    @dancom alerted us to this supplier first. I have just placed my first order and will update this thread when I receive my stuff.

    First impression is I really like the website, ease of use and the layout.

    I would really like to see these guys succeed, nice to have a supplier on the East coast:D

    Sounds like the orders are arriving at customers already. Shipping is fast by all accounts.

    I am curious to know what people think about his steel or what the source is. If it is what it says it is then he’s going to move stock that’s for sure. Just had a peak at the 80CrV2 and it’s $4 a foot less than I am paying now.

    The 15N20 and 1095 would cost me $150 bucks to make a billet plus getting it here.So using it to forge damascus billets is just prohibitive.

    15N20 1.5 x .095 x 42" is $42 and 1095 1/8 x 1.5 x 72" is $34. Not sure how you come to $150 to make a billet. 1095 is not currently in stock but is on route, should be here next week.

    Here is how I arrived at the price for a billet of 29 layers of alternating steel.
    15N20 .095x 1 1/2 x 6 =$6.60 x 14 pieces = $92.40
    1074 - 1080 .125 x 1 1/2 x 6 = $3.17 x 15 pieces = $47.55
    total 92.40+ 47.55 = $139.95 + tax +shipping would be well over $150.00

    Lawrence I know this stuff is expensive and real expensive to ship because of the weight.

    So if you were to buy 12” cut steel from NJSB, it would be 1075 1/8 x 12” x 8 x $7 = $56 + 15n20 x 12” .095 x 7 x 7.53 =52.71 total is 108.71 usd x 1.37 = $148 plus international shipping and tax. If you want to save money, buy full bars. They are 10% cheaper.

    My order arrived yesterday, I forgot I posted this lmfao!

    All present and correct and that’s pretty fast shipping!

    *Thumb Up*

    They will be carrying the Canadian company CEC Corp’s epoxy now too. Something I will be getting on my next order to try out. I also like that they have been asking for and being very gracious for suggestions on what they bring in.

    Look for me this is exciting haha, Rob out West is great, but by the time I’ve put a couple of things in my cart the shipping to Ontario is often almost as much as the items in my cart!

    Here’s wishing them the best:beer::beer:

    Just received my order Maritime Knife Supply and it was a very speedy delivery. I am happy with their selection (which keeps growing) and really pleased to have a local supplier.
    I'll second what Griff posted.

    I assume from your posts you must be affiliated with them. Any word on upcoming availability of any stainless steels like AEB-L, CPM154 and S35VN?

    Lawrence is the owner. I too would be interested in some different options for stainless.

    Question for Lawrence. I see we can select 72 inches in some steels on the site that I checked. Is that actually a 6 foot bar, two 3 foot bars, or how does that work? If it is a 6 foot bar will you chop them into 2 3 foot sections to avoid the crazy Canada post over length shipping charges or does it have to stay as a full length bar? Just curious on how your sizes and shipping work. I just got a new pail of Parks 50 and am thinking of stocking up on carbon steel to add to the stainless I have on hand.

    The 72” piece is one solid bar. I can ship full length bars, but after 48” it starts to get more expensive. I don’t ship Canada post. I use Canpar and Purolator ground shipping. I’ll cut the bars how ever ppl want.

    I have 3 places that I can order stainless from. I restock monthly. Let me know what you want and I can bring it in. Please provide metal, width and thickness. Stainless is more expensive so I’d rather bring in only what ppl request.

    I’d be interested in Elmax or s45vn. Although I have a good stock of steel atm so I likely wouldn’t pick any up for a while.

    I would be interested in a price for CPM154 or S35VN in something like 1/16x2 and 1/8x1.5. Not sure if there is a minimum quantity or if it makes a difference.

    Do you prefer ground clean steel? Is it worth the extra cost to you?

    For me, not worth the extra cost. A bit of mill scale is okay.

    I guess it depends what the cost difference is. Right now I’m not getting surface ground steel, just grinding it off myself which isn’t too tough.
