Correct. But then look at the testing of edges that has been done by members here. I'm not just using one source of information. That just was the best numbers illustration I could show. Go hit up the tests gossman does on his knives, or Iz on his, or MP. I kinda meshed it all together. To answer the edge deformation question... knife didnt break did it... grab a rock and start sharpening lol. But really, we see edge testing done all the time on the forum so we can make our own conclusions about that.
