They have been making their knives in Alaska since the 1990’s to share the history and functionality of this special one-handed knife, that was historically the exclusive tool used by the Native Alaskan Inuit people for thousands of years. This knife is an all-around utility utensil for skinning, chopping, cutting and slicing.
