AEB-L HC stainless steel allows DHF to design the blade with both high Rockwell hardness abilities and corrosion resistance. This gives the user high performance without the additional maintenance required from pure carbon steel. AEB-L is arguably the nicest culinary stainless steel available today.  At 61 HRC this steel has both edge retention and sharpenablity. Many makers push AEB-L to its limits and try to manage a 63+ HRC rating, DHF believes this makes the blades brittle and very difficult to sharpen. As a point of reference, the 'BIG' box companies harden there stainless blades to 52 HRC. We feel that it is important to consider not only 'Out of the box' performance but also the users ability to maintain what is nothing less than a lifetime culinary tool.
