440C - raise temp to 1875F - hold 30 minutes - plate quench still in foil. If you cryo, try 350F two times two hours temper for about RHC60. If you don't cryo, try 325F two times two hours for about RHC 58.

S30V - raise temp to 1950F and soak 45 minutes - plate quench, still in foil. If you cryo try temper at 400F 2 hrs x 2 tempers for RHC about RHC 60.5. If you don't cryo, go about 400F 2 x 2hrs for about RHC 58

I'll leave 1095 and W2 to others to answer, but it would certainly help them to know the chemistry of the W2.
