Where do you guys get your 416 stainless? I'm looking at Fry Steel's web site. They seem to have every dimension available, I was just wondering if there was another.

I have used Fry for years with satisfaction.

Thanks guys. I purchased pin stock from them years ago and am about out. I will get guard and bolster stock from them also. I don't know why I haven't before. I was just poking around to see if there was any other out there to compare to.

Many suppliers have it, but none in the sizes that I commonly use, 3/16" x 1 1/4", 1/4 x 1 1/4", 1/2" x 5/8", 3/4" x 3/8", 5/16" x 5/8".....

Yes, and none of the knife supply houses carry 5/16", I know they have to carry what they sell the most of.
This thread and the one about the different sizes between the guard and sub hilt in some of your fighters.
You can't find 3/8" even at some suppliers, then I thought about Fry.
Its time to order pin stock, and getting it in 6 foot lengths it lasts a while.
