    Sorta a beginner (100% on my own now, I made a few badass d2 knives when I had loads of access to good university equipment) and I have a few pieces of 12in 3/8 1095 that I intend to make something out of once I get things moving; I fired up my forge (a super small seemingly shitty thing I think came from Amazon iirc and it doesn'twork like what I remembered) and it sucks compared to the awesome coal forge at SIU. Th3 main thing I have the greatest drive to make is either a large bowie or a relatively small katana (big fan of traditional Japanese stuff, even considered making my own tamahagane at one point, but kinda pointless with all the awesome steel you can buy now and the fact that I can'tsell my product for the worth without a reputation) so I don't seem to be able to find any places to buy any good "larger steel" like 27-28in.
