The handle of this ulu is made from a section of sun-bleached and polished caribou antler. Each year in late autumn, caribou shed their antlers, which lie on the tundra and are polished by the sun and wind. Comes with a stand made of polished caribou antler. Made in Alaska by B. Merry Studios. As both the handle and the stand are naturally occurring, each ulu will be unique and different!
