how good is the steel in this particular knife compared to say aebl. is it comaparable and easy to shapen as the aebl? if i were to buy this knife is it razor sharp out of the box or does it need a touch up before use?

The steel is pretty good, not great. Yes it's comparable and easy to sharpen and similar in this regard to AEB-L. AEB-L when properly heat treated will hold it's edge better and theoretically take a finer edge too but then again if you check my laser aeb-l prices it's double the price of the Artifex wa-gyuto. I don't think there is anything on the market that competes with the Artifex wa-gyuto at the price point we hit on these.

Fujiwara uses AUS-8 hardened to around 57RCH for their FKM series. It's adequate, but not in the same league as the AEB-L used by Richmond or even by Takai Sakayuki.
