The mill specs for the 1 3/4" 52100 round bar:

  I have used this steel to pass my performance tests for the Journeyman and Mastersmith tests of the ABS and to win a lot of the cutting competitions of the ABS Hammer-Ins.  It was used to placed first in the 5" hunting knife, 8" tactical, 10" regular cutting and the first First Place at the Spirit of Steel with a 10" damascus blade of 52100 and 15N20.  For those that may want a bit of back ground on the steel and how it performs, Cliff Stamp did a test on it several years ago and some of the results were posted on Blade Forums.  Below is a link to the thread.

Shipping address zip code is 74465 and USPS calculator is to help calculate the shipping costs to your address.  I ship priority mail unless otherwise specified by customer.

Priority mail has a flat rate box  that I can ship at least 30 pounds in for $11.65 plus $.65 confirmation cost.  If you can use pieces in lengths of 12" long, then that would be the cost of shipping priority.  I have also included a list of the places I will be in the coming year for those that live close enough to pick up their orders.


Custom rolling for hard to find sizes (2 1/2" x 24" limit) is $3.00  per pound  plus material and shipping.
