In some abuse testing I was able to get the edge to roll while cutting raw chicken thigh bones diagonally, I used a steel to literally push the roll back into place and it looks like nothing happened, so it does seem pretty tough.
    Sounds good. One of the advantages of carbon steels like W2 that I have found is at typical hardness for a "field" knife, the edge will roll or dent/flatten long before it has a chance to chip out.
