What a fun place! Of course, you can shop for a HUGE variety of ulu knives including many which are true works of art. But you can also watch on both "ends" of the store the factory where they are making them. There are windows into the factory from inside the store and different parts of the manufacturing process happen at each window so be sure and check them both out. And be sure when you are shopping (even if not here), that you shop for one of the originals that are made here. Some in other shops are imported fakes from China.

I sure hope that I used the proper plural form for "ulu." We arrived late in the day, but one worker hung around to finish an ulu. They aren't making ulus, the sales staff will demonstrate their product, so it helps to bring an appetite. Prices here seemed a bit lower than in the gift shops elsewhere, and they shipped to the lower 48 at a competitive rate.

AT first glance you enter what seems to be tourist trap selling souvenirs. But someone greets you as you enter and directs you to watch the making of certain Ulu objects of interest. You can hear and or watch on video, the Ulu history. Very informative.
