This clever ulu shape is a modern twist on an ancient design made of slate, and it combines the best features of a knife and an ulu.  5 INCH (ACROSS) CUTTING SURFACE, IT IS A SMALL ULU THAT FITS IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND.

5″ X 2 3/4″


Uluit have been found that date back to as early as 2500 BCE. Traditionally, the ulu would be passed down from generation to generation. It was believed that an ancestor’s knowledge was contained within the ulu and thus would also be passed on.
The shape of the ulu ensures that the force is centered more over the middle of the blade than with an ordinary knife. This makes the ulu easier to use when cutting hard objects such as bone. Because the rocking motion used when cutting on a plate or board with an ulu pins down the food being cut, it is also easier to use an ulu one-handed (a typical steak knife, in contrast, requires a fork).
Ulu knives are sometimes used for purposes other than their original intent. Because of their cultural symbolism throughout the Arctic, they are sometimes presented to people who have accomplished significant things, such as sports or education.
