It says it ends Feb. 28th. I used it to buy an 18″ bar of O1 steel and it worked. I think it’s restricted to small items (at least that’s what it said when I used it). I think you need to go through the checkout process to see if your item is shipped free.
They seem to have 3 types of O1. “Made in USA”, Made in USA” with an MSDS sheet, and Starrett. I noticed the dimensional tolerances were tighter with the non-MSDS stuff, so I can only conclude that having that paperwork raises the price a little?
Grerg: I should have shopped around. That piece you got from McMasterCarr seems like a good deal. Luckily, this time around MSC was the cheapest for my size, but I’ll keep them in mind next time.
