solmupuukko by jarkko1 solmupuukko by jarkko1
Iron age style knife, but not strict historical replica. Handle and sheath fittings are made out of bronze.

Although the casted handle is hollow, this one turned out to be bit heavy. Handle is filled with glue and tang is also riveted at end of handle.

Blade is actually pattern welded, but it needs to be watched closely to see patterns (not visible in photo) .

Great work!

I have newer got to try casting bronze. Did you use casting sand or some other kind of form?

Thanks. The handle is made using "underpressure casting" method (im not sure is that orrect english term for it). Models are made from wax and mould is casted from gypsum over it. Before pouring bronze in, the wax is melted out from it. When pouring bronzein, the mould is in machine that absorbs the air from it, so that bronze goes in better.

Casting sand works well for simple shapes, but these handles had to be hollow, so underpressure casting was better method for them.

Btw, what does solmupuukko mean? Is puukko the word for dagger?

Puukko is kind of traditional finnish knife, not dagger :)blade of puukko is often made so that it works well in actions like carving etc. but there are of course many kind of them.

Solmu means "knot", referring to the handle.

Onko toi "naarmu" tossa ku damaski ei hitsautunu vai muuten vaan? Itellä sillontällön ongelmana ku ei suostu hitsautumaan raudat yhteen. Hieno puukko BTW.

Teräs on täydellisesti hitsautunut, mutta tuo "naarmu" on damaskin ja yhtenäisen hiiliteräksen raja. Se sauma kohta syöpyi hapossa syvempään kuin muu kuvio ja jätti tuollaisen viirun näkyviin kun muuten kiillotin terän. Tuon terän hapottamisessa nimittäin oli ongelmia ja lopulta kiillotin sen niin että kuvio erottuu vain hyvin läheltä katsoen, mutta tuo saumakohta tosiaan syöpyi syvempään.

Jos raudat ei meinaa hitsautua yhteen, vaikka lämpö on riittävä, niin voi vaikka olla välissä epäpuhtauksia, vaikka kuonaa, tai hiilessä rikkiä mikä hankaloittaa hitsautumista.

Juu, kiitos selvennyksestä. Mutta kolmen onnistuneen damaskin tekijänä en kovin paljoa kyseisestä aiheesta tiedä, ja yleensäkkin onnistuessaan on jäänyt jokin pieni hitsutumaton jälki... Ja olen käyttänyt booraksia palojen hiomisen ja putsauksen jälkeenkin hitsauksessa.

Väkipuukko roikkuu hyvin vyössä mukana! olen pitänyt sitä saksityylisesti edessä, mutta kilvenkäytössä hieman on tiellä,tarttuu kantohihnaan käännöksissä ja nopeassa taistelussa,kun torjutaan useampia iskuja eri puolilta..taitaa olla vaan tottumiskysymys. Täytyy miettiä laittaisko sen tohon kupeelle..
