52100    FLAT    BAR    NOW    FOR    SALE

This flat bar was purchased from Aldo several years ago and has been sheared into 1 1/2 inch wide strips.  The bars are in 24 inch lengths and can be cut into 12 inch pieces for reduced shipping costs. The thickness is slightly oversize.

 The price per foot of the 3/16" is $6.00 and the 1/4" is $7.50 per foot.  Email for shipping costs.



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

                        C= 0.93    Mn= .30    S= .006    Si= .200    Ni= 0.05    Cr= 1.37       Mo= 0.01

  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 $12.65 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.
