LARGE FRENCH KNIFE

150.00 179.99

This is the full size French knife with an antler handle and handsome brass rivets.  Ideal for mincing, slicing, and chopping vegetables, slicing meat, and even disjointing large cuts. Dancing Man knife blades resemble the ancient slate-side style preferred by the ancient people of Alaska.

Dancing Man knives and ulus have a unique story to tell! 

It begins with the design of each blade, shape and style. Each piece has been carefully crafted with the traditional construction of the indigenous Alaskan people as advised by Native Alaskan women.

Even more impressive, the blades are recycled steel cut from carpenters' handsaws, two-man crosscut saws, or bandsaw blades - most of them turn-of-the-century antiques used in the settling of the Last Frontier. Craftsmen prize this steel for its lightness, flexibility and ability to maintain a razor sharp edge. 

Maynard Linder (the Dancing Man) lives in Homer, Alaska and has been crafting authentic handmade ulus and knives since 1990.  Dancing Man knives and ulus are a one-of-a-kind Alaskan souvenir, linking the traditions of centuries with the people of today.

Leather sheaths and sharpeners can be bought separately on our website.
