  • The Ulu Factory is a fun stop, you can see Ulu's being made through big windows, and show for Alaskan and not so Alaskan gift items. Prices run a little high, but the rent isn't cheap :). While here, ...  more »
  • this is where the Ulu's are made. We had a nice sales person showing us around & ended up purchasing one. 
  • This was the best souvenir from Anchorage. I have enjoyed my Ulu and purchased a few for friends and family. It took me a few attempts to get use to using the Ulu but it sits on counter in wood stand ...  more »

  • We should have realized this was a bust when all of the men were sitting outside on the porch. All nearby parking was paid ($2 or $5, depending on the lot), no blades cut on site, mostly just assembling and laser engraving on the handle. Gift shop had all the same stuff you've seen in other gift shops. If are in Anchorage on a Saturday, skip Ulu and head to the outdoor market just up the hill -- that was much more interesting and well worth the paid parking.
  • Regular gift shop, nothing really special apart from glimpse of workers working on the knives. If you really love and adore the Ulu Knife, you should absolutely visit. Otherwise, you can safely skip this and won't miss much. The other perk of this place is perhaps that the knives are cheaper. Many other touristy place/ gift shops sells this too, and I recall seeing them charging $10 or more at other places, so if you are buying many of these knives, swing by! Probably a 10-15mins unlike what the many tourist book which estimated a 30-45 minute visit. There is a mini centerpiece which showcase artifacts of past ulu knives and how it have evolved over time. Other than the knives, they stock pretty much the same gift shop items as the other shops around town.
  • Really neat place. The staff is super helpful but never annoying. The knives are pretty cool as well, great for herbs and other things.
  • Fun Alaskana store close to downtown.
  • Neat place to go to while here. People are nice and it was neat to see them making knifes. Good prices on them. Cheaper than the ones at walmart in fairbanks.
