sheared to length steel supplier?
Looking for a supplier of steel, 1084 and 15&20 that is sheared to length. Last batch I got was 1 1/4" wide by 6" long. Perfect for damascus, unfortunately it's been a while and I can't remember where I got it from.

You can try Alpha knife supply
I do believe they might cut it to length, their material comes in just under 12" and 23.5 lengths and they are the only place I know of that sells .160 thick 15N20 almost 3/16 of an inch thick, a piece of 3/16 15N20 forged to a piece of 80CrV2 steel would make for some interesting Damascus. The 80Crv2 steel is just 1084 with a little bit of chrome and 0.20% of vanadium which at the percent will restrict grain growth. It would be hard to mess it up if you just ht like regular 1084.
