It looks like AUS-8 was added as a baseline of sorts
I would've liked to have seen figures for a comparable ATS-34 blade.
I noticed that your Mel Sorg has a recurve.. might that not have given it added
Another thing that would be very interesting would be a "round 0" reading on how well the knives cut before being abraded.
one gets the impression that 10V is about as tough or maybe only slightly tougher than D2
You acknowledge the variables, and this gives us a lot to think about.
I look forward to your Falkniven/Spyderco VG-10 report.
