ABL Stainless

Recommended Posts

So the steel supplier accidentally sent me ABL Stainless instead of 15n20. I looked online for a bit and in the heat treat app and I couldn't find anything in regards to it. I might have misheard him, but replaying the message it sounds an awful lot like ABL Stainless. Can anyone help shed some light on this?

Thanks Steve, that seems much more accurate. It also seems like a much more complex steel and heat treat than I am ready for, unfortunately.

AEB-L creates a very nice edge due to its chemistry being designed for a lack of large carbide formation, assuming a correct heat treat of course. Its a great stainless to work with, IMO. Lots of bladesmiths recommend it for razors.
