    15N20 is a shallow hardening steel as Del said, but the good news is that it is not quite as shallow hardening as typical 1095 or W2. I would guess that at least 80% of the good carbon steel damascus knives out there contain some 15N20.

    I actually like talking steel although I have very limited knowledge with regard to forging/HT processes. My comment was a response to the fact the I asked one person about their "ideal" kitchen knife design and your contribution to the conversation was a comment about competition choppers. Your comment had nothing to do with kitchen knives, thus eliciting the "you don't belong here, lol" comment from me.

    I was actually commenting about sub part 2, subsection a of your question regarding "toughness"

    My tougher stuff comment referred to this statement made by Fairly. It was not a question about steel toughness.

    Well, then just consider my comment a wild tangent.
