ULU IN BEAR FOREST KNIVES KIT
The kit is built around multi-functional ulu knife designed by On Three and made by Bear Forest Knives. Despite its small size, this knife has a significant cutting edge that can be used for various tasks, including woodworking, fire prep, and food or game processing. The Scandi grind of the blade makes it ideal for carving, while the curved shape allows for effortless skinning.
The 90-degree spine can also be used for scraping a ferro rod or processing tinder. Plus, with the ability to attach the knife to a split stick, you can easily convert it into a tomahawk-type tool that can aid in shelter construction or tackle larger projects.
The kit includes other important survival gear provided by Wazoo Gear. Everything in the kit fits into a plastic container measuring 4.92 x 3.35 x 1.38 inches.
