Ground flat stock has most knife steel if not listed email them. https://www.groundflatstock.com/Shop/Engineering/CategoryID/14

Or 1095 spring steel here https://www.westyorkssteel.com/spring-steel/cs95/

Just spoke to the lads at groundflat stock they said they don't do a 1095 but they do 8crv2 (1080+) any body made a knife out of this.. the price for is only a couple of pounds for the size I'm after..it will be used for making a throwing knife
