Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Toughness data are readily available in the steel literature. By the technical measure of toughness XHP is not lacking and in fact is superior to any other metal you have tested, except 3V. Either what you are calling "toughness" is some other property or toughness is not the cause of the defect you are experiencing.
