I need oxygen free copper.
Roofing copper is the worst kind.
When the copper is hard soldered, oxygen combines with the hydrogen and causes water steam to precipitate to the surface which causes embrittlement.

Also check with knife making suppliers. Brass, copper, nickle silver, Micarta, used as liners for fancy knife handles.

We order OFHC copper quite often at work from McMaster Carr.

It's shocking how expensive that stuff is. That piece could cost around $100 or more.
