    There are so many blade material out there.

    how does these stack up (in terms of edge holding, rust resistance, resistant to chip, etc)?

    Here is a re-post of a discussion by Joe Talmadge. Its from 2002, so 14C28N isn't mentioned.

    Spyderco also has some good info on blade steel.

    I have pretty much gaven up on non-premium knife steels - simply not worth having. Now-a-days I have knives out of 154CM, S30V (two different knives, including my current Large Sebenza), and BG-42 (small Sebenza), and so far I like BG-42 the best: wears best, holds edge longer. The knives of 154CM and S30V are very similar in performance/keeping an edge, but they are not as good as BG-42, which unfortunately is no longer available for Sebenzas
