Note: All steel is sold by the foot. When picking the quantity of 2, equals a 2 foot bar. Our steel bars come in 4 foot lengths (CPM steels are in 3 foot lengths). Please provide your cutting instructions in the shopping cart left of the total price in the box “Special instructions for seller”.  If no instructions are provided, we cut based on the following:
4 foot lengths will be cut in half and shipped in 2 foot lengths.
3 foot lengths will ship in 3 foot lengths.
5 foot order will be shipped in a 2 foot and 3 foot length.
Any bars over 3 feet are very expensive to ship and will be cut to fit in a 2 or 3 foot box.


We carry a variety of different thicknesses up to 1/8″ and have found that even 15N20 on its own makes great knife steel.

In other industries, it is used for saw blades.
