That AEB-L steel is some pretty amazing stuff, with a good heat treat and cryo to a HRc-60 it should rival cpm154 may not have quite the edge but it makes up for it in its ability to take a super fine and sharp edge. It's a breeze to resharpen because it has super fine carbides and you can hone it and strop it just like a carbon steel blade. And for just a quick touch up you can just re-srtop it, or give it a few light strokes on a butchers steel.I just got back from the post office. Scary sharp doesn't even com close to describing this blade. It is easily as sharp as my best straight razor. If I cut myself with it I may bleed out before feeling the cut.
Congrats Scott!I need to find a copy of this magazine.
