I am curently experimenting with some steels in the super wear resistant range.
Up until now I've used steels that have good/great wear resistant properties with the greatest edge stablity and ease of sharpening.
The SWRS wil be hard to sharpen but will hold an edge for an extremely long time. They should have good edge stablity due to the powder metal process. They are a tool steel and not stainless. I'm making these in sanmai to make them easier to finish for me and the stainless clad will will hold up better in the kitchen.
We did some heat treat testing and some destructive testing and I'm very, very impressed.
I'm looking for some input on this so please chime in.
P.S. I will have a couple of these for sale at the Vegas show.
