An ulu (Inuktitut syllabics: ᐅᓗ, plural: uluit, English: woman's knife) is an Inuit all-purpose knife traditionally used by women. It is utilized in applications as diverse as skinning and cleaning animals, cutting a child's hair, cutting food and, if necessary, trimming blocks of snow and ice used to build an igloo.
