I got the same messsge on Friday. I'm wondering if they took the web page down. It was little more than a pdf of their catalog anyway.

I am worried that the elderly lady who ran the place may have died and there is no backup plan. It was a great place to order from, including Alabama Damascus.

In reply to the "where is O1 sold and the chemistry shown not have vanadium" question,

If you do a google search of "steel suppliers", a couple of the biggest steel houses out there show up. Flatground and Hudson Tool Steel both do not show vanadium in the O1 composition. Speedy Metals, I cannot pull up their composition page, as the link is broken or something.

Not all O1 has vanadium, it is an optional element, and in a few Tool Steel books it explicitly states this. I make sure the O1 I buy has the vanadium. Yes, Starret is good stuff, too.

If you are going to buy a lot of O1 Cincinnati Tool Steel is the place. Their shipping is a flat rate $20 whether you buy 10 or 100 lbs. Check out their variety of PG metals.

I called Sheffield this morning and they are still open and working on their downed web site as well as a new catalogue.

I ordered from them today. No problem. I started to ask about the website and he excused himself and took another call while I was on the line . I heard him telling the person on the other line he was aware the website was down and they were working on it.

I was disappointed he no longer carries 5160. I wanted some to forge tomahawks.

HA! ^^Jim we posted at the same time.^^ May have been YOU asking on the other line.

Probably was Goater lol, but 5160 is available most anywhere and it most definitely makes good hawks and if you want it hard just forge an 1/8" piece of 15N20 in the center when you fold it over.

I also talked to CTS and the guy there said W2 is being fazed out so don't expect to see it in a year or two unless somebody special orders like 2000 lbs of it to be made.
