An ulu (ᐅᓗ) on the beach.
Uluit are the traditional women’s knives of the Yup’ik, Inuit and Aleut women. They are amazing because they’ve been used for thousands of years (including up to the present) and because they are utilized in a variety of tasks. They are basically a woman’s swiss army knife! This particular ulu is made of ground slate and was discovered while beach combing, and must have been dislodged by eroding, river-side archaeological sites.
