Bohler AEB-L: Originally developed for razor blades and often described as a stainless 52100, AEB-L takes a very fine edge, is easy to sharpen and has a high toughness with good corrosion resistance. Excellent edge stability (resistance to rolling and chipping) allows for a thinner edge and better cutting performance. Sandvik 13C26 is an analog of AEB-L.
