It is a great blade steel. Takes a fine patina as well. INFI is great as well.

The bottom line answer is YES!!!

How good is it as a blade steel compared to INFI?

INFI is tougher, more stain resistant, and holds a good edge
SR101 (52100) holds an edge a longer, is tough and usually comes coated to help with stain resistance

In general, blade geometry and shape will effect toughness and edge retention
