    Actually, you would be WAY ahead on making this meet than ordering anything to make a razor. Charlies meets have more razorsmiths present than ANY "hammer in" than anywhere I am aware of. There us nothing you could not ask that couldnt not only be answered...but SHOWN.

    I understand scheduling conflicts and lack of cashflow better than I get that part.

    I know this thread is relatively old, but I'd like to add something. If 1084 can make good razor edges, 80CrV2 certainly can as well and it's even easier to HT than 1084. Can be austenized from 1500f to 1575f. The vanadium also helps to keep the grain size in check. I use almost exclusively this steel along with W2(I use for hamons) for knives.
