    Pottery supply store here in Seattle. How much do you need? If you can't get any around your place, let me know and I'll send you some.

    Thanks Michael. I won't need much, just enough for a few blades. I will inquire with pottery supply stores and if I can't find it locally, I might take you up on your offer.

    I figured the thread would be about some material you renamed Satanite because it was giving you so much trouble while working on it.

    Hey Marko, if checking pottery supply stores if they say they don't have satanite ask for smooth set kiln cement. K&G sells Satanite in a five pound jug also. http://www.knifeandgun.com/ProductDe...roductCode=RS1 it costs more this way but is nice to have the storage jug and five pounds is a lot for playing with a hamon. If that is what you are doing then it also helps to run it through one of those cheapie coffie grinders before mixing in the water.

    Thanks guys!

    What am I up to? I just got some W2 from Aldo. He is 45min away from me so I paid him a visit plus exchanged some 52100 I got from him earlier (his 3/16 almost 1/4"thick!). Met Sam Salvati at Aldo's shop/store.

    So, when I have a little more time, I will start experimenting with heat treating W2 and 52100. As Bill correctly concluded, satanite is to play with hamon.
