Bought an authentic handmade Alaskan Ulu!
« on: February 04, 2018, 06:57:06 am »
I've wanted an authentic vintage style Ulu for a long time. When I was in Alaska I didn't see any that I wanted. I didn't have much time in Ketchikan where I'm sure there Ulu's for tourists with a big moose antler handle and a picture of a bear or a salmon on it, I wanted one that would actually be used by the First Nations people. I ran across this video and quickly bought the Ulu they were selling. It's exactly what I've been looking for. It's handmade from a saw blade by an Alaskan. I'm excited about it!

    You peaked my interest. Showed it to the wife. She said get one. Sold out!
    That’s my luck.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Yeah, Dave Whipple only made 20 of them and they sold out in a few hours. I'm sure that was a lot of work!

    I have an old two man five foot crosscut saw I found in a dump in Louisiana that would make a sack full of Ulu's but I lack the tools to make them.
