Arrow Elmax steel?

Does anyone have any experience with blades made with Elmax steel? I'm looking at a bushcraft knife similar to an ESEE 5, with an Elmax blade, and I would like to get some opinions.

Interesting. Never heard of that steel. The only stainless steel knife I ever liked is my Puma TrailBoss.

Elmax is a decent steel. Good edge retention that is fairly easy to sharpen. Toughness isn't the greatest so it makes a good choice for an EDC pocket knife where it isn't going to be used to baton through wood or pounded on, but for general duty tasks.

You may get more responses if you post this in the knife forum instead of primitive weapons forum.
