Abrasion resistant steel?

I am seeking advice for abrasion resistant steel. One guy recommends S-7,
I'm not very familiar with S-7. I'm thinking 0-1, D-2, Stellite coated
cold-roll. The application is for guides for oil-tempered wire where the
ends of the wire will constantly be run along it. My parameters are: Ease
of machining, $, longevity...in that order. Thanks!

Sounds like a bitch if the wire is moving fast and/or has to be located precisely. For small work moving fast and accurate, a gemstone is often used.

I've had no problem machining Stellite #6 with carbide tooling.

Take a look at what has to offer.
Using their spray application, a thin [.00005"] layer of exceptionally abrasion-resistant steel could be applied where needed.
