Cut & shaped to resemble an "Ulu" knife, which is an all-purpose knife traditionally used by Yup'ik, Inuit, and Aleut women of Alaska. The Ulu Knives were utilized in applications as diverse as skinning and cleaning animals, cutting a child's hair, cutting food and, if necessary, trimming blocks of snow and ice used to build an igloo. When the owner of the tool died, it was given to a family member or a close friend and was cherished and used with pride, passed down from one woman to another.
