Ulu KnifeThe ulu knife was used to cut whale blubber and meat, butcher salmon and even used to cut children’s hair. There were many styles from different regions. The slate ulu dates to prehistoric times before much metal was used. The slate blade is set in a wood handle with hide glue or pine pitch.

These are usable on meat but not hard items such as wood or bone. Please do not try to cut your children’s hair!
