    Been wanting to try an Ulu for a few years now and it seems a good follow on from me trying the north American Indian Carving tools
    As usual ive started close to an existing old pattern before thinking of any drastic changes ive also gone for one you cant put your fingers thru so it cant be called a Knuckle duster or a T bar style so it cant be called a punch dagger :rolleyes:


    I used approx size of the large ones I saw which is fairly big :D


    5" high 7 3/4" wide and just under 10" cutting edge 52100 bearing steel 2mm thick full flat to convex edge.

    Carbon Fiber scales with orange G10 liners and Nickle silver Tubes

    and cos its me I had to do some smaller scale versions med and small


    for some reason i want to mount to large ones on a handle as a double head axe :pirate:

    heres the small one maybe good for sewing kit and skinning small game ???


    2.5" high just under 4" wide and jsut under 5" cutting edge

    i personally feel that it'd be ever so rude not to :)

    i like the look of the little one, as you suggest, i think it'd make a great addition to a sewing kit. as for the larger style of ulu for food prep......does no-one carry an axe anymore? GB SFA is one of the best herb choppers around :lmao:

    They're really nice!! Medium and a small if you're taking orders - blade & sheath only & I'll have a play with some plum wood (would use laburnum but not sure about it with food).

    Are these available to buy? What a great looking blade - I'd be interested in a medium and a small also!
