Differences Miyabi 6000MCT and 7000D Knives

VanquishNL | Jun 2, 202007:05 AM     21

I am not planning to buy a knive soon, but I would like to be informed well.
I like Zwilling Miyabi knives (German-Japanese) and the Miyabi knives contains different series. The two I would like to compare are the

Miyabi 6000MCT
Rockwell 63
3 Layers of steel
Ergonomic cocobolo wood handle

Miyabi 7000D
Rockwell 60
65 layers of (damast)steel
D-handle micarta

German knives are often around 58 HRC
Japanese knives are often around 62+ HRC

So the Miyabi 7000D is a bit of a compromise between a Japanese hard knive and a German more soft knives which don't brittle/break too fast.

But my main questions are:
-Why has the 6000MCT a higher Rockwell rating while only having 3 layers of steel?
-What is the benefit of the 7000D having 65 layers in comparison to the 6000MCT which only have 3 layers of steel?
