I get mine from an oil field supply outfit. I buy 1 1/8 inch rope and only test on one lay at a time, this way I can hold the rope tight and feel my testing is more uniform.

Ed, how thick are the separate strands that make up the rope?

Thickness does not matter, it is only the surface you are interested in. I have tested tips on 1 inch and 1/8th inch flat stock and the results were the same. For example you have probably scratched a firearm using the wrong screw driver, you can engrave steel with a good knife tip.
