Please understand these are not requirements that we apply they are the manufacturer's requirements and in order for us to carry their line we must comply. MAP price on this item is $ 56.75Our Magnum Ulu should not be confused with the cheap "tourist" models commonly available in magazines and souvenir shops across Alaska. Our blades are handmade from American D-2 high carbon tool steel, individually hand ground, finished, and sharpened to a hair-splitting razor edge. Our heat treat process is a double draw method and then each blade is cryogenically treated so that the cutting edge is extremely sharp and stays that way even after extended use. Blades are hardened to a Rockwell of 58-60.
