    This 52100 is clean and is my absolute favorite high carbon steel to work and make large Kitchen/Chef’s knives. It is easy to get consistent heat treating results and is fine grained and will take a wicked sharp edge!

    (verified owner):

    Don’t bother with this steel unless you have a decent heat treat oven or can have a professional treat it for you! But with proper heat treatment this is an awesome steel that takes an edge like almost nothing else I’ve seen, especially for the price.
