Blacksmiths forging a golok machete near Yogyakarta City in Indonesia. Welcome to PART ONE of this series! Our next upload will focus on wood carving of the decorative sheath and Golok handle. Golok is the Indonesian work for machete. “Pandai besi” means blacksmith. We have many more blacksmith knife making videos at Bush Channel.
The address of the AMW blacksmith is Karangasem Village, Bantul, near Yogyakarta City. The English speaking guide at 13:18 is Aldrin Awuy from Vogels Hostel. Vogels is a highly recommended place to stay in the mountain village of Kaliurang on the slopes of Mt Merapi. Aldrin and his uncle Christian own Vogels. There is a translation error at the beginning of this video, this is not a Mandau blade, Mandau blades are a different type of Indonesian knife.
We have other golok videos coming soon!
