Ulu Dawn .

 A Neo-tribal style Ulu knife I made up for a very good customer in the US who had grown up in Alaska .

 The blade is recycled high carbon saw blade steel with forge finish and has a Nessmuk style tip one end and a more pointed drop point at the other .

The handle is Red deer stag antler from the herd I used to look after , the cut ends have been sealed with copper dust / epoxy mix .

The pins are square head copper boat nails , scavenged from an old wreck on the Jurassic coast and the tang has been wrapped in 3 strand braided sinew .

I made myself up an axe ring to carry my viking inspired  Peeledmouse belt axe in https://www.instagram.com/peeledmouseaxes/

The large brass ring was scavenged from a shipwreck found on the Jurassic coast probably some sort of boat mooring ring and its been well battered by the sea and the elements .

The leather belt loop is 4mm veg tan double dyed after the pyrography was added with a brass eyelet added which is then secured to the added copper locking ring by 3 strand braided sinew .

Ulu masked .

4mm veg tan wet formed leather rustic ulu mask .

The one piece leather sheath was distressed on the workshop floor and indented using a gnarly stag antler before being sponge dyed with dark and light brown dye for an aged effect .

Hammered copper saddlery rivets and antiqued brass kydex eyelets were used so the owner can mount it to his pack whilst hunting . The sheath was then stonewashed with marbles in a tumble drier to complete the aged look .

  The drop point tip of the Ulu fits snug under the last brass eyelet to aid in retention  so the ulu must be pivoted to draw from the sheath .

Secondary retention comes in the form of a braided latigo lace thong with twisted copper wire and a Nepalese ox bone skull mantra bead .

For most of the summer I was carrying and testing out my Nessmuk cleaver in a factory made CB molle sheath until I got around to making up a kydex sheath for it .

I added a molle kifaru GPS pouch to the front which held a basic FAK , LM multi tool ,  main and back up torch / batteries , CF Go tube , technora cord ,whistle and fire-steel / tungsten striker .

Or could add x2 single stack pouch’s to the front to carry a larger x2 CRI23 torch and my Spyderco Manix .

Its slightly smaller over all from the original and is designed to fit specifically in my kifaru E&E and Claymore packs as my go to camp / trail knife .

 Nessmuk styled tip and cleaver influenced with a dash of parang thrown in for good measure there will be testing shots to follow soon .
