If you want stainless knife steel in Winnipeg, you have to get it shipped. Unless you want to order it by the ton, then Ryerson could probably help you. Canadian Knifemaker Supply has it, but Tim, above, looks like he's offering a pretty good price.
Got anything else for half price, Tim?

@tmr This is great to know, sadly I’m not sure if anyone will be able to pass through anywhere this summer lol...the jury is still out on this Virus and summer as it’s thriving in other warm countries with high humidity just fine!
Even if this virus were to bugger off, Sadly Thunderbay is still a 14 hr plus drive both ways for me lol!
Anyway, thanks for sharing, glad you are here, your experience would yield amazing knowledge, and I for one look forward to anything you have to share on the forum.
Thank you, take care,
hpoefully we will get thru these trying times griff......just remember that there is this old knifemaker in thunder bay with a ton of material that can be spread around and you never know when you or maybe a friend takes a road trip and passes thru......thanks for your response and kind words......Tim Ross
