Are you looking for pin stock for handle pins or something the size for pommels?
For stainless pin stock your local supplier will have them in 416. I buy from Tru Grit usually at shows so I stock up.

I've also used aluminum and Grainger has a variety to choose from among them 6061.

Like Mike said, it would help to know what you wanted it for. I have seen W1 in round stock up to 1" in diameter but I don't recall the supplier. You might do a search for W1 round stock or for drill blanks and see what that gets you.

Try Pops Knife Supplies - 5450 Technology Pkwy #700, Braselton, GA
They were carrying some nice 1085 (Jap. steel) and 52100 in round stock. They can tell you real quick what they have in stock over the phone.
Close friends with the owners/operators so drop my name and they will give you a great discount on laughs. Excellent folks to deal with - all are accomplished knifemakers and know their stuff.

Carl, I guess I'm glad that I didn't run off at the mouth and tell Otsblades that he probably wasn't going to find anything like 1084 or 52100 in round stock. I was really surprised to read where to get it. Thanks.

Doug

Only be half glad Doug. I know I got the 1085 Japanese round bar from Pop's, they gave me several sticks to use doing demos at my Hammer-ins. It is very clean stock and works/HTs like it should.
However, the 52100 RB was gifted me from a good friend who bought it from someone on Bladeforum (maybe Kelly Couples, he's not sure).
Another alternate is that new spring steel Pop's has been selling - 8670. Getting great reviews and pretty sure they have it in RB. Best to contact them directly.

OTS - my friend has several sticks of the 52100. If you are interested he'll sell them to you. Let me know and I will pm you his contact info.
