Had a great time shopping here. Watching them make the Ulu was pretty cool too. Clerks were very helpful and attentive.

Watching the demonstration about using hte Ulu was interesting. The factory was so simple and fun to see. The free shuttle to the factory was great and allowed us to walk to Ship Creek to watch the salmon running

Cool, quirky knife factory here. There are mass manufactured available or hand made options - suggest you check out the latter. They also ship your product for you (for a nominal charge).

This little shop is really cute and a great photo spot. We really liked that there is a free shuttle here from the little log cabin visitor's center. Also right behind the Ulu Factory is a large stream where you can see people catching salmon.

Cute little shop on Ships Creek. This store has a great selection of goodies to take home, or give as a gift. At this location, you can also walk along the riverbank and see fishermen, fish, and the dam.

Check out how ulu knives are made by looking the workers through windows into the shop area. Good selection of souvenirs.

Great knife to use for slicing and dicing. The store also has other items for sale. Shipping to anywhere at a reasonable price

The knives are interesting, but you can only see the factory in operation on weekdays - which we were not able to do. The free trolley transportation uptown is awesome! What a great service!

Good place to learn about ulu knives. It is mostly a store but informative sales folks. Right next to Ship creek where the salmon were running.
