    If you need other grades of knife making steels please let us know what you require. As our minimum order quantities are quite large in terms of knife making blank sizes we need to make a fairly substantial comitment to add a new grade but if interest is sufficient then we will source whatever you require.

    Due to numerous requests a range of popular sizes in D2 G.F.S blanks have now been added to our stock and are available to order. Thanks as always for your interest and feedback.
