with a filet sandwitched between the front and back pieces of leather protecting the stitch from the very sharp ulu edge for a tough and lasting knife sheath, custom fit. 
The original designs on the face of the sheaths are hand drawn and tooled by Aki. You can request a custom motif.

We've lived in the bush in central British Columbia since 1997. We live in a small cabin, have a small shop powered by solar energy,  grow our own food and strive to leave a light footprint.

We've recovered L6 and 15N20 high carbon steel lumber mill saw blades. After we cut, shape and finish the ulu blades they are hardened  and differentially tempered. The blades and stems are tough and strong.  The blades hold a razor edge creating a high quality kitchen tool, hunting and bushcraft utlility tool. For the backcountry or your workbench, it is an indespensible knife.
Thicknesses vary between a thin 1mm to 5mm.

Ulus are a fine food preperation tool. Examples of knife blocks made from fruit tree knots and limbs that sit on your counter top.
