Dancing Man Knives & Ulus

Maynard Linder 2

Maynard Linder

Homer, Alaska

Maynard Linder began crafting authentic, hand-made ulus in 1990, and by 1997 he left a successful Journeyman Carpentry career to make knives and ulus full-time. Today, he supplies knives to gift shops around the state, and to individuals around the world

Maynard spends his time making knives and ulus, so he can sojourn to the Seward Peninsula, and collect shed antler for his knife handles. When he has the chance, he works on carvings, such as Native-inspired masks, or ivory jewelry.

Maynard's Family

Maynard's wife Meriam is a crafter and owns/operates the Local Showcase gallery and www.HandsofAlaska.com website.

Maynard's older son, Sung, works in the knife shop with him. His younger son, Gryffyn, turns 6 in December 2015, and his daughter Arwyn is 3.
