Hardness and Ease of Deburring
#6
HRC54 = 152 BESS, worsening by 43
HRC62 = 111 BESS, worsening by 16


That is interesting Mr. KG.  A difference of 27.  I wonder if this holds true over multiple tests with different knives and steel types.  Not sure I'd notice the difference when slicing my breakfast kohlrabi the next day, but nonetheless a curiosity.

It's interesting to see folks on knife forums fussing about a couple of gram difference in sharpness along the edge of their knives, and now we can actually present carefully controlled studies like yours showing that just letting a blade sit overnight can result in a 43g reduction in sharpness.  I have little doubt this is not commonly known and will come as a surprise to many sharpeners.

Thanks for sharing!
