Yea!!! Once you have yours, can you let us in on the source? In case there are limited quantities...:)

Should be a bunch, I just want to see how they stack up against the relic in the picture. They are from Dexter Russell, #2386H-6. I called them, and was assured it was high carbon steel rather than stainless steel. I'm going to order one and see.

Thanks, they work great on the outdoor grill!

There are some spatulas that have just always been there, 3, identical, and I like them. A lot. They are carbon steel, the kind you have to dry. About 13 1/2 inches long, walnut handles, brass rivets, solid. Square nose. The flat is about 3 1/4" x 6", but here is the thing. Spring tempered, roll tapered carbon steel. These are perfect, and I wanted to get myself a pair of them, but they are impossible to find anywhere (so far). I found one mfr., Dexter Russell, that offers a choice of SS or carbon steel until I try to buy, then offers ony the SS. Any help, anybody? Thanks!
'Dexsteel' is more like high carbon steel than most stainless

Thanks! I went with the 6" carbon steel. It most approximates what it will replace, including the square end. I will let you all know how I like it when it arrives.

I got the three carbon steel spatulae in the mail today. Very nice, high carbon, roll tapered, beechwood handles with brass rivets. They go for about $25 from Dexter Russell, the manufacturer (yup, made in the USA), but can be found on Ebay for about $15+s&h. That is where I purchased. Not quite as sweet as the oldsters, but nicer than anything else new I've seen. Dexter-Russell, Inc.

I'm glad they at least meet expectations, now they just need some loving work and get some grease into those handles.

JustPlainBill, I went back to your link and found a spatula similar to, or the same as, what I am looking for, at considerably less than the Ebay purchas...considerably less. I have 2 weeks to return the Ebay lot, if for any reason. I'll let you know. Thanks!

I'm glad you found what you want Gadz, but I'm curious to know why you want carbon steel opposed to stainless steel?
