Here is Inuit tool presented as an artistic piece.
Very seldom have we seen an Ulu presented as a piece of exquisite art.
The question needs to be asked .... why not?
Ulus are a very common household tool that are used by Inuk women to clean fish and cut meat and seal blubber.
Essentially the Ulu is kin to our butcher knife.
This an ancient tool that has been in the Thule bloodline since the beginning of time.
Historically, this blade has meant the difference between life and death In the austere environment of the Arctic.
The blade is a new Stainless steel blade adorned with a blonde wood handle and holder.
This is a mesmerizing piece of art that will add mystery to your Inuit art collection.
