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
