    Cool hey everyone...

    Hey everyone. Hope to learn something and expand my knowledge base.

    I like to make knives..trying to make some chef/cooking knives and give them to some of my friends and family..later this year.

    Looking for some W2 or L6 sheet steel. In 3/32" and 1/8" thickness..

    Thanks, Lawrence..

    Welcome Lawrence. I used to live in the KC area, for about 10 years. From KCK to Lenexa to the other side of the border. Can't wait to see what you are making.

    I have a lot of round stock for forging, 52100, D2 and L6 steel. But thought I would try making some stock removal knives, just some simple chef's knives for gifts.
    Can't seem to find any W2 or L6 sheet steel in 3/32" or 1/8" thickness..
    Haven't bought any steel in a while, I guess this has become old fashioned steel..(?)

    Lawrence..

    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
