Where to purchase?

3 posts in this topic

If this is in the wrong location please move but since my question is about nob ferrous metals I figured this would be the best spot to post. Anywho, my question is where do you mostly purchase sheet nickel and nickel silver. I'm looking in regards for use in both Damascus and Mokume Gane. The local steel supplier to me does sell copper so that I'm currently in supply of. Thank you for your time

It depends on how thick I need it. For Mokume, I use pretty thin stock and buy from either Rio Grande or Otto Frei. They will even shear-cut to size for a nominal fee. For fittings I use 1/8"-1/4" and buy from any of the various knife supply shops like K&G, Jantz, etc.
