  The ULU Factory
by kaloz

Many visitors to Alaska want an ULU which is a rounded blade with a handle used in food preparation. You will see them on display at most gift shops, and they can range from basic models to fancy art work with carved handles. Many of the gift shops carry ULUs made at the ULU factory. So why not just go there and pick out the one that you like.

What to buy: Buy an ULU. They come in many price ranges and have a cutting bowl. But beware: You can not take these on the airplane. It is best to ship them home. They come in a convienent shipping box with "From" and "To" areas lined waiting for your addresses.

They also have other gifts, including "Yummy Chummies" or pet treats made from Salmon.

The ULU Factory is located near Ship Creek which was the original townsite of Anchorage.

What to pay: They start at $20 and go from there.
