Carbon Steel Wire Carbon Steel Wire
Our carbon steel is custom made for TheRingLord. This is not the flimsy annealed mild steel you will find in a hardware store - this steel is drawn to a sturdy temper. The color is grey (i.e. steel colored). This is plain ordinary steel and is excellent for making medieval looking chainmail.
This will rust and must be looked after.
Please read this before you decide to cut your own steel rings
Cutting rings requires special tools and setups and the costs to cut only a few rings are higher. I highly recommend you read the following 2 FAQ posts before deciding to cut your own rings
Making vs Buying rings - Bottom line is we have a business making rings in large amounts at great prices. The vast majority of the time it doesn't pay to make your own rings - and you will get better cuts buying pre-made.
