If it is tough enough (as in doesn't shed corners), It'll be more what I was looking for than 52100, which is a shame, because it's a lot more expensive and not very widely available.
You get what you pay for… :D
Sounds promising though. Too hard for an india stone is pretty damn hard.
I wonder if it will be excessively chippy, even at higher tempering temps. For example cast iron is extremely brittle because the carbon content is so high. Not sure if that translates to something that's been hardened and tempered though.
Only one way to find out!
