Jimnolimit, thanks for taking the time and trouble to do all these tests. Very interesting, and I particularly like the way you do the tests and present your results: using everyday stuff that everyone can relate to; stating clearly the number of cuts and how the cuts were made; showing them side by side at each stage of your tests; and explaining the details with microscope views. The closeup views are especially much better than just describing the results in words such as 'The blade chipped'.
With perhaps the exception of the microscope views, anyone can repeat your tests. Your approach is very transparent and reader-friendly. I like it and hope that you can continue with other steels.
