I would go with the A2 bladed ones personally. I also like cyrogenically treated plane blades but LV does not do that. They claim its a gimmick, Lie Nielsen claims its better.
Myself I think its better because some end mills and other metal working tooling is cyrogenically treated. Machine shops are very cost conscience so it makes sense that cyro treated tooling would last longer and the added cost could only be justified if it was true. Again, each has his own opinion and that is mine.
As for the plane itself, its a cool design. It would be a challenge to make, but it would look sharp in polished stainless steel

I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
