Sorry to hear that. Back in 2010 and early 2011 I was satisfied with their fulfillment of several orders; except that their shipping charges were a little high.

OK, here's what I got...Dexter Russell carbon steel, 3x6 inch flat, roll tapered, beech handles. It's from their Traditional line, and the only carbon steel spat they still sell. Lacks that graceful curve at the heel of the blade, but it's probably as close as I'm going to get. Slightly smaller handle, too, but comfortable. Nice and springy/stiff, sharp leading edge, and will season to non-stick. They'll work just fine. Oh, and I did not buy from Dexter Russell, I bought off ebay for about 2/3 what D-R gets.

I was going to suggest a Japanese teppanyaki supply. My son has done the "cooking at the table" style cooking and had to buy his own utensils. His spatulas would ring during his cooking on the grill. But it looks like you made out and got pretty much what you wanted. Glad you were able to find something.

The carbon steel spats I got ring, too. Hardened edges. They're made like good cutlery.

I have been looking for these spatulas for years. If you have found a source, please post where it is. Thanks

Carbon steel is more flexible than SS. That's the main reason they are so popular in commercial kitchens. When you have to flip 500 burger patties a shift you'd soon appreciate the springiness.

This is for an 8" round nose cake turner, carbon steel. I bought 6" square nose, and am still looking for a link. It looks like the carbon steel 6" square may no longer be available in carbon steel, only stainless. Dexter-Russell 16231 8" x 3" Solid Turner - Beechwood Handle

Or here. This is the model I have, Dexter Russel 2386H-6 At one time, there was a Dexter Russell 8" square carbon turner, walnut handles instead of beechwood. I inherited 3 of those. Sears.com
