It is sold by the troy ounce, and is around $1 per inch for 1 inch wide stock. You want the 56% silver content, and not the real thin stuff.

I’ve made a number of Carbide tools and I really like them for some jobs. Over here in the U.K. the inserts are quite cheap and you can easily resharpen the flat ones by just rubbing them over a diamond plate. My favourite is probably the 9mm round.
