XH0815 1095 Hi-Carbon Steel 1/8 x 1-1/2 x 18 August 25, 2011
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Largo, FL United States  
This metal was cut using a mechanical sheer. Some reviews complain about this but I see no problem with it. The metal has a slight bend to it, but anyone with two hands and a knee should be able to bend it flat. This is a good choice of metal for those starting out and need practice. Easy to scribe, easy to cut.
