Guys, just to let you know I recently bought 10 sticks from Burton. I can't speak for the steel yet (won't have a chance to forge for a couple of weeks) but I can tell you he ships fast and is very easy to deal with. Buy with confidence.

Well the next batch went out today. A couple of people sent me money orders or cashiers check your shipments went out but I didn't send a tracking # because I didn't have a e-mail. I think for the most part I am out of the steel. I thank everyone who purchased it and maybe I can do it again sometime I don't know if I will ever get it again or not. Anyway thanks again and sorry if you got left out, maybe next time.
Thanks -Burton

Fire and wind come from the sky, from the gods of the sky. But Crom is your god, Crom and he lives in the earth. Once, giants lived in the Earth, Conan. And in the darkness of chaos, they fooled Crom, and they took from him the enigma of steel. Crom was angered. And the Earth shook. Fire and wind struck down these giants, and they threw their bodies into the waters, but in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel and left it on the battlefield. We who found it are just men. Not gods. Not giants. Just men. The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery. You must learn its riddle, Conan. You must learn its discipline. For no one - no one in this world can you trust. Not men, not women, not beasts.

John I think I got the last order.
Let not the swords of good and free men be reforged into plowshares, but may they rest in a place of honor; ready, well oiled and God willing unused. For if the price of peace becomes licking the boots of tyrants, then "To Arms!" I say, and may the fortunes of war smile upon patriots
