    Howdy! Been looking for 1084 1/8 x 1.5 x 12 for my second knife.

    Anybody have some websites for suppliers? Everywhere I am looking its out of stock.

    Thanks!

    Does it have to be 1084? Why not take a look at some other steels in the eutectic range like 1086, 1080, 1075, 80CrV2?

    And Aldo (NJSB) will run it through the grinder to make it 1/8" for you if you ask him nice.

    It seems like everyone is a little low on inventory right now.

    That's good, my wife is getting ready to make two billets up and we could not find it in the right size anywhere the other day..Back before Aldo had his runs made Admiral steel sold plain 1084, no vanadium. I bought the last bunch they had on clearance. 72" long 1/8" thick sticks for like $6 each. I think I bought about 8-10 sticks at that price.

    Thanks for the info!

    I thought 1084 was a good "beginners" steel for knives. All the different steel types are a bit confusing...😳

    Bud, yes 1084 is a good beginner steel [ easy to forge and HT. BUT that doesn't mean it's not good for experienced makers ! One of the better Damascus steels when mixed , 1084/15N20 .Good performance alone also.

    Had the same problem recently trying to find .250 thick 1084. Even W2, 1075 and 1095 were not available.
