Great thread. No question Kurt and David from BB are doing us a huge service. I'd be happy to get another spreadsheet going with all the results and some graphs. Is there value unless these can all be substantiated?

Maybe I'll just fill in HRC data to the cut test list below

Already done. The Cedric & Ada data has the BladeBanter HRC data integrated. I can look at adding the other results mentioned here, but without some substantiation it needs to be considered anecdotal.

For those asking about getting these lined up with cut tests, the Cedric & Ada spreadsheet has some HRC data mapped to cut test results. It's only using the BB data so far.
I'm always happy to have more data points.

Hey guys I just like being able to have all the references, I don't always realize all the issues with crossing streams

Most of it is substantiated by JcoolG19 who did the majority of these tests. How ever, it's not my goal to substantiate the numbers. As stated in the first post these numbers are approximations and corrections and additions are always welcome. This list should NEVER be considered the last word on a particular knives heat treat. In fact outside of testing your own individual knife, I would say there is no way to tell what it is. But hopefully these numbers will give people a general idea or ballpark.

I'm not worried about variability between tests. I'm concerned about including data that somebody posts here without knowing and verifying the results from the source. I don't mean to imply that the data is bad. I just don't know that it's good based on a post in this forum. The JcoolG19 data is being moved into the BladeBanter spreadsheet and I'm confident about that HRC data. If I can verify some of the other data posted in this thread I'm happy to include it as well. It will likely just take a little homework on my part.

As far as I know *edit-most- numbers posted can ultimately be attributed to one of three sources... testing done by Kurt for people I know on IG, Ankersons BF list, and the BB spreadsheet. That being said I'm sure I'll get some stuff wrong. I try to be as accurate as I can.

Most of the Mule numbers come from JLS. Some numbers come from Sal himself.

I believe the BB spreadsheet is exclusively tests from Kurt. I could be wrong and hope they correct me if so.

The Mule numbers in the BB spreadsheet come from Kurt. I know this because they're my Mules. Have a few more to send him. If you're referring to other Mule numbers I'll take a look.

I also forgot Frankie Blades at Tactical Pterodactyl. A few of these are from his tests as well. He just posted some testing pics up on Instagram of Maxamet. The new PM2 @68 hrc and a pic of the Manix LW @69 hrc.

Haven't seen any new testing done or had anyone report numbers to me here, so nope.

I did add a little to the disclaimer on the first page.

You've got my vote. Really when you think it over it just makes perfect sense. I also think it would be a great information tool for the consumer to make a better, more informed choice. Because I'm doubtful if any other knife company would take the initiative to do something like that. Spyderco could truly make this to their advantage in many ways.

Anyone get their Province tested yet? I'm curious to see if Spyderco ran them as hard as their CPM 4V folders.
