    8670 would be tougher, 80CrV2 would have higher wear resistance, BUT it would be extremely difficult to tell the difference in a blind test between the 2. In other words, if you had 2 blades ground the same and they weren't labeled or marked which steel was which, it would be nearly impossible to tell the difference.
