Alaskan Ulu knife is a simple small fixed-blade knife configured for excellent control and precision cuts. It can handle most of the tasks like cutting vegetables, meat, and skinning. It has a large enough choil to become a complete finger groove.
Ulu is a traditional knife of the native Arctic tribe women. Historically, they used it for cleaning and filleting fish, skinning and butchering game, and prepare a meal. A classic ulu knife consists of a crescent-shaped cutting edge with a handle directly over the blade.
When using this knife, rather than taking advantage of that extended handle in a chopping motion as I might with a cleaver. The overall grip allowed to rock that crescent edge back and forth when cutting.
Alaskan Ulu knives come with a genuine heavy-duty leather sheath and 30 days moneyback guarantee.

Damascus steel has a higher content of carbon which gives it a long-lasting edge. However, the carbon makes it susceptible to rust when it is subjected to moisture.
Proper Care Tips:
- Do not store knives in the leather sheath/leather roll for long periods of time.
- After use, wash in warm soapy water and dry immediately.
- Use cooking oil to coat the blade before storing.
If rust appears, rub the blade with a metal polish or a very fine steel wool, then oil the blade.
Damascus knives take a little more care, but their sharp, long-lasting edge and great feel will last you many years to come.
