A bit of random info. In Michael Christy's rex 45 video, someone commented that they rockwell tested their Para 2 rex 45 and got 66.5 hrc. This matches the number Sal mentioned a while back.
In that video he says that persons knife tested at 64 hrc.

Yes, within the video he is referring to a post by frankie_blades on Instagram. I am referring to the comment section of the you tube video, not the video.

Which steel (rex45 or 4v) would be best in a Shaman?

Both. It depends on how you'll use it, what kind of edge you like, what kind of edge retention you're after, etc. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

...But in general, I'm all about high performance, Ergos, safety. That's why I've been accused of "deigning in the dark"...
