Carbon Steel Griddle Spatula/Turner???

I volunteer at the homeless shelter at a local church. I'm the overnight host, and several years ago I started getting up early and cooking breakfast for our guests. The church kitchen has big, old American range, 6 burner with a big griddle, and the griddle is what I cook on. 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!

I know where one is, but I would have to hit my Dad over the head to get a hold of it...

Look at restaurant supply sites or stores.

I have. They all offer only stainless steel.

No problem, but that spat has been around as long as I can remember...at least 45 years...I'm thinking I saw some at an Army Surplus store.

Not likely the army would have me back. I'm surplus now, too. Of course, my great temptation is to buy the church nice, shiny, new stainless steel Dexter Russell 8x3's and abscond with the old spatulae.

I would check on Ebay.

I did not find any carbon steel spatulas but this jumbo 14 inch grill spatula looks like a good option.

I like your idea of swapping with the church just like Aladdin old spatulas for new!.

There's more than one way to flip a flapjack!

A purchase and swap sounds good to me.

Think I may have found some carbon steel spatulae, 3" w x "6 l flat, beech handles. 3" wide means I can scrape them off easily in a 4" w grease trap chute. We shall see.
