Need Nickel/silver barstock

Anyone know where I can find Nickel/silver barstock that is at least 1/2" x 1" x 6"?
Cannot find any over 3/4 inch wide and thick enough. Doing a large bowie with bog oak handle and brass will not cut it. Thought of doing sterling silver but just out of my price range. Any suggestions welcome but kind of set on nickel/silver since I alrready made a EDC, necker, and skinner all matched. Don't want to start over as I have my heart set on finishing this combo.

Can you stack 2 pieces to get the thickness you need? Maybe with black vulcanized fiber in between?

I have had to melt and cast a couple bars before to get the size I needed.

Casting it I can do, Anything to worry about? Nothing toxic?
