Blessings for the coming year,
This about knife blade steels. Suppose that you procured some austenitic 12% manganese steel and laminated these together with a core of, say D2 as a cutting edge. Since quenching manganese steel does not cause hardening but rather toughen the steel, would this result in toughness with a hard core?
This likely has been tried as have been most things.
