  1. I make uluks back hime in Inukjuak, northern Quebec. I had a shipping container that I converted into a workshop and was able to produce decent pieces. In early fall of 2018, I moved to Montreal to become a business student. City life is tough and I miss working on pieces. If I can chat with someone from Montreal, that would help. Here was my last work back home.
  2. For steel, I have some leaf springs from an old truck, and recently got some broken farrier's rasps from my brother. The pieces are anywhere from 3 inches to a foot long. So I have nice flat bars to work with, and I can figure out how to hammer on the edge side to curve the blade, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to bring the sides up for the handle. For limitations: I can't forge weld yet (okay, I managed to weld a single spot a year ago, but I'm burning furnace coal, so getting the heat up high enough is tough), but other than that, I can shape steel. This is an idea I had, but I don't know how practical it is: I'm open to advice on the design as well. It was just an idea I drew in my journal.
  3. Hi All, Today I have for sale a knife I just finished up. I am calling it a hunting Ulu but I am open to suggestions. This one is extremely comfortable in the hand with your thumb on the non-slip groves. The ergonomics turned out great. The Specifics: Steel is 3/16ths 1095 hardened to a Rockwell of 58-60 Not quite a mirror finish. Length 6.5 inches Maximum height of blade is 2 inches Blade length from scale to tip is 2.75 inches, hair popping sharp. Scales are made from Andiroba and three 3/16ths brass pins. Price including shipping and a Kydex belt sheath is $ $75.00 Thanks for looking, Ken
  4. Hi All, Today something very different, I got some of Aldo’s 1095 in 3.5 inch width. What to do with it? Obvious answer, after a lot of thinking, make an Ulu. What’s an Ulu you say? It’s a traditional Inuit knife used for fleshing out a seal or in the warmer climate chopping vegetables or any thing else for that matter. So this is my modern take on a traditional knife. The Particulars: Steel: 3/16ths 1095 to a hardness of 58-59 Length of cutting edge: 5.25 inches, slightly convex at the base sharp around the corners to about 1 1/8 inch high on the sides. Grind is hollow on a 10-inch wheel, very sharp. Height from the base of the edge to the top of the handle is 3.25 inches Handle material is Corian with 4 1/8 inch brass pins Finish: Mirror Weight is 11.5 oz Price shipped to the lower 48 including shipping is $145.00 if you want a Kydex belt sheath for it add another $15.00. It will sit blade down in the sheath. Thanks for looking, Ken
