Along the "do you have" lines... do you have anything narrower? Your store is creeping up into 4-inch land, and I usually use stuff more on the 1.25 side of things.

Are you planning on carrying any other steels (because at your prices, the steel is a steal)?

I see that and I thank you sir. So far the only documentation isn't really documentation at all. I have received advice on HT from Peters heat treat in meadville pa and feedback from a bladesmith who conducted extensive testing on 2.94" x 0.122" material. The basics (also listed on the website) soak around 1650° from 15 to 20 minutes depending on thickness. Quench in Parks 50 on the cooler end of room temp.

 

I don't plan on it. The shop where it comes from uses only 6150 for their parts.

 

Thanks,

John

Hey Ted,

                I have just about every width it seems from 1.5 through 4.1. Just a quick list 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.9, 2.1, 2.2, 2.25 etc... There are three pages now of product. Each one is a different size. Now that we're getting into some nice weather I should be adding more soon.

 

Best,

John

 

P.S. Just finished  up my propane forge! Should be baking blades in no time!
