    Default Resources for Razormaking

    This thread is an index of resources for the aspiring blade maker. Some may be housed here on SRP, but many are external.

    If you have a resource you'd like to share, please submit a link to forum moderators Bruno or JoshEarl.

    Supplies
    These are vendors that JoshEarl has personally dealt with, and the comments reflect his experience with the vendors, not the position of SRP.

    USA Knifemaker Supply--Great prices, good source for grinder parts and belts
    Ellis Custom Knifeworks--Forge materials, heat-treating supplies, ready-made forges
    Texas Knife Supply--Tools, materials, pre-made blades; prices are on the high side, but often the only source for hard-to-find stuff
    Jantz Knife Supply--Similar to Texas Knife; good all-around selection, prices are a little high
    Admiral Steel--Tool and carbon steels; prices are good, but shipping can be steep
    Flatground.com--Another steel vendor; good prices and reasonable shipping
    Blade Steels, Steel Analysis and Heat Treating Methods.- 1st page
    Poor Boy Blacksmith Tools--I haven't dealt with this guy personally, but the tools he's selling look like they're good intro-level quality. Check out his freon-tank forges--for $200 or so, they're a good deal.
