Tradition and Uses
Uluit (plural of ulu) date back as early as 2500 BCE within the Inuit culture. As part of tradition, the Ulu is typically passed down from one generation to the next. It was believed that an ancestor’s knowledge was retained in the ulu and would also be passed on to the new recipient. Essentially, the Ulu is an all-purpose knife used for diverse applications such as in the skinning and cleaning of animals, and even in the construction of igloos.
Design & Functionality
The Ulu’s shape ensures that force is centered across the middle of the blade, offering increased cutting power.. Rocking the knife pins down the object further demonstrates the Ulu’s ability to quickly and easily cut. Additionally, it provides an easier approach when using a knife with only one hand.
