Yakut knife is a traditional ethnic knife of the indigenous people of Siberia and Far East Russia. Its unique concave/convex geometry sets it apart from every other knife. Most likely, the Yakut knife’s geometry is inherited from the Paleolithic bone knives of the Siberian natives. One anthropological theory suggests that the Yakut nomads, who possessed the skill of forging steel, adopted the unique geometry of their knives from the Evenks indigenous people of Siberia. The Evenks, the cousins of the North American natives, could not forge steel, and used animal bones instead. Hence, the theory suggests that the Yakut knife’s geometry is derived from the concave/convex geometry of bone knives.

The Yakut knives come in all shapes and sizes, with the extreme fuller on one side of the blade making them a unique bush craft tool. The convex/concave geometry of the fuller supplies the knife with an array of useful characteristics. Their versatility, durability, simplicity and effectiveness make them a personal choice of many bush crafters. Siberian knives are more than cutlery, pieces of ethnic art, Siberian tradition, and history. They also make a reliable survival tool.
