I don't think they would, because the SEM would illuminate everything including the stuff that's dark in the optical pictures.

It does strike me that one of the A2 pictures that you'd sent of the coated blades looks a little bit (the optical ones) like the pictures we've come up with.

It makes it clear that anything optical at high magnification is a matter of "it looks like" and not "it is". It may be both, but the difference in the looks of the PM vs. the plain steels may be more about what shows up visibly than what really is.
