Ulu are a part of Alaskan history and you can not only see them being made, you can buy one and if you need it shipped they will do this also. Ask them any questions and they will answer them.

Not only do they have the Ulu knife, which is a very cool item, but they have many other souvenirs. I got some Smoked Salmon in a package, magnets, jewelry and other items.

We stopped by on Saturday so the plant was not in production. There were lots of different choices to purchase. We enjoyed the videos about the Ulu knife. The "seconds" we purchased turned out to be okay. The large bowl had only a small flaw...More
