What's the purpose of laminating the ZDP between AUS-8? The description says in order to make the blade harder and wear resistant, but is this so? I can understand how laminating might make the blade stiffer (less prone to bending), but how would it make the blade harder and more wear resistant?
Or is it merely for a cost savings?
As long as the core is ZDP-189 and the outside is a suitable steel, it shouldn't affect performance. I'm just curious why they chose to laminate instead of going with straight ZDP-189.
