Making “Yakut” knife – blacksmithing
All done with no power tools. I forge a knife blade, carve a birch burl handle and a wood inlay for the leather sheath etc. Open the full video description for more information.
The yakut knife is a traditional and common belt knife design in Siberia used for every day tasks in the wilderness.
I recommend to google "yakut knife" or similar and get inspired. This was my first time making a yakut knife and I learned a lot and will next time do a few things different - like keeping the sheath and handle more true to yakut knife traditions.
Materials: Old file, birch burl, birch wood, cow leather, tung oil, epoxy.
Most asked questions:
1. Do you sell?
No. Don"t sell any thing.
2. What "power hammer" is that?
Treadle hammer and here is a video only about the hammer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmru3hXj47U
3. What is the purpose of the forged hollow part on the Yakut knife?
A lot of reasons... Here is some of the main once. 1. Stiffing. 2. Less surface area - giving less friction resistans when cutting and giving less steel to remove when sharpening. 3. Less weight - making some yakut knives able to float in case example a fisherman drop it in the lake. 4. The blacksmith use less steel.
