I can't help by directly answering your question, but I would strongly recommend that you try to get a copy of "The Pattern Welded Blade: Artistry in Iron", by Jim Hrisoulas. I'm sure there are lots of other books on the subject availabe in your local library, maybe you can ILL some, if not.

Define "work"?  They both contain enough carbon to harden well when mixed but they would not be my first choices for a mix with vivid patterns

if you want to know why, read my book, or read it for free in the knife making class section / pattern welding here at IFI
