oooh yes thanks!!! i had in fact forgotten about yakut steels!..
and i was indeed looking at a nice example of a yakutian knife with such a steel only a few months ago!! how memory can fail you sometimes

it is very unique i think, i wounder is there any other examples of a steel hone built into the sheath in another culture?.
i cant think if i recall seeing hand held hones separate form the sheath from yakutia.. i will inquire with some yakut knife makers about other forms of native steel hone.. i can imagine there may be there types.
i wounder if other siberian and arctic peoples used a hone of some sorts?
