Cd, I just went out in the shop, I have Burmese Teak, Honduras Mahogany, Red Oak and American Walnut.
I did the finger nail test ( just to see if I was loosing my mind ) and the Teak and Mahogany and Am Walnut are very close in hardness the red oak being the softest of the bunch
I too have worked with Hardwoods for awhile myself and I going to have to disagree ( most respectfully ) with ya.

Freedom comes when youíre ready to sail away. True freedom comes when you donít have to return
Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
