(One of the Medieval Kitchen Knives series of unique, ancient looking, high performance chef's knives)

This ergonomic, eccentrically shaped Ulu* style knife has a strong but flexible 6" long blade of 1/16" L6 steel, forged to shape, and hardened to HRC58, with an as-forged finish. The knife is 4" tall and has full tang construction for strength, with Cocobolo scales with three 3/16" Brass pins. $243 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.
