Of souvenir, that is.
One of the most popular souvenirs of Alaska is an Ulu knife.
Here's a typical souvenir, not sure where Mrs. Drang got it; she had it when we met. It's actually made of okay steel, but may well have come from A Las Ka, PRC. This is in the Savoonga style.An ulu (Inuktitut syllabics: ᐅᓗ, plural: uluit, English: "woman's knife") is an all-purpose knife traditionally used by Eskimo women, both Yupik and Inuit. It is utilized in applications as diverse as skinning and cleaning animals, cutting a child's hair, cutting food and, if necessary, trimming blocks of snow and ice used to build an igloo.(Wikipedia, at link above)
This one is Mrs. Drang's souvenir Ulu, a Nunavak style, I believe:
In the same building was a small souvenir store that took a lot of our money, including for the bar of soap I posted about last week, and a nifty necktie with Northwest Native-style wolves on it.
Bristol Bay pattern Ulu, blade of old carbon steel saw blade.
I don't have a walrus or polar bear to butcher, but Mrs. Drang did ask me to shred some cabbage for slaw... Outdoors magazine: The Ulu Knife (.Pdf.)
