Morning. What high carbon steel (not stainless) do you guys use for making bolsters and guards - particularly guards and where do you buy it? Thanks,
Same here, I use mild steel from tractor supply. The only occasion I can see using high carbon is if I had cutoffs that were going to waste or if I was using Damascus bolsters or accents.I don't use high carbon for bolsters and guards. I use 1018 which can be found almost anywhere. If I remember correctly, K & G stocks it.
