More so than you know.

Let's just say this is a perfect time to let that particular joke die a natural death. No harm done.

CHOPPER <> My views as to Blue vs. Swedish are #1 that the term Swedish Steel as used by Japanese sellers usually means one of three things:
    A) The iron ore was mined from the very pure Sandvic deposit.
    B) The ore was both mined at Sandvic AND made into steel by Bohler Uddeholm or Sandvik.
    C) It's used a generic for steel made by anyone from very pure iron mined anywhere.

There are a lot of really confusing replies here claiming better or worse, some that are just flat out incorrect, but I think that stems from the fact that your question is pretty vague as "swedish steel" is a term that encompasses a swath of different steels... some SS & some reactive; just as Blue steel comes in three blends & a nearly infinite amount of heat treatments by different smiths. Blue steel & Swedish Steel come in so many iterations I can't see how it can be said Blue has better retention or Swedish has better this... yada yada.

Fair point.

In my post I was specifically referring to my observation that I seem to get better edge retention out of my Kohetsu AS over my Goko Damascus in 19C27 Sandvik. On the other hand, I am not sure I have observed a big difference between the Kohetsu and my Artifex in AEB-L, though I use the Artifex very infrequently.

Hi Cedarhouse: Is the ability to take an edge and ease of the sharpening of the AEB-L similar to the AS? I don't own either but have a white #2 and Blue #2 and and I'm wondering if the AEB-L is capable of taking as good an edge as carbon knives. I cannot get VG-10 in the tojiro DP to take an edge anywhere close to the carbons.

AEB-L sharpens comparable to AS but not quite as easily as white steels. It takes an edge very close to many carbons and holds it well if the heat treating has been done right. It's as close to a carbon you will get in a stainless in my opinion. My favorite stainless.
