Rookie knows more about the steel than I do at this point. The general idea is it will offer a much longer lasting edge. I'm guessing it will also be harder to sharpen than the easy grinding AEB-L. It should be an ideal line knife and a great way to try the steel without blowing a ton of money.

All I can say is that my M390 Gyuto 240mm @ 62 Hrc was a biatch to sharpen, but I could not dull the edge the slightest bit after a week of cutting - it is simply amazing - also zero chipping at this stage.

My 2 x M390 Benchmades are also supposed to be 62 Hrc, but they sharpen much easier than my Gyuto???

I reckon Gareth Bull (the knife maker) really did the heat treat well as he has some vast experience working with M390.

Sounds great and an awesome price to boot. I'm hoping to get my little m390 knives sent out to heat treat, hopefully within
the next week. I would imagine these will probably sell out in a couple days.
