Just wanted to say thanks to @Larrin and @DeadboxHero for this incredible piece of work! This is solid gold! I'm also sorry for not becoming a Patreon supporter earlier... I've enjoyed several of the Knife Steel Nerds articles. Cruwear, S90V, and AEB-L really stood out to me in this article. Now that we have a solid benchmark for the wear resistance of all these steels at similar hardness, someone just needs to figure out a way to add microchipping/apex fracturing into the equation for some great real world steel rankings. Not it.
