  7. Where can I buy steel for knife making?

    Thanks For the comment Daniel but I have already bought steel from artisan supplies and because I am in Australia texasknifemakers would probably cost more in shipping.
  8. Where can I buy steel for knife making?

    Thanks man I think I will just stick with high carbon and tool steels for now just makes life easier and cheaper.
  9. Where can I buy steel for knife making?

    Oh yes I see I do not think I won't to keep it hot for an hour and a half I do not have enough gas or sub zero temps. Do you recommend I do not get a stainless steel and just stick with high carbon and tool steels ?
  10. Where can I buy steel for knife making?

    Thanks guys I am going to get my metal off artisan supplies the metal I am selecting is 440c for stainless steel, 1045 tool steel square bar and 1095 carbon steel. Thanks so much for your help.
  11. I have been making knives out of mystery steel for about a year now and I think it is time I should invest in some good quality steel. I do hot work and cold work depends on what I am doing but at the moment mostly cold work. I am trying to find a place where I can buy o1 tool steel. The problem is I live in Darwin region Australia and I can't buy specific types of steel locally. I was told to look at online stores in America by another knife maker because it is a lot cheaper but I am not sure what site I should get it from. Sorry for being so difficult in finding metal but it would really help if I found a good site to get steel from. Dan
