1095 is often recommended as a beginner steel. We respectfully disagree. Heat treat of this steel is very finicky with a fine line between a blade that doesn't harden and a blade that cracks or breaks. 1095 can be a nice addition to damascus - and will take a nice hammon - both advanced skills. Beginners may want to conside 1084 instead, which makes a blade every bit the performance equal of 1095, but is much more forgiving in heat treat.

Now sold by the foot.

If you do not include cutting instructions, the 48" lengths will be cut in half if you order 4 ft; 5 feet would be sent as 3 ft and 2 ft ; and 6 ft would be sent as 3 x 2 ft.
