Steel Edge retention charts

It can be a pain in the butt to find concrete information on the edge retention of steels, particularly since everyone seems to have their own anecdotes and experiences, many of which directly contradict each other.
As a result I want to post this here as a general resource. It isn't perfect, but it is as close to empirical testing as I have been able to find, and it is a whole lot better than looking up the chemistry and guessing.
And here is the guy's youtube channel, should you want to support this kind of testing.
