Anything over 3 feet will cost extra for shipping and will be cut. If you do not provide specific cutting instructions and order more then 4 feet, bars will be cut in half. CPM steels will come in uncut 3 foot lengths if full bars are ordered (3,6,9 feet etc.) Example: An order of 8 feet of 1095 will result in four 2 foot bars. 7 foot order will have two 2 footers and a 3 footer.

Info about CPM S90-V from distributor.
"CPM S90V is a unique tool steel made by the Crucible, a martensitic stainless steel with a high volume of vanadium carbides means a blade with exceptionally good wear resistance and wicked sharp edges.
S90V offers substantial improvements in wear resistance over other high chromium tool steels, such as D2, and corrosion resistance on par or above most 440C type steels.
These attributes are the byproduct of its high volume of vanadium carbides to chromium carbides, where one adds wear resistance, the chromium in the matrix provides good corrosion resistance.
A favorite among folder and kitchen knife makers, S90-V is known for taking an exceptional satin finish to match its excellent edge retention properties.
When you need something more than a typical Crucible CPM but not as tough to work as CPM M4, give S90-V some thought, we are sure you will be happy you did."
