    There is an Anderson SS frame for sale ATH and I think the owner of the frame mentioned Dave was stepping back from building for a little while. I got a unicrown fork from him years ago to put on a touring/rain/gravel bike. (Pic of it in the Rain Bikes gallery somewhere.)

    If you're still thinking steel, have you checked with Waterford?

    If you want to splurge and stay with carbon (which it sounds like you don't) looks like one of Mike Lopez's (over at Action Composites the guy who built forks for Serotta) options in custom carbon forks is building with a 1" steerer. I assume he'd engineer wall thickness on the steerer to ensure long life and stability. It is offered as a choice at the Holland page, costly though. Have a look:

    https://hollandcycles.com/pricing/

    "All of our forks are built in San Diego by Mike Lopez of Action Composites. As co-founder of Reynolds, Mike has 40+ years in the composites industry.
    HC Tapered with titanium drop-outs- $850
    ML Fork – $549 (700c)
    Custom ML – $649
    (1 Inch steerer – Long leg options – Long steerer – Track fork – Clydesdale)"

    Can any joe off the street just buy one from Mr. Lopez? Or do you have to go through someone like a framebuilder?

    There is a Richard Sachs fork for sale on the bay with a 230mm steerer tube...who knows where the frame is or why the fork and frame parted ways. The auction ends in a few hours I believe and the last that I looked, bidding was around $225.

    I can say this...a Columbus Minimal in 1" definitely feels a lot better than an older Reynolds Ouzo Pro!
