The Ulu factory is a great place to visit and take some memories back home with you. Plus is right next to the train station, Ship Creek and the port.

Loved seeing the making of these knifes and they are great Alaskan gifts for family and friends. They ship and are reasonably priced.

Ulu are a part of Alaskan history and you can not only see them being made, you can buy one and if you need it shipped they will do this also. Ask them any questions and they will answer them.
