  1. Thanks John! You're the best!! I feel a lot better than I did before I saw this! Peter, I promise you the steel will be at Ashokan!
  2. Anthony, I think they both look great. I especially like the brass. It just looks right.
  3. I'm with him, flaws be damned, it's a beautiful blade
  4. Shannon, Thank you so very much. I appreciate the complement. I also appreciate the beautiful blade you've created. I'm hoping that,with the steels we've put together,there will be a lot more beautiful blades being made. The thought of water or brine quenching has always got me worried. I've, pretty much, stayed away from it. Last week one of my customers in NY state called me to tell me that he successfully water quenched 31 out of 32 1095 blades.(He said that # 32 was way to hot but wanted to know what the steel would tolerate). Perhaps it's time to try getting comfortable with it. I can't make any claims as to the formulas for the 1075 and 1095,other than the fact that I looked over billet certs. for a few hours before picking them out. The W2 was put together after a lot of phone calls and inquires about the best formula for the job. I pray that future heats yield similar results. I think that the smelting and rolling practices of the mill that made them all is top notch and we should look forward to a lot more "WORRY FREE STEEL" in the years to come. Aldo
  5. Jack, I have .350 thick x 1" 1075 in stock. If you need it to 3/4" we can saw cut it for you. Aldo
  6. To all concerned: With the cost of fuel going up shipping rates suck when it comes to ordering steel. If you are going to the Blade Show, as many of you are, we can alleviate you of the burden. If you need anything in the way of steel for the upcoming year go to our web site at njsteelbaron.com and have a look. Then send us an E-Mail or call us with your order and we will package it up and have it delivered to your table, your room (If at the Waverly) or to your car. If you use any Stainless Steels we offer decarb free bar. We can also belt grind to within .005 of finished size. We finish at 180 GRIT. We will be taking plenty of samples of our work. Please stop by BOOTH #201 and say hello. Thanks, Aldo Bruno New Jersey Steel Baron, LLC njsteelbaron.com 862-203-8160 njsteelbaron@gmail.com

  13. Jesus, you are the MAN! It is beautiful. Aldo
  14. Just seem to remember 1 alloy being .8 something. May be it was the Vanadium being a little higher on the Certs then the published Specs. Specs. are Specs. The Certs. change slightly from batch to batch. I'm not sure if there will be another batch, but there is plenty to be had from he 1st pour.
  15. Carbon: 1.05% Chromium: .5% Vanadium: .75% Managanese: .75% Hey Matt, Not bad for a Buffalo Man. Are these the Certs. for "The Batch" that was made or the overall Specs for the steel are:
  16. Luke, don't kid yourself. It's only easier because he does a thousand swords a year! Deker, it looks great. Congrats! The new stuff is .803 Mang and should give you a good dark etch as well, but you have your work cut out for you with this beauty and with your schedule you'll be lucky to get it finished by the DUE DATE(3rd weekend in Sept!) Really NICE Mr. D
  17. Scott, It's a beauty. Am I right in saying that you clay quenched it? It seems to show a real nice temper line on it. Aldo
  18. So let me know what you want for this one. I have someone in mind.
  19. If you are looking for CruForge V please contact me at the office. Getting it is not a problem.
  20. Because of the great interest in thinner W-2 sizing I called Niagara Specialty Metals and they are willing to roll our existing W2 stock out to 3/16", 5/32", 1/8" and 3/32". I will be bringing 2,000 pounds up to the mill next week if weather permits. There should be approximately 500 pounds per size. If you are interested, please contact us. The material should be ready by the end of March. You've been warned, Aldo Bruno __________________ Aldo Bruno NJ Steel Baron njsteelbaron@gmail.com NJ Steel Baron Office Phone # 862-203-8160
