We've been recovering high carbon saw blade steel from lumber mills in central British Columbia since 1998. Big saw blades, 2, 4 and 6 feet in diameter, 1/4 and 5/16 inch thick. Recover and process is not easy but well worth the effort.
Another choice of steel stock we forge is spring steel. We recover 5160 spring steel from older auto wrecks. For larger, heavier adze heads, spring steel is an excellent high carbon steel for adze blades cutting through tough knots and leaving finish behind.
