    The 52100 steel I have been finding in US is made either in Germany or Austria (for Bohler-Uddeholm). Both made to the same standard, so they are practically identical. Sweden and Germany have history of quality steel production, so I doubt you can get wrong with either.

    I am not sure where Aldo's steel is coming from (his W2 is German-made) but I have heat-treated his 52100 and can attest that quality is great. I have not had warping or any issues during heat treatment. I can get the steel all the way to 67RC (many data sheets list harden-ability up to 65RC) and then draw down to the hardness I want. I use Wilson Rockwell hardness tester and I have done this repeatedly.

    The only thing about Aldo steel that makes it less desirable is that is a notch too thick for kitchen knives. It's an oversize 5/32, so there is a considerable grinding involved, before you make a knife that cuts very well. I spoke to Adlo and he said he might send some of his stock for thinning. I also got a feeling that his next order will include 1/8 thickness.

    PS: There are other sources, but they won't sell to an end-user. You have to be a company to buy it.

    As they said there aren't a lot of sources for 52100 in good knife sizes. I can't make any recommendations.

    I got it from Bestar. You do however be a company, as they don't sell to end-users or consumers.

    I ordered 20# from Aldo today. Was having to grind it down to 1/8. Will let you know when I get it how it turns out. Also did mention to tell all he had this, so I think its somthing he is wanting to carry.

    God Bless
