    I order mine in from Aldo "New Jersey steel baron" Good luck finding anything other than O-1 or 4140 from a supplier in NS, trust me I have tried.

    Rob at Canadian knifemaker has a good selection. Prices and shipping are reasonable as well. Great to deal with too. http://www.knifemaker.ca/
    He's in Alberta so no duties to pay.

    I'll second the vote for Rob. I've always gotten good service there.

    Shopping Tip: If you don't see what you want on the site, call him. He doesn't always get everything entered into the system, and sometimes has small bits of this and that laying around in the shop.

    Another vote for Rob and Marilyn. Good prices, cut to the inch and great service. Usually in the post within a day of ordering.

    You have to call Aldo. everyone who works with him says the same thing. The website rarely reflects his stock.

    variety is certainly nice, however most underestimate O1 (not saying you do) I try to keep my steel options to a select few , O1 is definitely on the stock list for tool/carbon as well as a couple others in stainless and now damascus...........
