Carbon steel supply.

Recommended Posts

I have a question for y'all out there in the land of smiths.  Where can you get good carbon steel?  I have a good metal supplier locally for hot and cold rolled steel, and have been to some scrap yards for some old leaf springs and such but I want to know where is a good place to get high carbon steel like 1095?  Any suggestions would be welcomed.  I know I am new but thanks.

Welcome aboard mysterious blacksmith guy in NC, glad to have you. If you'll put your general location in your header it'll save us from having to ask all the time. You also might be pleasantly surprised to find out how many IFI folk live within easy visiting distance.


Have you hooked up with the local blacksmithing organization? Nothing will get you what you need locally like the local guys. Still, steel isn't hard to find and some ship free. Have you tried a web search?
