I was doing some digging a couple months ago and found a guy supplying knife steel in the Lower Mainland area. Thompson Metals is the name of the company, Jason is the owner whom I have been in contact with. the company was Independent Specialty Steels and he bought them out the beginning of the year and the name changed to the current one. He is carrying O1, 440C, 154 CM, S30V, S35V, 1075/80, 1095 and 15n20 for knifemaking. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get a hold of him for info. His website is not up and running yet. I have got pricing on 1075/80 and it is very reasonable.
