Inuit, Alaska. 1875-1900. The rounded blade of a woman’s knife made it useful for almost every job from chopping ice to skinning game. Before European contact, ulu’s were made of ground slate, the same material of which chalk boards used to be made. Slate was the only rock available in the area that was useful for such purposes.
