I clearly wrote that they are in "the same range." I don't know why I post charts if no one looks at them.
Yup, and they are by your chart in the same range
Not all that much of a difference by the chart, not enough of a difference that one would really see it in real use
anyway given two knives made the same way etc. By the chart taking the numbers for what they are it could go either way depending on the variables being they are that close.
Something like 1095 compared to 52100 or 5160, that's more of a real difference that people should really see in real use.
The problem I see with using charts is people will focus on the numbers and even if they are close as they are here comparing S30V and 1095 they will assume they are written in stone and that is huge difference. It's not a large difference at all in reality.
But then we know toughness numbers are subjective in the 1st place when it comes to knife blades.
So your statement about them being in the same range was correct as you already knew.
