Triplette blades, 'Super blue'

OK, so I'm going to order a foil from Triplette and it costs US$3.80 more
for a 'super blue' blade.  

I have no idea what this is.  They don't tell you in the catalog either.
I'm probably going to get it, because even if it's useless I'm only
out an extra US$3.80 :)

But I'd sure like to know what that blade enhancement is, and why anyone
would want such a thing.

These are, I believe, BF Blue blades, like those sold by allstar. They are
supposed to be more resistant to corrosion or something like that.
Actually, I think that that they are treated with oils and temperin that
makes them more durable. Whether or not this is the case is arguable. I
would not invest more money in a "blued" blade. Actually, it doesn't
matter what kind of blade you have if you're a good fencer.

Not to your fencing, but if the blade only lasts 1 month
or routinely leaves ridiculously huge bends after a touch...
and I like the fact that maraging blades don't rust.
