I am looking at getting into knife and tool making and I am wondering if anybody knows a good place online to get high carbon steel.
Thank you!

You might be better off checking with a local distributor.

Shipping heavy things in a somewhat small quantity usually costs mire in shipping then being able to get it local.

Oh, and an excellent source of high carbon steel is leaf springs off of cars and trucks. Going to a junkyard is probably your cheapest bet. Especially if you're just getting started out. I've gotten some sweet kukris that a little dude in Nepal hammered out of a leaf spring.
