Few more years of experience gives question for lv

David Weaver
Why are the lv/veritas 0-1 irons tempered to a soft spec?

I've had all of the iron choices that lv makes, and probably would've preferred 0-1 if it had been driven above 60 hardness.

I learned a lesson from Steve knights o-1 irons, which in a cycle of any normal use would probably outperform any a2 iron I've ever tried.

The v11 irons are ok and certainly better than a2, but the relative advantage in edge life that the MDF tests produced doesn't really materialize in the same magnitude in wood.

Hock does not do 0-1 irons well, which leaves us shade tree hardeners making our own if we want something in the same hardness spec as most a2 irons.
