Best Beginner Steel For Stock Removal (3rd Party Heat Treat)

I am looking into building some knives and do not want to buy a forge yet. I would some suggestions other than the 1080 knives due to the fact since I will be paying for the heat treat I can use a more complex steel.

The only info I can find on beginner steel point to 1084, but my understanding is that is mainly due to heat treat forgiveness.

I also know that some steels eat up belts like crazy, and since I will be using a 1"x30" grinder for now that concerns me.

Can anyone please prov##e some suggestions?

I apologize in advance if this has already been covered.
