cut onions with ulu

History lesson for the day: The Alaskan ULU (OO-loo) is an extremely versatile cutting tool crafted by the Native Alaskan people over five thousand years ago. Because the center of force is concentrated directly over the middle of the blade, it creates twice the direct downward force compared to that of conventional cutlery (where the force is behind the center of the blade). [demo]
excerpt from www.ulu.com

In “dena speak” it means one hell of a sharp knife that makes cutting, chopping, slicing and dicing a breeze. My mom brought me back my ulu knife from her Alaskian adventure last year but you can get one of your very own sans traveling at www.ulu.com.
