I received an Alaskan bowl and ulu set as a gift several years ago. My ulu blade is engraved with the outline of the state of Alaska, and flowers are beautifully woodburned onto the bowl and ulu handle. It has become my favorite for fine chopping, especially herbs. The rolling motion of the ulu keeps the herbs in their pile while mincing them nicely. The design of the ulu allows you to keep fingers clear of the blade – a great choice for children or people like myself who tend to be a bit clumsy with blades.
