Alaska Scrimshaw Antler Ulu

Sale price$149.00


The art of Scrimshaw dates back to the whaling days over 200 years ago.  Scrimshaw refers to the carvings or engravings done on antler, bone or ivory.  This nearly forgotten art is still being kept alive today in the same manner that it was in the past days of whaling to create these scrimshaw ulus. 

Old Time Distributors in Anchorage, Alaska, hand crafts each ulu from antler so that each is a unique piece of art. 

Actual ulu knives will vary from these photos as each piece of artwork and antler is unique. If desired we are happy to send photos of current stock--just ask!
