Eagle River Knife Co was started by Ted and Carol Bodley. Ted Bodley Sr was the founder of Mohawk Petroleum Co in Tulsa, OK. but Ted Jr left the family business in 1996 to start a new life in Eagle River, AK.

The Bodleys sold knives for a small company while Ted fine tuned his own designs until finally Eagle River Knives became his full time job. Bodley, an avid fisherman and cook, also made cooking knives and introduced his own line of spices and seasonings.  In 2001, their daughter Jeanine joined the business. Ted passed away in 2012, and ever since Eagle River knives have been made by this mother/daughter team.

This ulu, the original Alaska Native knife, features a blade made with a special alloy of semi-stainless steel formulated to hold a superior edge with little effort.  The efficient curve of the blade that was perfected centuries ago in slate is the one used here in steel and the handle is carved from found moose antler with a sturdy grip. Each one is unique, these photos are representative of the workmanship and range of our collection. We are happy to provide more specifics or additional photos before your purchase.

Each ulu comes with a antler stand to show off its beauty and safely store it while not in use. Leather sheaths are available separately.

Be sure to dry the blade after use and oil from time to time to reduce oxidation on the high carbon steel.
