This authentic Alaskan Native ulu knife was handcrafted by artist Leroy Barlip III. He Combines art and craftsmanship for a beautiful but useful tool. This knife features a handle made of a beautiful piece of walrus ivory that was found in the tundra near Nome, almost 6″ long. It comes with a nice base so you can display it in your kitchen when not in use. Leroy intends for these knives to be used, not just for decoration, but please….don’t put them in the dishwasher!
