Thank you very much for your posts !

Sorry, but afaik:

1. In chechen (or more general in vainach) steel is "bulat", for example Haz-Bulat (beautiful steel), Bet-Bulat-Ka etc. It's assumed that the word was introduced by turkish tribes, either khazars or mongols.

2. I always thought that it's also Bulat for "forest" mongol tribes, like Bashkir and so on, and russian/ukrainian bulat is simply a copy of this.

Sincerely yours,
