    It seems similar to aeb-l. I think it has a touch more carbon content.

    It doesn't have any of the added elements that can make some stainless not fun to sharpen.

    I've found it does have a slight patina, so I think it's barely stainless, in fact; it does have some chromium.

    It took a quick edge, and didn't gum up my stones much.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Sounds cool

    I might try this out as a project knife as well

    I have had the same issue with some stainless where they aren't so stainless
