This interesting Ulu shaped pocket knife is about 2 3/4″ long when folded and just over 4 1/2 when open. The handle is made of fossil walrus oosik (the male walrus penis bone) this is a beautiful and very durable material found along the northwest coast of Alaska. It is designed and made here in Anchorage by Alaskan knife maker, Bob Merry.
Bob and his family have been carving and making knives in Alaska for over 30 years. Each year he spends a month or more in the Arctic wilderness collecting naturally shed antler for his knife handles and carvings. He gets mammoth bone from miners, and artifacts and other materials from hunters that find them while in the back country.
Because this knife is made of natural material, the grain and color will vary.
