Hello anyone have experience from alenox? How it compares to blue 2 or w1 in terms of how sharp edge it can take and the feedback on the stones? Anyone can recommend knifes made of this steel? Thanks

Composition is very similar to 440C so should be similar in performance.

It is stainless, so different from wh1 or b2. Wear resistance should be better toughness probably is most likely better too or at least similar. Wh1 and b2 will be harder, most likely. Usually they are heat treated harder. Might be more difficult to sharpen, but shouldn't be difficult.

All in all if you like the rest of the knife design the steel shouldn't stop you.
