It’s said that necessity is the mother of invention, and the legendary Ulu knife is an excellent case in point. Once dependent on their own industrious creativity for daily survival, indigenous peoples of the Arctic region are widely known for the rudimentary yet incredibly useful tools they crafted from rock and bone. So ingenious were many of these natives’ essential designs that they’re still in use today. Though the fortunate advent of modern materials has refined it, the Ulu knife remains as versatile, valuable, and in-demand as it ever was.
