How To Tell the Difference between...

How can you tell the difference between a CPM 154 blank and a high carbon blank? It appears that some of mine have mingled and it's been way too long to remember which is which!

The one in question has some very minute surface rust on it...just a tad. But it came right off with a rub of my thumb. So I'm thinking it could be stainless after all. But one of 'em is either 1084 or 1095!
