A11 is an amazing steel. It is tough and has excellent edge holding.

I don't understand why this steel is not more popular with knife collectors. It is tough to work because of its a wear resistance. I don't think any knifemaker will offer any finish except for a belt finish. It will also be hard to sharpen. But once it is sharp it will be sharp for a long long long time.
