Airport Restrictions

Only in Alaska would a list of prohibited items at the airport include ulus.

 

Traditionally, ulus were cutting implements that were known for being a woman's tool. Ulus were also originally made from ground stone like slate with a caribou antler handle.

 

Today, many of the ulus geared toward the sale to tourists are made with stainless steel blades and have a wood handle.
