you have invented a steel porperty

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
it's about as tough as white steel (which makes a good chisel because it's high strength despite low toughness),

Hardness has a definite meaning and a means of measuring and reporting. Same for toughness, except there are various ways of measuring toughness.

Strength? How is this property measured and reported?
