“Nice Tourist Spot!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

This is a nice place to stop in and see how the ulu's are made. You can see them being made through windows inside the store. They will also ship the item home for you. We stopped in prior to getting on our cruise and really enjoyed it. I noticed while in other ports that most stores sell the ulu, but they were often higher priced and not an original. If you intend to purchase I would do it from the factory store due to the quality. They also sell other souvenir items.

“souvenirs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The factory is a good place to visit to see all the different kinds of knives made. You can get a good deal on an Ulu here, as well and things like jewelry, books, jams, videos, dolls, and crafts.

“Another tourist spot with very friendly employees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

During the winter, the folks at The Ulu Factory were just as welcoming as in the summer. You can actually see the ulus being made, and of course, they are for sale at a reasonable price. Their two dogs behind the counter would put their paws up on the counter....adorable! Clean bathrooms even if you don't buy anything.

“Shop and learn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

Staff was very informative on the ulu product. You could watch staff make bowls and package ulu knives. Free shuttle with very entertaining driver from visitor center to factory and back. Worth the visit and I love my ulu knife and bowl!
