It's nice walk down near the Anchorage train station. The Ulu knife shop and factory provide some insite into these very popular knives. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and your knife purchase can be mailed to you back in the lower 48.

Brought three friends here from Washington and Arizona and they really enjoyed watching the Ulu knives being made right there in front of them. Of course they all bought many items to bring back with them as gifts.

If you need or want an ulu, this is the place to go. Last visit was the best because they were hard at work making ulu's.

In addition to ulu knives and bowls, which I've used for years, there are teas, coffee, jewelry selections and more. There was a dog sled in front for photographs

A lot of information to be had here. Learn how Ulu knives are made and watch them make the cutting boards.
