STart with your favorite search engine or the phone book. I found two within 20 minutes of my house that I never knew existed. There appears to be a scrap yard in your town that deals with metal. I would start there.

Would be of value if you said what you wanted to do with the steel. Since this is a knife column that gives a clue but I think WE could answer a bit better if you fill us in. What do youi want to make. Are you looking for new or salvage steel. What tools will you work with? What heat source do you have etc? These may seem like extra info but they tell a lot about what steel may work best and how best we can answer. A starter I would suggest is to review bp0078 on heat treating carbon steels. There is another early bp on found steels and what they are made of. I do not remember the #, have fun
