Re: Definitely like the XHP a touch softer

David Weaver
XHP #2 and #3 got the oven again today, and got to 415F, I think I said that already.

AT that temper, they are subjectively less hard than a 380F temper, and sweeter in use. Incredible sharpness off of the washita, and as bright of a finish as I've seen off of carbon steel on any stone.
