raudan valmistus by jarkko1 raudan valmistus by jarkko1
Raudan valmistusta muinaiseen tapaan.

Making of the iron oldschool way and forging the knife from it.

1-2. Rautamalmin etsintää ja keräämistä joen pohjasta.

Searching and collecting the bog iron ore from the bottom of the river.

3. Malmin puhdistamista polttamalla, eli pasuttaminen

Cleaning the iron ore by burning it.

4. Pasutettua malmia, noin 4kg

Burned iron ore, there's about 4 kg of it.

5-6. Sulatukseen tarvittavat aineet: malmi, kalkkia ja puuhiiltä.

Materials needed in the melting: iron ore, lime and wood charcoal.

7. Sulatus käynnissä. Masuuni on tehty pääasiassa vuolukivipaloista ja savesta.

Melting ongoing. Furnace is made mostly from soapstone blocks and clay.

8. Näkymä masuuniin sulatuksen loppuvaiheessa.

View to the furnace at end of the melting.

9. Purettu masuuni

decrypted furnace.

10. Möhkäle jossa on sekaisin kuonaa ja rautaa. Jokin meni sulatuksessa hieman vikaan, koska rauta ja kuona eivät olleet erillisinä möykkyinä vaan täysin sekaisin.

Lump that contains slag and iron. Something gone bit wrong in melting as the iron and slag were mixed in one lump, instead of two lumps where one contains mainly iron and another the slag.

11. Rauta (vasemmalla) eroteltuna kuonasta.

Iron (on the left) separated from slag.

12. Poikkileikkaus rautapalasta

Crosscut of the iron piece.

13. Litteämmiksi taottuja rautapaloja. Palat kootaan pakaksi joka sitten ahjohitsataan yhtenäiseksi.

Iron pieces that are forged flatter. These are put together by forge welding.

14. Rautapala joka on taiteltu kaksinkerroin. Jotta raudasta saataisiin tasalaatuista, tulee sitä taitella kaksinkerroin ja ahjohitsata taas yhtenäiseksi, lukuisia kertoja.

Folded piece of iron. The iron piece must be folded and forge welded solid again many times. That makes the iron piece more homogeneous and condensed.

15. Rautapalan talttaaminen kahtia, jotta kaksinkerroin taittelu onnistuu.

Chiseling the iron piece, so that it can be folded again.

16. Palasta alkaa muotoutua puukonterä

Knife blade is starting to take shape.

17-18. Kolmen päivän homman päätteeksi: valmiiksi taottu, karkaistu, päästetty ja kiillotettu puukonterä paikallisesta järvimalmista.

After three days of work: finished knife blade made from the local iron ore.

Some of those pictures are taken by :iconaneesan: She also assisted me in this project.

Edit 8.3.2013

Kuva puukosta valmiina kahvan ja tupen kera löytyy tämän linkin takaa jarkko1.deviantart.com#/art/ma…

Finished knife with handle and sheath can be seen here : jarkko1.deviantart.com#/art/ma…

Edit 27.2.2014

Toiselle samalla kertaa tekemälleni puukonterälle tehtiin analyysi. Terän hiilipitoisuus oli noin 0,531%. Näytteet otettiin kahdesta kohtaa terän keskeltä.

Analysis was made for another blade I made at same time, from same iron. Its carbon content is about 0,531%

Varnia nimisestä liikkeestä olen booraksit ostanut. Myös teräsrenki myy booraksia, kalliimpaa kuin varnialla, mutta jos ei ole tarvista isolle erälle, ja ostaa sieltä vaikka terämateriaalejakin samalla niin tulee yksillä toimitusmaksuilla. Booraksin kanssa säätäessä kannattaa huolehtia hengityssuojauksesta. Käyttöturvallisuustiedote kannattaa myös lukaista ajatuksen kanssa läpi.

I must find the time to try something like this.

Much easier for me where i live in germany as i can start at number 13 or 14. This is because what i pull out of the river is not just iron ore, it is already iron and steel. Bicycles, shopping trolleys, dustbins, ;) (Wink)

How can you tell that there are iron ores in the river? Were they flushed from upper streams like gold? 
Reply
:iconjarkko1:
jarkko1 Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015   Artisan Crafter
Well, the heritage pretty much tells which areas have ore in waters, and when searching it its easy to just tap the bottom with oar and when it feels that there is ore, then try to get some up. The iron flushes into water from soil and it then starts to accumulate into suitable places.

Thanks for the Info. This certainly cannot be done in my home country, because It's too small and over-exploited by colonizers. You are very lucky to have such an abundant homeland.

Satuin kattelemaan noita kommentteja ja huomasin että oot opiskellut Joensuussa. Pääsin just itte samaiseen kouluun.. :)
Taitaa sieltä sit olla saatavissa just niitä oppeja joita sieltä lähen hakemaankin

Alotat siis syksyllä Otsolassa? Ei siellä opetukseen ihan tällaiset hommat kuulu, mutta hyvä mahdollisuus oman mielenkiinnon mukaiseen suuntautumiseen ja itseopiskeluun kyllä tarjotaan. Se paja on mielestäni huipputasoa, joten siellä kyllä kelpaa puuhastella. Harmillista tosin on ollut kuulla että pajatunteja on opetuksesta vähennetty viimeaikoina. En tiedä mikä siellä sitten on nykyään suhtautuminen iltatyöskentelyyn, itse häärin silloin pajalla usein iltaan asti. Jos saa jotain aineita hyväksiluettua aiempien koulujen ansiosta, niin ne ajat kannattaa koettaa käyttää pajalla jos vain suinkin mahdollista.

Minun on syksyllä tarkoitus tulla käymään Otsolassa. Varmaan otan mukaan jotain esiteltävääkin.

Khorppi Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
Sielläpä joo. Kuulostaa aikalailla siltä mitä sieltä odotankin.
Pääasiassa opetusta kaipaisin materiaalien suhteen ja tietty kaikenlaisista työmenetelmistä lisätietoa mitä suinkin on saatavissa. Tarkoitus olisi itse opiskella mahdollisimman paljon ja haaveissa on perustaa oma paja viimeistään koulun loputtua. Nyt on pikkupajassa perustyökalut, pikkusorvi ja miggi +ensimmäinen versio kaasuahjosta..
Rekkakorjaamossa oon ollu tähän asti töissä ja rakennellu harrikkaa sun muuta (raudasta tykänny jo kauan) vapaa-ajat, mutta nyt meni selkä ja alanvaihto edessä. Koulussa ois se kolmisen vuotta aikaa korjailla ruotoa ja pitää vaan toivoa että alkaa kestää.
Metallitouhut on ollu lähellä sydäntä jo pitkän aikaa, mutta jotenkin nyt vasta tuli valaistuminen että voisihan siitä koittaa ihan ammatin. Tietty palkkatyö aina turvallisempi, mutta nyt on jo pakko saada tehdä jotain mistä nauttii.

Amispaperit on jo ennestään (parikin ammattia kertynyt itse asiassa..) joten hyväksilukuja pitäisi saada ihan kunnolla. Ne ajat ainakin on tarkoitus viettää pajassa jos vain saa.. ja iltojakin, luulen.

Ota ihmeessä mukaan jotain, oon noita teikäläisen töitä tarkkaillu jo useamman vuoden täällä D.A:ssa..
Ja tuu toki moikkaamaan.
