    Hey guys, longtime no post lol!

    just wondering where you pick up your tool wrap from to heat treat stainless (that is if you’re not going the coatings route)?

    Knifemaker.ca was selling 24” x 25ft for $190.00, I found a place selling 10” x 50ft for $162.00. Both are the same thickness and 2100F rated. Just wondering if this is the norm?


    Cheers,

    Griff

    I got mine from knifemaker.ca about six months ago. I recall that I looked around quite a bit but couldn't really find a much better price. From a cost per unit perspective it sure looked like coatings were a better bet but my volume is so low that I wanted a more tested product.

    It is really beyond me why anyone would use that stainless wrap and why anyone would pay the price they want for it.
    There is nothing more fun than trying to remove that stuff at 2000 Deg.
    There are some excellent high temp coating than can be applied to knives that in my opinion do a much better job and way less hassle.
    I heat treat in salt so I don't have to use either one.
    Dancom has been using one I recommended to him a few years back and I think he has has great success with it.

    Somewhere there is a post about it and I believe that John Noon stocks it.

    Thanks guys.

    Cal I’ve paid attention to the posts on the Condursal Z1100 And John’s ATP-641, fully aware of them. I just wanted to know if this pricing is normal for tool wrap.

    I have two billets of stainless sitting around, 440C and AEB-L, I could make two chefs knives out of them for Christmas gifts. But not sure if it’s worth the bother given the cost of all the options before Christmas, when I could just wait until I have more stainless in and more knives to treat before purchasing said coatings.

    I was hoping someone came back and said you can get tool wrap here at a good price and you only have to by 3 feet of it if I am being honest. But I think I am just going to shelve the idea until the new year anyway.

    Cheers.

    I bought some 2 thousandths SS foil wrap some years ago from McMaster-Carr. 12" x 25 ft was around $100, so the prices quoted seem normal. I use Condursal now. Still trying to make a dent in my first can. That can will probably outlast me.

    Thanks Dan! The stuff I am getting from John looks promising too. I just grabbed a pint and I’ll see how it goes. Last time I priced Condursal is was $180 for the quart I believe.
