Ebony Ivory Ulu               

 

Ebony Ivory Ulu @2011 Michael H. Mara

This Ulu* has a curved, flat ground, 440C blade, hardened to HRC 58, with a chisel point edge grind, and a hand-rubbed semi-mirror finish. The handle is Ebony and Ivory laminated together, with three mosaic pins. The Ulu is 5-1/4" wide by 4-7/8" tall.  $284. SOLD

*The Ulu is an Eskimo (Inuit) design, used for butchering game, food preparation, skinning, and eating, dating anywhere from 5000 years old to much older. This highly functional design evolved over millennia, and has been found in archaeological sites, made from bone, stone, and ivory, pre-dating the Iron Age. It's quite nimble in the hand, and on a cutting board, does a fair imitation of a human-powered Cuisinart.
