KATANA BLADE HARDNESS

Post by Darcy » Wed May 11, 2016 5:26 pm

Can someone please help me on the following? :S

Which is the best/strongest blade?
a...1095 HCS with clay temper
b...1045 HCS 10 x folded.
c...1060/1095 HCS mix Damascus

I admit my knowledge on blade hardness is rudimentary, but, correct me if I'm wrong (someone will!) a blade with higher carbon content tends to more brittle?
