The Alaskan ULU knife was first crafted by Native Alaskan residents over 5,000 years ago and was primarily used by Eskimo women for skinning and cleaning fish. Today people everywhere have discovered the versatility of this knife for slicing meats, dicing vegetables and a lot more. The knife’s rocking motion makes it extremely easy to use. Since the center of force is concentrated over the middle of the blade, it creates twice the downward force compared to conventional cutlery. Cleaning is a breeze; simply wash your WoodRiver® ULU by hand with soapy water in a downward motion from the handle, to avoid the sharp cutting edge, rinse thoroughly and towel dry. DO NOT SOAK IN WATER.


• Versatile and easy to use

• Constructed from 440C Stainless Steel; polished to a mirror finish

• Excellent for slicing, chopping, and dicing

• Center of force is concentrated over the middle of the blade

    Ulu knife

    I ordered two of these not knowing what to expect. very pleasantly surprised, with both the weight of the knife and the Quality. I had intended to use them for filling out some of my woodcraft at a local art fair I'm involved with, but now I might keep them and give them to my kids for christmas...

    if i only had the small fingers of a child !

    The blade is nice, sharp, graceful ... but assembly of the handle is impossible given the minute tolerances of the required holes and the tiny, tiny size of the screws. the angled torques that come with the blade are clumsy and useless. this design could be so greatly improved by making the holes in the blade larger and allowing for different fasteners. i ve purchased 3 blades; had what i thought were beginner's troubles with the first one, the second one was a bit easier, not great, and the third just went south into "forget it and come back to it" frustration. there are other knife blades on the market with larger holes that are much easier to work with. Caution: they may have a different radius. i will not buy one of these blades again, given there are alternatives.
