    Some of that depends on whether the blades were originally through hardened, or surface hardened. Obviously a surface hardened blade can have the harder outer "shell" worn, or ground through over time or with careless sharpening. It also depends on the composition of the steel alloy used.

    That is the whole deal with making a truly great blade, " The metals composition" like anything cheap metal equals cheap blade.
