Ulu: The Inuit woman's knife, the ulu, is made up of a handle and blade, both transverse. The handle can consist of one to three pieces. The one-piece grip is the simplest, where the blade is set directly into the handle, a form often found in the Western Arctic. A two-piece handle has a stem, called a tang, between the grip and the blade. The three-piece has an intermediate part between tang and blade. The blade can be shallow to deep and of different widths.
