Most disks were aluminum, but some of the disks were ceramic/glass,
especially in the smaller diameters like the 2.5 inch portable drives.
Find some of those and you'd have very hard disks. The problem is that
although the surface are polished to very good figures,
the edges were not, so I'm not sure what the final result would be. But
starting with those disks, then polishing them could yield
some very good hard edges.
