    The JULU or Johns ULU was designed by John Campbell and is modeled after the Alaskan ULU. This is a very useful cutting tool design that dates back to prehistory. The fist ULUs that have been found were made from stone and painstakingly knapped into their shape. While seemingly simple, this design took quite some time to develop the final product. It went through many changes throughout its time on the drawing board as well as a few different prototypes. After a few attempts of working with the design, it has arrived at what it is today. The JULU is a very compact and highly utilitarian blade. From cutting leather to scraping hides and raw plant matter for making cordage it has proven to be very useful in the field. This blade is also useful while in the kitchen or while preparing food at camp. The design is meant to also be held like a discoid blade making gutting and skinning a breeze.

    The Arizona Bushcraft JULU is a neck knife designed to be worn around the neck for everyday carry. It is also small enough to fit as an extra blade in just about any kit imaginable. By hafting the blade to a stick this can give you two options. The first is a small chopping tool useful for plants other small tasks. Second is a vertical handle allowing the blade to be used as a round knife or even a scraping tool for a myriad of uses. Don’t let its small size and round shape fool you, this is one useful tool to have on hand.

    The main idea behind the JULU is to be used as a discoid blade. This is the very first of the cutting tools and was used by primitive man hundreds of thousands or possibly even millions of years ago. This was, to them, their main tool. It was like a multi-tool or a utility blade that could be made on the spot when needed. From one core, you could get hundreds of razor sharp blades that could be used to process deer, elk, and even mammoths. This is the main idea behind the use and design of the JULU. Holding it in your hand, much like a stone flake brings the full utility of this blade to life. Even though the blade looks like an ulu, it is only an ulu in looks. Form and function, it is so much more. I have personally used this blade to make fireboards, cut and prepare spindles for friction fires, prepped wild edible plants, as well as harvesting bark and other materials for use in the field.

    I have made some changes to the Survival in the Southwest book series. I updated the covers and I have done further editing. These are available NOW through Amazon, Kindle, and Createspace. I have also finished another book! I am calling it The Bushmans Guide to Tools and Gear. There are some tips and tricks as well as other information in it as well. Some of the information in the book is available on my website…but that is a little difficult to pack with you into the filed.
