Loved seeing the making of these knifes and they are great Alaskan gifts for family and friends. They ship and are reasonably priced.

When in Anchorage, find the time to visit The Ulu Factory. TUF is unique in that it serves both as a working ulu factory as well as a gift shop. Watching the ulu knife being made is quite interesting since they are hand made products....More

It is a combination gift shop and ulu workshop. It is very Alaskan and is a must to get the full northern experience.

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.

This was an interesting experience. It is a small business that makes specialized knifes. They give you a complete tour. We enjoyed this with Alaska's Finest Tours, but you could go on your own.

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.

Stopped in here quickly to pick up a few ulu's for our family. Really enjoyed seeing everyone through the glass make the ulus. The are reasonable priced for an excellent made in Alaska souvenir. A must see if you have not been here before.

We took our family who were visiting to learn about ulu's. The staff was very informative and an interesting place to visit. They even went home with an ulu.
