This is our version of the Eskimo Ulu.  Knives of this type were used by the Northwest American Indians Tribes (Tlinget, Inuit, Inupiat) for skinning and rendering of whale and seal fat for cooking oil.  It has enjoyed a rising popularity lately for use as a vegetable chopper in fine cooking shops.  When combined with a wooden bowl, chefs rock this razor sharp knife back and forth and slice food with surprising speed.   Our Ulu is made from stainless steel with an optional leather wrapped handle. Please request leather wrapping when ordering. Bowl not included.

This German style chef's knife was custom made for chef in Indiana. The blade is approximately 10 inches long and the handle is approximately 5 inches. The pattern welded (Damascus) blade is made from 81 layers of wrought iron taken from a 1880s grainery in Superior Wisconsin and 1075 high carbon steel. The odd number of layers (81) comes from the fact that prior to the final fold, an extra layer of 1075 was added to the center to gaurantee the edge would be high carbon steel. The addition of the wrought iron ennsures that this blade will not break. The experimental profile of this blade is forged, rather than ground to shape. This means that the outer layer remained intact, hiding the damascus pattern. Only the center layer of 1075 is visible along the edge. The entire pattern can be made visible and acid etched if requested at the time of ordering. The handle is made from oiled rattan, but future handles will be made from reclaimed teak. Any special instructions must be agreed upon before work begins.

This piece requires a 4 month lead time.
