O1 is still a favorite for some reason, but I use a lot of 52100 as well (have a pretty large supply of it). I just like it. Been experimenting with some "new" steel that I got from my buddies at Pop's Knife Supply designated as 8670. It has shown some real promise as a serious go to steel for bladesmiths. Don't have the specs in front of me, but the boys at Pop's can supply that info. I'm liking it so far, but need to work a good bit more to get the feel of it.
