Re: Great Video - Left a Burnniing Question

I actually did test a buffed PM-V11 chisel. Short version: like the buffed Buck Bros chisel, it had essentially no damage in the test. It did require more buffing to get a similar effect.

It would require a longer or more punishing test to see if there are differences. I suspect that what would happen to the edges in a longer test is that they'd just gradually get dull instead of failing via folding or chipping, but that won't show up well in these microscope pictures.
