O1 is thinner, but they have several locations and not every location carries everything, but they have some good "from the book" HT data too. Having forged L6 I can tell you it makes great axes. They have it in 1/2" plate too, cut to size.

That's what I mentioned above. I get all of my 0-1 from Sheffields now. In fact most of what I've bought lately came from them. (Good source you turned us on to.!) I usually get the sheared sheet. Sometimes there is a slight bend but it comes annealed and I usually use 1/8" so I can straighten easily. Had no problems with warping during HT. I'll check out the Cintool site. Thanks.

Goater, kick the chocks out from under that ol' truck and roll down the mountain to Blairsville, GA this weekend and visit us at my Trackrock Hammer-in. There will be lots of variations of forges, anvils, and tools and a few demos on scrimshanding, tong making, bladesmithing, and maybe even some flint knapping.
I'm sure we can find something to entertain you.

I just looked up Blairsville GA..... I don't think you can get there from here! Sure enough in the middle of nowhere!

Actually, I got a free weekend with the wimmen-folk off on a Girl Scout trip. That may be some cheap entertainment for me.

Wait, would there be things for sale, like and ANVIL? Maybe not cheap entertainment! I'll check out the other forum thread.

Actually there have been several anvils bought & sold over the years. Very sporadic but does happen. Thing is to have $$ in hand, they don't sit long.
Join us if you can.

Goater how heavy is your present anvil, 25 lbs? Here's a 70 pounder made in USA, rated five stars by reviewers who used it for $339.54 plus $40 shipping. On Amazon.
https://www.amazon.com/Big-Face-NC-A...C6DSW56DQ156XB
At the Anvil Brand web site it's $284.
https://www.anvilbrand.com/NC-Big-Fa...Tool-P798.aspx

Here is a link to their anvil web page Goater. They have a lot of anvils, but the one I referenced above is from the NC Tool Co.
https://www.anvilbrand.com/search/result/?q=anvils
And here is NC Tool Co. web site they have some nice anvils, another 70 pound for $264.

One of the things I noticed in the reviews was everyone said it didn't dent and was hard and good for making knives according to one guy.
