    There is a company out of the Vancouver area that is carrying some knife steels. He doesn't have 1084 but is carrying 1075/80. I have looked all over the internets and all I can find on this stuff is that it is good for large knives and swords and that it is tough.

    Will this be a good replacement for 1084? I don't make anything huge or swordish and like the way that the 1084 heat treats cause I can do it myself. The price is very good and they have stock available.

    unless you are making high performance kitchen knives, you won't see a difference... 1084 isn't top notch kitchen knife material, anyway. Just heat treat it like 1084.
